I know nothing about fashion. In the summer, I would like to wear skirts (I don't wear anything above my knees, and pants get hot, and I'm so short that capris just fit me like regular pants), but I don't know what to wear with them. I like flowey ones, so I can run and play on the ground with the kids, and longer ones, so I can do the above and not worry about flashing the world. I like hippy-ish skirts. But footwear is a mystery to me. I feel like skirts are "dressy", so I feel wrong wearing sport sandals (like tevas) or hiking boots/shoes, sneakers, whatever. But I don't like wearing dress shoes, esp. to the park, and I only have one pair anyway and I don't want to ruin them. So, what do I do? Can anyone post links to pics or a site so I can get an idea of what looks normal/ok/not totally weird? I did the long-skirt-and-big-boots thing in high school, I liked it, but I'm not so sure about it now. Mostly because I have to wear an ankle-length skirt to feel like I look OK with boots, and they usually get in the way of doing things. I like looking nice and looking like *me*, but I don't want things to get in the way. I'm not an accessories girl, though I used to be. Sorry, I just have no real training in this area, and no girlfriends to help me out. My sister and I dress sooo differently from each other, too.
