the skorts have it

Here & Now: Zara skort + Tweed Blazer
{ What I Wore: Bare Blazer c/o // J.Crew tank // Zara skort (for less) // Steve Madden heels (similar) // boutique necklace }
Here & Now: Zara skort + Tweed Blazer
Ok, so I am the last person you would expect to endorse "jump on the trend-wagon", but when I saw this skort on every blogger & her sister it just made me want it even more.
I seriously rocked some skorts in my day & unlike overalls, this is one trend that is so nice, I would like to experience it twice!

And as much as you might think a skort should be a "niche" item, it is not only the "most complimented by strangers" piece I have ever worn, I have also managed to wear it a different way three days in a row
#booyah!

Also, can we discuss that among the things that Southerners love as much as sweet tea, cobbler & biscuits is.... 
AIR CONDITIONING!?
Summer temps are starting to make their appearance, which means I need to pull out my jackets...
say what!?
Yup, when the temps heat up, the chill bumps come out. The South doesn't play around with their A/C & I have to carry jackets with me always to keep up with the chilly air pumping out indoors. This jacket from BareBlazers is perfect because it is made of light weight Summer-proof materials that are indoor/outdoor chic makers!

  3. I SO agree on the AC thing! I always have to have a cardigan or a jacket with me at all times...it's a little ridiculous if you ask me! So fun meeting you this weekend! We'll def have to try to get together again when I'm in Nashville! :)

  18. Love this geometrical skort. It's a great buy and addition to your summer wardrobe.

    If you get a sec, check out my latest post 'Holy Chic'. It's a great new top I got this week. I would love to read what you think about it.

  19. BAHAHA!! I laughed SO hard at what you said about air conditioner. You're right- AC in the south is NO JOKE! I get SO cold when I go inside somewhere- I have to bring a jacket too! xo

  20. Yes, girl!! You are working that skort! It's so funny that you posted this, because I was looking through some old pictures the other day and found one of me in my awesome jean skort!!

  24. Skorts totally remind me of when I was a kid and wore them all the time! This looks lovely on you, one of the best skort outfits I have seen with that Zara skirt!

  25. It's okay, I've totally bought something just because every other blogger had it. Love those shorts too, it's easy to see why they are so popular!

    ReplyDelete
  26. AHhh, love the skort! I agree, every.single.blogger has posted about this skort. Every time I see the skort, I love it more. Must scoop it up before its gone!!

  27. I never rocked skorts that chic. Had I done so, I might not feel so ashamed of my younger, stupider sartorial self.

  28. I know, I totally bought into the skort, & even though it might be played out on the interwebs, I am having so much wearing it! How a skort can be flattering is just as surprising to me, but I think it is!

  30. Love this whole look! I totally rocked a skirt back in the day and am so tempted to pick this one up. Love this 'for less' find! And I absolutely know what you mean about the air conditioning. Always freezing!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Hahaha, well, that skort certainly looks fantastic on you. :) I agree, usually I try to stay away from pieces that every blogger is wearing but this skort is seriously screaming my name. I think I might just have to go to Zara tomorrow to try it on. You look fabulous.

  32. Dude I totally rocked a skort or two back in the day, never seen one THIS CHIC before though! Leave it to Zara I guess! And I totally know what you mean...indoors in the South is one of the coldest places you can be in! These pictures are smokin Jessica!
