When was the last time you wore a skort?

Top: AE / Skort: Kohl's (similar) / Shoes: Toms

I haven't owned, or seen, a skort since I was in about 8th grade. I'm fairly certain that's when they stopped being "cool". But when I came across this little beauty at Kohl's I fell in LOVE all over again. Its denim and its short, and based on that it didn't feel entirely work appropriate. But when I saw those little shorts underneath I knew I could easily pull this off for work AND it would be a staple in my closet this summer for everything from picnics to baseball games to hanging around the house.
Sadly when I bought it in early spring, I wasn't anticipating the weight I'd gain before summer even started, and it sat unworn in my closet until I could hit the gym enough to button it up.

Finally - success!! And now I'll give it the attention it deserves, even into fall with some cute cable knit tights and a sweater. I thinks it's meant to be.

Am I the only one who hasn't seen a cute skort in YEARS?!

  6. I don't really remember the last time I saw or wore a skort but I definitely vote on bringing them back in every color and pattern! They are so comfortable and you don't have to worry about accidentally showing anything. I have been a big fan of dressy short because they give the feeling of wearing a skort. Thanks for linking up for Real Girl Style!
