a floral sarong skirt for summer

yesterday, we featured a classic pinstripe blazer and skinny jeans for summer.  when you live in warm climate like i do, sometimes jeans, no matter how airy they are, just won’t do. you’ve just gotta reach for something cooler.  for those of you that follow the blog, you know that i love wearing shorts and skirts during the spring and summer months.  they’re both a great way to stay cool but still look chic.  for today’s OOTD, we’re talking skirts:  a floral sarong skirt for summer.

i love wearing patterns during spring and summer, especially florals.  nothing really says “spring” or “summer” quite like a beautiful floral pattern.  am i right ladies?  today, i’m celebrating summer with this floral sarong skirt from Ann Taylor.  it goes with so many things, but in the spirit of “keeping cool”, i’ve paired it with a sleeveless mock neck.  mock necks are such a flexible addition to any wardrobe:  you can wear them with a skirt, pants, or jeans.  and doesn’t the mock neck go great with these block heel sandals?  one of my favorite parts of summer fashion is the shoe selection.  so many fun sandals to mix and match, and block heels are some of my favorites.

staying cool and chic

with humidity levels high and temperatures floating in the mid 80s, we’re always trying to stay cool here in Athens.  although there’s a temptation to retreat indoors to the air conditioning, i like to spend as much time as i can outdoors.  even with my knee surgery, i’ve been gardening as much as i can this spring and summer.  and i’ve even been able to take oscar out for walks on a semi-regular basis.   it feels good to be back outside again.

welcoming in the warm weather 

how have you all been spending the spring and summer months?  are you gardeners?  do you go for regular walks?  is it warm enough where you are to sit outside and enjoy the summer evenings?   there’s so much beauty in the world around us, i’d love to hear how you’ve been taking it all in.

    I love the sarong style skirt! It looks so summery! But for me – I rarely tuck tops in, so maybe the tie effect would be lost. But it looks great on you. I love the colour too. Sadly where I am it’s the middle of winter.

    I love your toile skirt. It reminded me of a wrap around skirt I had in high school…only mine was very short! It was the late 1960’s.

    We are still very locked down here in Seattle area, so gardening has been a great way to pass the days. We also have been doing some outside 6 foot coffee/wine with old friends!

    Loved today’s ootd, you always look so cute!

    I have been gardening (aka: gardening) and walking and a little bike riding. I am trying to enjoy all summer because I am afraid we will be locked down this fall and winter. Love the color and print on the skirt. I love to wear skirts in the summer.

    Love the skirt! I bought a couple bohemian wrap skirts at boutiques here in Cincinnati. The weather is finally great, swimming in our inground pool with the grandkids daily. Trying to garden, weed, plant flower pots. So far a nice spring summer, just celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary June 7, lovely with our 4 kids and spouses and 7 grandchildren!

    What a pretty skirt! Looks great on you, Beth. The colors are classic, and great for spring through summer. I’m so glad you’re able to get out and about. My daily walks around lakes and through greenway areas are my therapy. I love them and find them very mentally soothing when news is just sad and disturbing. I’m also sketching and painting again, and have tried to do some en plein aire pieces, too. It keeps me from feeling as isolated.
