Beat the Heat - Favorite Summer Skirt

I am typically not the type of person to wear dresses or skirts unless, say, I am going to church or a wedding reception. In fact, when I was growing up, getting dressed up was almost like a chore, I truly despised it. Every week when my family returned home from church I would race into my room and immediately throw on a pair of pants or shorts.

Now that I'm older and have matured just a little bit, I am realizing that skirts are not so bad. Plus, if its anything above 85 degrees outside (which it is well over that ever single day here in NM) a nice airy skirt is a great way to "beat the heat."

I found this lovely cream lace skirt at a boutique in Colorado on our little family trip, 4th of July weekend. I normally only window shop at boutiques (because I can't fathom the price tags) but this one happened to be on sale for $25...not to bad especially considering I have already worn it about 10 times!

Here I am proving you can do just about anything in a skirt...even ride the Alpine Slides!

Do you have a favorite summer skirt or something you typically wear to keep cool?


  1. Ohh, love that! You look so chic! And that 1st pic is so cool! I'm loving the maxi dress this year

  2. I am the same way...dresses and skirts on sundays! However I really do like skirts and dresses...I just feel I have to be more a lady in them and my son is a sweet little

  3. I'm loving this skirt! Skirts really are the best for summer and keeping cool.

    Regarding the watermelon cookies on a stick(I don't see your email)...I roll them a bit thicker to accomodate the stick which seems to help it hold better.
