The Skort Secret

Monday, June 13, 2016


The evolution of a trend is a funny thing. These days it's almost as if we should have held onto our tween-age wardrobes with all the unexpected trends reemerging -- hence this skort. I know, I bought a skort. But I have no regrets.

I mention my work wardrobe at least once a week on this blog, but my shopping habits really have changed since joining the office life. Those summer days of simply buying the cutest dress on the floor are now spent debating whether that piece is corporate-appropriate. I guess that's just another part of adulting.

Admittedly I do miss wearing shorts more often than on weekends, so I went for a little customization. Technically you can wear shorts to work if no one actually sees them, right? For all my fellow working ladies, try pairing long outerwear over a skort for an office look that is secretly ready for whatever the evening brings. Looks like everyone's favorite tween trend came in handy.
