skort story

Skorts are practical, and this one in particular is incredibly flattering. Now, skorts aren’t exactly a new look for me, I’ve actually been rocking them since 5th grade. But unfortunately, my Catholic middle school did not have Topshop design the girls’ uniforms. Thus, they ended up being an un-trendy knee-length pair of plaid shorts with one fabric flap in the front and one in the back. The flaps made it look like a little pleated skirt, without the possibility of upskirting from the boys (before upskirting was even a word). The problem was, if you weren’t careful with your back flap, it would fall into the toilet when you pulled your skort down to pee. Of course you might not even notice until after you were done using the bathroom, so you would have a urine-soaked flap to try to rinse off, ring out, and dry halfway under the hand dryer before doing the my-flap-fell-in-the-toilet-and-I-peed-on-it walk of shame back to class. This happened to me more times than I’d like to admit, and it was always awkward to spend the rest of the day walking around with a wet ass flap.

As if middle school wasn’t hard enough.

Bright and a little vampy. I love my buttoned-up blouses, and short sleeves are an easy way to continue wearing them in the July heat.

If you’re like me, $300 is too much to spend on a swimsuit. So if you, too, like photo graphic swimwear, I suggest clicking through any of the links under the second photo. Much more affordable.
