As the spring sun heats up (I’m pretending I live somewhere other than NY – somewhere the sun shines), we often go looking for cooler wardrobe options like shorts and capris. The skirt is often overlooked and underworn.
That’s a shame, because a nice cotton skirt can be cool, cofortable, and can add a bit of whimsy to an otherwise ordinary day.
Cotton skirts like this one from the GAP are my first choice in summer. I have a problem with legged bottoms. I bet that term conjures crazy images in your head. Try and free yourself from your imagination for a moment. I mean pants or shorts.
I’m one of those women who need to try on no less than 100 pairs of pants or shorts in order to find one well-fitting pair. My legs are also …hmmm…what’s a good description?
Trunk like? Solid? Alabaster Pillars?
Fat. That about sums up my problem. I’ve got fat legs and skirts cover a multitude of sins. The skirt is easy, breezy, and carefree.
They can be worn with t-shirts, tanks, or paired with a great denim jacket.
You can pair them with sandals or flip-flops and they are just as casual as a pair of walking shorts.
I think this skirt from Target is tons of fun. By the looks of it, you can dress this right up for an evening out.
You need better legs than mine for this one; however, this model is probably almost 6 feet tall and that skirt would hit a little closer to my knee.
I’m not sure if it’s geographic, but I’ve noticed that women in the South are more inclined to wear a skirt for casual events or as everyday wear. I’m not sure why and it intrigues me.
Do you think women in the South are generally more feminine than Northerners?
Do you wear skirts?

An important rule for you short lovers: Shorts must be longer than they are wide. This prevents your cheeks from getting unnecessary sunburn.
