I hate wearing shorts in the summer. I'll wear them to the gym and on the tennis court, but I rarely have them on at any other time. I prefer skirts and dresses on warmer days. I found this linen skirt at J.Crew and I think it would be ideal for trips to my research site this summer. Yes? No? It's a good length, I like linen and it has pockets. I love skirts and dresses that have pockets. I hope it goes on sale soon!
