Skirt + Shorts = Skort (For under $20!)

Skirt + Shorts = Skort (For under $20!)

I know what you’re probably thinking… “Skort”? Isn’t that what I wore when I was in kindergarten? And the answer is yes. You probably did. I definitely did, and I freakin’ loved that article of clothing. It’s got the girliness of a skirt but you don’t have to worry about bending over and accidentally flashing a passerby. Plus you seem pretty trendy because skorts break the short/skirt mold!

I found this cute skort at Zara for only $19.99, which rocks because it really marks like all the boxes on my shopping must-haves list. Comfortable, check. Versatile, check. Affordable, double check! Even better, it’s available online! Check it out here.

I paired the skort with a denim shirt by Paper Crane that I got on sale at Marshall’s for only ten bucks. Which means that the majority of this outfit cost me $30. Ugh, I love sale shopping. There’s nothing more satisfying than putting together an outfit for less than what some people spend on a dinner date!

Zara is a relatively new store in the mall closest to me and I think I really like it. Especially right now — I think everything is on sale!

My sandals are from TOMS and I got them like 2 years ago at Nordstrom Rack. They actually give me blisters but when I tried them on my feet already hurt from shopping all day in San Francisco so I couldn’t tell! I still like them a lot though, the denim print goes with almost everything and the sole is a little bit squishy which makes them comfortable. Here’s a similar pair (not for Nordstrom Rack prices but still, similar!) and then here’s some from the rack that are the same style but a different color.

My necklaces are the same ones that I wore in this post — simple layering necklaces from Forever 21!

Also, this look is accidentally patriotic — but would totally work for a backyard 4th of July BBQ. I’ll most likely be hanging out in my red, white & blue bikini by the pool during this holiday weekend, but if I have a need to dress up this will be what I wear! What do you guys usually wear on the 4th of July? (Question geared at my American readers, unless my international homies are out there celebrating America too😋)



  • This outfit is so cute! Especially for the 4th!

  • I LOVE this outfit, that color looks adorable on you!

    Southern And Style

  • This is SO freakin’ cute! I used to wear skorts ALL the time when I was little so I’m so happy they’re back in style!

    • Oh my gosh same! Nothing better than getting to re-live old trends, right?!

  • This is such a cute outfit! LOVE the skort and love that you only dished out $30 on this whole outfit!! You go girl!

  • This is such a cute look! I love Zara, their stuff is always great!

    The Blush Blonde

    • Isn’t it the best?! It’s different than what you find in most stores, but in a good way!

  • I didn’t even know that they still made skorts. I love them!

  • This is cute! I know I’m so late to the party but I love that TOMS branched out from their basic shoe that they began with because their sandals/boots/etc. are great!

    • Oh yes same! I was never that big of a fan of their original canvas shoe, but their sandals are to die for!

  • What a gorgeous look! Love the skort. So pretty!

  • Skorts are one of my favorite trends to come back in style! So easy and comfortable. I love anything comfy that tricks people into thinking you actually tried to look good!

  • I’m not usually a fan of skorts because they look so awkward on me, but these one is SO cute! I may just have to give them a second try 🙂 By the way – have you tried Band Aid Friction Block? It’s like $7 and basically eliminates getting blisters from shoes! Definitely worth checking out 🙂

  • That skort is too cute for words! Wish we had a Zara where I lived 🙂

    • Zara rocks! Maybe give their online shopping a try, they’ve got some great finds 🙂
