That looks fabulous and I am bright green with envy. Go girl it suits you and the colour rocks. Tuck in while you can and enjoy being young. Merry xmas

This skirt really works on you, it really shortens your top half and lengthens your legs

Great outfit--this pink is your color--you OWN IT! Love it with your black/pink multi-color print blouse.

Based on the photos, I think it looks great, however, I get your perspective having made this skirt when it first came out. It just seemed too high-waisted (and was very tight) and in person it just didn't look right somehow, I thought it was my body type and style. It has lingered in my closet unworn.

So cute! I agree, keep that shirt tucked IN! It looks very flattering on you!

I love your skirt and am SO envious that you have the waist to wear it! I do not think it is too high at all. The hot pink color is a terrific choice and the blouse definitely looks wonderful tucked in! I so appreciate your posts with all your beautiful outfits for the inspiration they give me.

Here's another vote for the tucked in blouse. Beautiful skirt. Fits you very well. Great color

Looks fabulous with the tops and love the skinny black belt. I don't think it's dated at all. Looks great! (I, too, vote for tucked in blouse.) What is the blouse (black/pink/white) pattern?

the fit is perfect and the color gorgeous

I love this look. I think you should wear it with blouse tucked in. The lines really suit you.

CUTE cute cute....love the color - IN now for 2011 as another thread on the boards tells us. ;)

I was just reading on the message boards about the Pantone color of the year -- and I think this skirt is it. So even if the waistline is dated, the color is hot. Although I love the waistline -- looks great on you, and I like it with the skinny belt.

Thanks for your great review and blog posting! How complimentary to your figure (ooh - any tips on exercises to get one's waist like yours) and how lovely with the blouses you have perfectly paired with your beautiful skirt.

I don't see that it's dated at all...fits you perfect and looks great..I say wear it just as you have in the picture..many compliments to come..

I like this on you, and don't think it comes across as too exaggerated a look, with the tucked in blouse. The belt you have with it gives enough of a line at the true waist imo.

That is cute and flattering too. I think it looks great the way you've styled it...c'mon, keep that shirt IN!
