I joined a group of ladies to share what we wear during the seasons, skirt or dress-wise. This blog hop is hosted by Dusty at To The Moon and Back.
I wear skirts most of the time with the exception of a comfy pair of sweats when I feel like lounging around the house.
My decision to wear mainly skirts was more of a personal decision than a religious one. During the last seven years, I have found them to be quite comfortable and I now prefer them over pants. I never did like how I looked in jeans and especially slacks. I don't have much of a backside, so pants just hung.
Skirts actually add to my figure and I don't have to be self-conscious of my rear.
I also chose to switch from short skorts to longer skirts when it hit me that I am the example of what a women should look like for my daughter. And not only my daughter, but my son also. Ouch! Out went the short shorts and skorts.
Here are a few outfits I wore the last few months. The day I wrote this post, 04-19-14, it is still chilly outside, so long sleeve shirts or sweaters are still in. I *think* the chilly season is at a close though. Yay!
Don, my husband, likes me in collar shirts. I have this shirt in a few colors. My wardrobe is fairly simple.
Jean skirts are my thing! They are so easy to dress up or down. They are also comfortable. During the late fall, all winter and into spring, I wear mostly jean skirts. They are heavier which keeps me warmer.
MaryEllen wears leggings under her skirts to stay warm, something I haven't tried yet but should.
Trying to make this fun. I am not much for taking pictures of myself. Being part of the Seasonal Skirts group definitely is not easy because of that, but fun nonetheless.
Sorry about the blurry picture. Not sure what happened.
We had a few 'teaser' days when it was just beautiful outside, reaching into the 80's. But, they only lasted a few days. I am so waiting for summer.
Argh! These pictures came out a little fuzzy, but they will do.
I don't tuck my shirts in my skirts (hey it rhymes) because I am tall and it just looks weird. Because of my long legs, I need my torso to look balanced. Tucking in my shirt will make my torso too short.
That is one thing I hated about the work world when I had to wear uniforms, slacks and a shirt tucked in. Yuck! Glad those days are over.
To stay warm around the house, I will wear a thin sweater over my blouse. It allows me to easily shed it if I get too hot or add it if I get too cold. I don't like stuffy houses, so I like the windows or front door open even though it is cold out, at least for a little while.
This is our land line phone for when the electricity goes out and our wireless phones stop working.
I just noticed I didn't do any back shots. Oops! Maybe next time.
That is pretty much my dress for this season. Hopefully next month it will warm up a little more.
This is where I get my jean skirts. They send out coupon codes often when you sign up for their newsletter.
