Skirting

We're in the middle of the hot, humid dog days of summer. No matter what I put on, it's hard for me to look nice when I leave the house, because after just a couple of minutes I'm covered in sweat. However, I've discovered a fashion hack that I think helps a little bit. Golf skirts!

I first discovered the power of golf skirts and skorts last year when I found some at a thrift store.  They're designed to be easy to move in and adhere to the modest dress code at many courses. I think those traits make them perfect for active activities and errands.

The skirts are easy to put on, but much dressier than shorts.  The ones I own fall just above my knees and have a flattering true waist cut that makes it easy to look pulled together.  They also have nice large pockets that hold my cell phone.

Any type of shirt pairs well with the basic skirts--tees, polos, or button downs.  I can still look acceptable while wearing my favorite flip flops, but a nice pair of sandals or canvas shoes helps dress the outfit up even more.  When I'm wearing one of my skirts I feel acceptably dressed both in the city and the suburbs.

Now that I think about it, I may have to start shopping more in the golf section of the department store.

  2. I have a large collection of skirts I wear during the warm months. Unfortunately, they do not have pockets. I'm wearing one today when our temperature is 109.

    1. 109?!? That sounds pretty miserable.

  3. I wish I felt comfortable enough to wear skirts in public. I have body issues and try to keep covered up in public. I do wear longer skirts and dresses though and that helps me keep cooler.

    1. I'm sorry to hear you're not comfortable wearing certain clothes. However, I think anything that lets the breeze in is a good thing.

  5. That's a superb idea. Very practical. We're not having such a hot summer in the UK this year.

    1. The older I get the more I favor practical over fashion (although when I find items that are both I snap them up!). I envy your nice weather.
