Inspirational Monday: The Grown Up Skort

skort

I haven't really gave to much thought about skorts. Then again when I think of the skort I think of my childhood ones like the variety of jean and khaki ones that I owned. Being an adult now I never thought I would see one that I liked or even wear one. Well I was ooo soooo wrong. After hitting the Tibi sample sale a few months back my view on the skort had ever been changed. How could you not love a mint green skirt that cut open in the front to reveal hidden shorts. Hanging on the rack I knew it had to be mine. Perfect for work for the summer and something that can be taken into winter - functional and at a discount of the price I just couldn't pass it up. 


Shirt: Old Navy (old)
Skort: Tibi (sample sale)

Shoes: Marc by Marc Jacobs 

Bag: c/o R&Em

Sunglasses: local Brooklyn Boutique

Scarf: Alexander McQueen (ebay)

I love that Tibi took something full of youth and made it sophisticated and still yet playful. It is a piece that can easily be worn to work without having it being inapporiate. I love that Tibi always has the everyday woman but someone who still likes to look young but chic at the same time. 


What do you think of the grown up skort? Would you wear it?

  22. Oh my goodness I looove those wedges. Gotta love Marc Jacobs. But I don't know if I'd ever wear a skort, to be honest. Then again, I've learned never to say never to clothing trends/items. I might find one I like someday, too!
