I'm in love...

Continuing from yesterdays blog post about my newly found love of frilly and girly clothing, I want to take some time out to write about an extra special love I have found.
Hold on wait a minute. Those things my mom forced me to wear that was some creature combination of a skirt in the front and shorts in the back?
Kinda like a mullet? Or a spork?
I guess I can't say they are a new love but rather a love I never knew I had. 
Skorts were the compromise between my mom I think. I'd have to ask her though to be safe.
She got the super girly me in a skirt and I still got my shorts. 
However that flap was really kinda annoying...
But let's not reminisce in the past, I'm here to talk about my feelings for them now.
I love them now. It's really as simple as that. They have so much going for them!
Their cute designs, the fact that they can be worn at anytime of the year and then how practical they can be. You can run and jump and play (I can still do all these things as a 20 something year old, don't question it) and you won't have to worry about exposing yourself to the world!

Now there are two types. There are your traditional skorts; skirts on top of shorts or shorts with the weird annoying flap. And then there are culottes. Culottes are shorts that are made to look like skirts. At least that's how I tend to think of them.

These first five images are actually culottes.
They look like cute ruffly skirts but are in fact cute ruffly shorts.

I stumbled upon them today as I was going through

I found them from a Japanese brands aptly named Tokyo fashion.

As you can see, they work for all times of the year.

Just add some tights or over the knee socks, boots and a cute sweater and you have a nice girly look for winter. Add a cute casual blouse and you have a nice spring/summer outfit. With a wide brown belt and cute denim jacket, the same bottom can give you a nice fall look!

This one above is actually the only literal or true definition of the word skort I've shown today. It's literally a pair of shorts sewn under the skirt. Just like the other examples shown above, it too is great for all times of the year.

Liz Lisa, the Gyaru Japanese clothing store I mentioned in my post yesterday has some really great skorts that are on sale all year round. 

Now to figure out where to get mine from...xD

Also, I want to let everyone know that I've started a tumbler for my blog. It can be found here. It's the first one I've ever done so please treat me kindly!
