The Problem with Skirts

Something about being out of an office setting makes me suddenly feel very dressed up in a skirt. When I would go to my 9 to 5 every day, a skirt was a no-brainer. I almost felt sloppy in pants (because of the impending wrinkles that would occur while sitting all day), so typically all I would wear was a skirt or a dress. But these days I feel like I should be going to the Oscars whenever I put a skirt  or dress on (hence the amount of pants I wear). And yes, this is what I would wear if I was attending the Oscars. Fancy, no? Who am I wearing? Old Navy. 

I used to wear wrap skirts when I was a little girl and they would fascinate me. Mainly because the ones I wore had spandex shorts built into them. This meant no activity was out of question -- if I wanted to play kickball or go down a hot metal slide, then the sky was the limit. Maybe that's my issue with skirts now -- if only they had biker shorts built in, then I'd start wearing more of them. 


  1. I feel the exact same way about skirts and dresses. I just feel like I can't do anything! Too much work sometimes. I love this skirt though. Gorgeous color!

  2. Haha I love wearing skirts because pants just don't fit me right. It'd be really nice if they came with built in biker shorts though!
    Love your outfit, you wear Old Navy very well :)


  3. I love the pop of color from the contrasts of bright blue and orange. So smart. I need to try this combo myself since I love color! Thanks for the inspiration.

  4. Love the pop tangerine. And your hair is super cute that way. How did u do it?
