I've always had a thing for skirts. You'd think I'd be scarred by them from my private Christian school days of ankle length khaki or blue jean skirts. But nope. Even though we've had some rough patches, skirts and I will always have love. The flowy feminine ones, the sleeker sexy ones, the floral summer ones, the down-to-your-toes hippie ones- I love them all. Michael always rolls his eyes when I fawn over a dress or skirt in a store. He always says "You love skirts so much, but you never wear them".
Darn him, he's right. As much as I try to stay up to date on fashion and look like I know what I'm doing, the truth is most days I'm in jeans and some form of a plain shirt. It's pretty obvious I'm no fashion blogger, and like another blogger recently shared, I feel super dressed up in the clothes that other women wear everyday.
I suppose that's why I tend to shy away from skirts. I feel so dressed up and a little out of place, especially in the town we live in. But when I see someone else in a skirt, I never think "geez, what are they so dressed up for?". I need to be better about not caring what other people think and wear what I like. I dare say my closet would change if I took on that attitude. And I'd probably buy the dozen pretty skirts I try on in the dressing room instead of sadly putting them back on the rack.
What about you?
Is there a certain look that you love but shy away from because you might feel out of place?
