Everyone seems to talk about how wearing skirts casually is much better than wearing shorts. So I dedicated a week to trying it out. My thoughts:
- it was a wedgie-free week (several of my shorts have a riding up issue....)
- cool and breezy
- I don't think I ever stuck out, I only thought I did - I think wearing skirts is pretty normal, so I just need to get over my own preconceived notions that skirts are for church only.
- verdict - I think I could be converted to wearing a skirt or two a week - I did enjoy them!
So, want to critique the outfits I put together?? - of course you do - - here we go:
Monday - Skirt from DownEast that I just bought on clearance. Trevor, who hardly ever comments on my outfits, said, "that skirt is just (head shaking no) weird - it looks like it's sagging - - but what do I know, better just ask your blog readers" - so, what do you think? I kind of like it, but that could be because it was SOO comfy!
Tuesday: I whipped this Green Stripe Skirt up (tutorial coming - so easy!!) out of some clearance knit I found at Hancock Fabrics. I kind of wanted to wear it with the pink shirt in the previous picture, but didn't think I could wear the same shirt two days in a row. I', branching out because the old me would have worn a white shirt to match the white stripe.
Wednesday: I got this pink stripe skirt at a garage sale awhile ato for $0.50 - I thought it was a deal so I bought it, even though Kate said it was ugly. I think it looks alright on, right?
Friday: Denium skirt, also from a garage sale ($1) - this was the day I had my garage sale, so in the early morning it was pretty chilly, hence the leggings and sweater. Are denium skirts dated?!?
blogged HERE, when I only had a few followers...) - I think it's a little dressier of a skirt, so I saved it for Saturday because I had a baby shower to go to. I also flipped my hair out - fun??
