For years, I've worn skirts and dresses only on Sundays or for a special occasion or event.
But this summer, as the Phoenix heat has started rolling back in, I've started to understand the draw of a casual skirt or dress when it's a chilly 117 degrees and you'd like to avoid heat stroke.
My friend Kayla is just launching a skirt line called Lark, and as soon as I tried on this skirt, I was sold. It's long enough to easily wear while I'm playing with my kids, the elastic waistband means it's totally comfortable (but it's a flat waistband in the front, so it looks a little more polished), and it has pockets, so I can stash my keys and phone when we're going to the park.
I know that my jeans aren't packed away for good, but it's nice to expand my repertoire a little.
