Skirts: I Need Them

I am in desperate need of some skirts. Fall skirts, to be specific. Badly.

In the summer on the weekends, I live in dresses. Shorts and I are not really friends, but summer dresses make me happy. However, I have realized that when it comes to the cooler seasons, I tend to resort to pants far too easily and that needs to change.

I blame this on my profession. As you know, I work for a film studio which frankly, does not lend itself well to fancy clothing. Studios are dirty, full of equipment and machinery and absolutely massive. I spend much of my days running back and forth and wearing heels to work is simply not conducive to what I do. My poor heels now sit in my closet, alone and waiting for the weekends when they get to shine.

But at the end of the day, I am still a girly girl and I want to wear skirts. Thankfully, boots are really in this season and I think I can do boots. They are substantial, practical and look cute with skirts. I can easily still do all of the running around that I usually do but still feel feminine. Yay! Bring on the skirts!!!

I really like this one from J.Crew. I see it with a white collared shirt tucked in and with a belt, tights and tall boots. It is professional and doable in my life.

I also really like this tweed skirt. I like that shirt as well, however I am not feeling the socks. Perhaps I am just not fashion-forward enough, but I think they look ridiculous. Anyway, this is another look that I think I could easily incorporate into my day.

Looks like I may have to make a trip to J.Crew. Sometimes things just need to happen.

How about you? Anything you are looking to incorporate more of into your wardrobe? Do tell...


  1. Those skirts are gorgeous! I am a definite pants and boots gal all the way! I would love to wear skirts, they just don't look too good on me! Happy weekend! xxoo :)

  2. This fall I'm looking for more dresses. Since I am extra short, I've decided to forgo pants. I'll save the money I would have used to have my short pants hemmed and buy new skirts!
