Skirting Around in Style.....

Spring Trend Alert 2009

I've always preferred dresses and skirts for summer, however cute skinny jeans and tapered capris also make their rounds in my summer wardrobe. Flirty skirts are an excellent way to show off your lovely bronzed gams while providing a playful alternative to a dress. Skirts have become uber chic this season and can easily transcend into day/night. For daytime, many fashionistas are opting for a casual look complete with a ballerina flat and a tank. While many are parlaying this look into evening with a sexy heel for an easy sassy look.

Take a look at some our favorites and how you can wear them.....
