Spring Skirts - Love Them, Hate Them or Somewhere in Between

Spring can be a great time to break out your skirts. In early spring, we keep tights and boots on with them, but as the weather warms and Memorial Day gets closer, we shed the tights and boots in favor of bare legs, ballet flats and sandals, along with lighter and brighter skirts and dresses.

This is a look I love in catalogs and on other women, but it's a hard look to wear myself. We all have parts of our body that we aren't thrilled with, and my legs are one of mine. I have very pale skin, despite my love affair with Jergens. Not only that, without the lengthening benefits of tights (worn with boots or heels), I think skirts make me look shorter and heavier.

But despite my own misgivings, I have a few spring and summer skirts I like and I enjoy pulling together some looks to change up my style.

Black and White Graphic Print Skirt for Spring - Styled with a Denim Shirt

One skirt that I have had in my closet for a while, is a simple black and white graphic skirt from Talbots. There's not much magic to it, it has a simple elastic waistband, and fits straight down in pencil-skirt style. The fabric is a great weight, so it lays nicely and works with bare legs or with tights. The black and white graphic print makes it an all-year wardrobe piece.

I wanted to pair it with my denim shirt because right now, I am loving the look of denim with black and white.  A simple white tank, and black flip flops completed a simple (and comfortable) errand-running day outfit.

  1. I am a fan of skirts! I am loving a tangerine skirt from Loft at the moment. It was a purchase in the late winter and it helped me get through the end of winter and transition into spring!
