Skirting the Issue of Summer Heat

Thus far in Pittsburgh the weather has been exceedingly mild. But in the spirit of seasonal dressing, I've taken to going bare legged, and wearing skirts as often as possible. While I do own a few pairs of shorts, I tend to mostly wear dresses in summer. After picking up some key skirt pieces, I have more options.

I bought the Anna Sui for Anthropologie skirt on the left and the A.P.C. skirt on the right in Georgetown, back in May. Since then, they've been summer staples for me.

I tried on this anthropologie skirt in Georgetown also, but it was too big. So my friend Lilykind from Fashionism.org proxy shopped and found it for me!

I fell in love with a See By Chloe bow skirt but couldn't find it in my size for a reasonable price so I settled for this Juicy Couture number.

Lastly, I didn't get this 3.1 Phillip Lim sailor skirt, but I hope to find it on ebay eventually.

With all of these fantastic skirts, I might need to upgrade my tops. In the meanwhile, I'll keep pairing them with American Apparel tri blend deep v tshirts.

i love skirts and i also live in them over the summer. i actually am in the market for a few more.

i no longer can wear dresses, thanks to breastfeeding, which used to be my true summer staple. alas!

I didn't even think about their functionality for a breast feeding mama!! That is a really good point. Unless the dress is a shirt dress style that buttons down low enough for access, they are horribly impractical because they deny your beeb access.

I am hunting for this one boat print skirt from anthropologie on ebay because the anthro sale price is still too hefty. If you're looking for anything specific, let me know and I can keep an eye out. :)
