We haven’t always worn skirts. But, in 1996 I started wearing skirts and dresses a lot after the birth of our 2nd daughter. I was always drawn to feminine and more dressy attire. I went to Christian school most of my life and blue jeans weren’t in the dress code so for a good part of my life I “dressed” up. After the birth of our 2nd daughter I would wear a lot of Laura Ashley dresses and have the girls do the same. I no longer pay much matter to wearing skirts and dresses now.
It is a natural choice for us. We do wear leggings for walking at times. The funny part (as seen in a photo below) is we might wear pants around a mosquito filled bonfire, but a skirt to hay in! HA!) It is all what you get used to. Just like it might make one uncomfortable to slip on a skirt as they are not used to it we find it the same for donning pants on jeans.
We are not against pants per se but we feel more feminine when dressed feminine. People really treat you different (in a good way, like a lady) when you wear skirts/dresses.
“Some people ask how do you stay warm in the winter”? We wear wool tights, leggings or a simple pair of wool socks can really warm you up. Again, it is all getting used to something.
If you want to try a challenge, try wearing dresses for 1 week and you will note some interesting facts. I did this years back and it just stuck. People treat you different when you wear dresses.
Note: This in no way means you need to dress dowdy or in the traditional blue jean jumper/white tennis shoe look. God created us to be a temple for Him and there is nothing wrong with being beautiful. There is no glory in being dowdier than one another… And, we are ladies so why not wear skirts any way? :)
