It’s time for another splurge vs. save post, because we love looking good for less! If you’re ITK when it comes to this year’s seasonal trends, then you know sporty skirts are all the rage this summer. This athletic chic look mixes preppy and practical pieces for a look that will take you from a morning on the courts to an afternoon lunch on the boat. Or just, like, running errands around town, dropping the kids off at camp, wistfully gazing out at your backyard wishing you had panoramic views of the Long Island Sound…whatever. See our summer splurge vs. save inspiration below.
