"August Wardrobe Remix [Day 14 of 31]": Grown Up

Shirt – from Express (old); Skirt – LOFT Outlet Store Lace Skirt (similar); Blazer – from The Limited (old); Shoes – DSW Anne Klein Latham Pumps in Pewter (find it on Amazon.com here); Belt –  borrowed from a dress purchased at Zulily.com (similar); Necklace – Pearl Necklace (gift)

One cannot help but feel grown up wearing high heeled shoes.  It’s like a rite of passage, when a girl steps into her first pair of four/five/SIX??-inch heels and begins teetering around, hoping not to fall/sprain an ankle/look absolutely ridiculous.  While I have worn heels in the past, I did not prefer them because I always felt so clumsy in them and have felt the pain associated with simply walking in them for extended periods of time.  But now…I’ll deal with the pain because they really do transform the way one looks (since when did my legs look like THAT??  O.O’ ).  I guess that means I’m a grown-up now.

It seems like yesterday I still felt like a kid…skipping and dancing as 
I walked, watching cartoons, chasing my dog around like a maniac.  
Oh wait, that WAS yesterday.  Maybe I’m not as grown up as I thought I was.
Here’s a question I’ve been pondering today.  Work attire – how short is too short when it comes to skirt length?  Case in point, I was wondering all day today if this white lace skirt was too short for work.  I had to dress a bit more professionally today because I had a couple of meetings that called for more professional attire.  But I was wondering whether this skirt was a bad pick.
What do y’all think?  How long does a skirt need to be to be work appropriate?
