    I love wearing skirts! It’s so easy to go from casual to glam by wearing the right skirt and just changing up your top, accessories, and shoes. I love wearing skirts more than jeans or shorts too ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for the tips. I actually follow these rules kasi I’m on the heavy bottom type. So skirts may make or break my outfit. I have short legs so the length is always an issue.
