Do you remember skorts? Growing up I always wanted to be in pretty skirts and dresses, but I was crazy active and messy and all over the place, so my mom always tried to trick me into wearing skorts. I hadn’t really revisited the idea since until I came across this blush skort at Forever21 a few weeks ago, and this time no one had to trick me into putting it on.

Can I just say that skorts are my new favourite thing? Paired with a cute crop top, tights, and an oversized vintage sweater, this outfit is the perfect combination of comfy and cute. I still prefer dresses and skirts to pants even now, and it turns out skorts are a perfect happy medium, especially this time of year. Why should you have to choose between a skirt and shorts, right?
