Seasonal Skirt Wearing: Summer Edition 2014

In All You Do uses affiliate links within its posts. You may read more on our disclosure policy.

Summer may seem like a strange time to wear skirts, but I find them wonderful. As I got older, I rarely wore shorts outside my house – so I never really reaped the benefits anyway. But skirts, yeah…the nice subtle breezes and not sticky material on my legs is so nice.

Outfit #1

Maxi dress from Dillard’s (gift from my Mother-in-Love)

White Tank and sweater from CATO

Black Flip flops from Walmart

As I mentioned in the Spring Edition, I have been solely skirt wearing for over four years now and love it. I know it’s not for everyone and our decision for this came out of an experience I had while shopping after our first daughter was born. Nevertheless, it’s always nice to dress up and look nice when going outside the house. I had a little help this time with the picture taking and not all of them turned out perfectly, but my oldest is learning! And please forgive the fact that some of them are inside. I always prefer natural light to a flash, but with all the rain we’ve been having – it simply wasn’t feasible.

So here are some of my favorite Summer outfits – in a smaller size than I wore during the Spring months!! YAY!!!


Outfit #2

Yellow top, white tank, Maxi skirt and jewelry all from CATO

White and yellow flip flops – WalMart

I love the ease and comfort of maxi skirts, not to mention how long and flowing they are!!


Outfit #3

Top from CATO several years ago

Skirt is I.C.I. brand and I don’t remember where it came from, but I think…a fabric store? Maybe?

Necklace and matching oval bracelet from CATO and the other two bracelets courtesy of a sweet friend of mine back home in OK!!

Shoes are braided faux leather Airwalk brand from Target (years ago)

red white & blue

Outfit #4

You may remember this shirt from the Spring Edition. It’s so versatile and I love it!

This time I paired with this a more summer skirt from, where else…CATO and a red infinity scarf from WalMart. Although you can’t see it, I am wearing a navy blue tank under the shirt as well – also from CATO. I have had these flip flop heels for years and still love them. They are the No Boundaries brand, but honestly can’t remember where I bought them. This was the perfect outfit to wear the Sunday before Independence Day.



Another shirt (CATO) you may recognize from the Spring Edition.

This time I’m pairing it with a nice, flowing, shorter brown skirt from…yep, CATO. You can’t tell very well in the photos, because of the opaqueness of the necklace, but it is actually a light sea foam green-type color. The flip flops are ruffled, brown material and from Target (years ago).

blue & green

Outfit #6

I was pleasantly surprised when I tried on this skirt given to me from my Mom!! It’s another size smaller and from the “other” side of CATO!!! WHOOT!

The shirt is an old shirt (CATO) I had, but so soft and comfy that I was thrilled when it worked so nicely with this skirt.

The necklace is the lime-ish green color and the silver bracelets are all from CATO as well.

  1. Beautiful skirts and jewelry! I got out of the habit of wearing necklaces during the baby years, but those make me want to buy some new pieces. 🙂 And congratulations on reaching a smaller size! Woohoo!

    1. It has been several years since I’ve worn jewelry on a regular basis. I don’t wear earrings anymore, so it’s just the necklace and bracelets. If you have a CATO near you, you should totally check them out!! Their jewelry is sooo cute and reasonably priced too! 😉

  2. I love all of your outfits! You look so lovely!!!

    1. Thank you @lauraprater:disqus! 😉

  3. You hit the yellow band wagon too! I still haven’t tried that color out. I do love the turquoise though!

    1. I have always been a fan of yellow, but wasn’t sure I wore it well. I do love it though! And yes, the turquoise is one of my new favorites! Thanks for stopping @erin_slocum:disqus!
