Why do I think this grey skirt is a sporty skirt! Can a skirt be sporty anyway? Yes of course it can. But I never wear a sporty look. Unless I go for a bicycle ride. But then it is simply adapted to the weather and being on the bicycle. I don’t look stylish when I cycle! At all! And when I wear my sneakers, I wear a feminine skirt or dress or maybe trousers, but certainly not in a sporty way. But somehow I like this sporty look.
*At the beginning of September we have two weeks of vacation and I only post then on Fridays. But if someone would like to write a guest post for my blog, with a link to your own blog of course, I would really appreciate that. This idea is not my own, I saw it on Carrie’s blog Curly Crafty Mom.
Grey sporty skirt
I love a high low hem line. On skirts and dresses. The skirt is therefore elegant, youthful and frivolous! And gray with white is a wonderful combination. Very fresh and sporty. The skirt has an elastic waistband. That wears so comfortable, I always hate it when I feel my clothes pinche, and this is so easy to wear.
Well, the term sporty look doesn’t really make sense with this outfit, except for the colors, because I don’t see myself exercising in these clothes yet. In addition, this skirt is not suitable for cycling at all. Way too long and too wide. I’ve already cycled with this skirt 1 time and was watching the whole time whether it ended up in the spokes. I already had my shoe laces once in my wheel….
This is actually my only grey skirt
The pink top is quite old but I think it looks so nice with the grey and white. I was allowed to choose three items from Angel Clementine and this jacket attracted me straight away. I am a sucker for golden details. I love black and gold, especially clothes with gold buttons. You really should check the site, they sell beautiful items. I thought this jacket was a perfect addition to this outfit, colorwise and style wise. As a contrast with the sneakers.
I never thought I would love wearing sneakers so much. But I like them with almost everything. So nice, because it is of course a lot easier then wearing heels. And I used to wear heels all the time! But I get out of breath now when I wear heels, so they have to be my sitting shoes. What do you think about this sporty grey skirt outfit?
I would love it if you would share your outfits with #nancysfashionstyle and tag @nancysstyle! Thanks!

I am a fan of low and hi hems, too! I feel it gives you a little more coverage in the back, which I like, yet it still shows some leg!!
Indeed, I am a fan too!
Love this cute skirt and how you styled it! Happy Friday!
I love this style of skirt but they always turn out too long on me. I love the buttoned jacket too. Have a lovely weekend Nancy xx
This is a pretty long one indeed. Thanks Laurie, have a great weekend!
I love the pink and grey combo and that’s a great skirt! Have a beautiful weekend!
Thanks! Have a great weekend!
Cute skirt and I can see it dressed up too! I really love that jacket and those buttons – gorgeous!
Thanks for the link up Nancy and have a fabulous weekend!
Lovely swishy skirt – colour goes with everything!
Dear Nancy, this is a sporty, but still feminine and classy look. The skirt is definitely not suitable for cycling. Like you, I feel that I’ve been wearing sneakers a lot lately, which I couldn’t imagine before. But they are so comfortable and when you combine them properly they can look very chic too. Love the pink top and the jacket too. You look great again!
Lovely to hear you have been trying the sneaker trend too. A win win right? Atylish and comfortable!
Nancy, this is one of my favourite outfits of yours so far! I LOVE IT! The colours, the hemline, the sneakers, everything! I can understand why you think it’s a bit sporty too. It’s perfect!
Thank you very much Suzy!
Love this grey skirt! The hem is very cool and loving the mix of grey and pink. I adore the addition of the sporty sneakers! Thanks for the link up Nancy.
Thank you very much Kathrine!
Nancy, this is such a great outfit! I really like this skirt and it looks so great with your cute sneakers. Pink, gray, and black is such a wonderful color combination, too. I have caught my laces in the bicycle spokes before and it wasn’t pretty when I flew ass over handlebars and hit the pavement! Haha So please be careful, my friend! Also, I would LOVE to guest post for you in September!
THanks love! That is wonderful! Shall we Zoom next week?
What a cute grey skirt! I like the handkerchief hem and I love grey and pink together! I’ve been wearing sneakers a lot more too, they do work so well with skirts, as you’ve shown here!
Thank you for the link up!
Hope you are having a good week 🙂
Thanks Mica! Have a great weekend!
I always love a skirt styled with sneakers! Pink and grey is such a pretty combo! Have a wonderful weekend!

Love this fun sporty casual style. It works so well with different tones and it’s so beautiful.
THank you very much!
I loved this skirt instantly when I saw it on instagram this week! I love the hem of it and it looks really great with the sneakers! I have a jersey skirt (more of a long pencil skirt) that I should try this look!
THanks , I loved it too immediately when I saw it for the first time! It’s a skirt I will be wearing a lot!
I’d never cycle in a skirt either, but I think the hi-low hem would create even more problems 🙂 Not sure what is sporty about the look, but perhaps that is just me … Although I don’t think I’ve got much grey in my wardrobe either, I’m loving grey paired with pink, and the jacket and belt is giving it some edge. xxx P.S. Will you be going to the UK in September?
The sneakers are the sporty part Ann, and me of course, hahaha. No I don’t think so, we decide at the end of this week!
Nancy this is a lovely skirt, and I can see you wearing this lots through-out the seasons. Have a super weekend and thanks for hosting the linkup party. Jacqui x
Thank you very much Jacqui!
I just love sneakers with a skirt now too!! It makes the outfit seem so modern and fun!!
Indeed and so comfortable!
Love your handkerchief hem skirt, and the way you styled it! Pink, gray and black is such a chic color combination. Hope you have a wonderful weekend, and thanks for the link up!
Thank you very much Di!
This is a marvelous outfit with so many fun and fabulous details. That jacket was a brilliant choice. Wearing trainers for everyday looks is one of the best trends going and I hope it stays around for a very long time. Who wants to wear uncomfortable shoes when there are other options?
Indeed! But if you had told me that 20 years ago…..lol.
Hi, Nancy – I love that skirt: it looks soft, swingy and comfortable and obviously will go with so many things. Since you dressed up this look a little with the knit jacket, it’s less sporty and more an anthleisure go-anywhere look. You have made it totally your own. So good! Thanks for sharing this look and delving into exploring it as well – Angie, http://www.yourtrueselfblog.com
Thank you very much for your lovely comment Angie!
Such a pretty outfit, Nancy – it’s both soft and tough, which I like. Good call on the jacket, which adds that rock & roll edge to the look. I’m also a fan of uneven hems .
Do you know the coin/elastic trick for wearing skirts while biking? You put the coin on the back of the skirt, between your legs, then pull it through to the front and loop an elastic around it (a hair elastic works). It creates “legs” in the skirt and keeps the fullness from getting caught in the chain. My cycling friends swear by this when wearing full skirts.
Thanks so much for the link-up, Nancy! Have a wonderful weekend!
Oh my goodness, that is a idea! I am going to try that next time we cycle! Thanks Sheila!
Fabulous skirt! I love your jacket too – the gold buttons really make a statement!
I think so too! THanks Emma!
Admired this skirt on IG. Love the way it moves – so light and airy. I like gold details, too. And those tennies are so blingy with their gold details. Catherine looks like an angel on a cloud in her pretty skirt.
Indeed she does, what a gorgeous photo right?
It’s definitely sporty and chic! Those sneakers are cute with it too@ I hope you’re off to a great weekend!
Thank you very much!
Love the structured jacket over the outfit. Ver nice! YOu look great in this and I love the pink with the grey skirt. I need to wear sneakers more with dresses and skirts, sporty and fun!
And comfortable Jess!
I love your sporty look, Nancy! The color combination is perfect with pink and gray and black. So cute! I would love to be a guest host for your blog in September. How fun!
Oh that would be fantastic! I will email you!
That looks like such a versatile skirt and I love that it’s made out of jersey! It looks great with pink and that very chic blazer of yours 🙂

Thank you very much Cheryl!
So cute! This reminds me of a 50’s style outfit with the longer skirt, tennis shoes, and sweater. I absolutely love that fashion era! I ordered a dress in that style, then got the petticoat to go under it, and I plan on ordering a lot more! Thanks for sharing on Traffic Jam Weekend at LifeasaLEOWife.com!
Oh of course! A petticoat underneath! Want to try it straight away!
I love skirts and sneakers together! This outfit is so cute and sporty!
I hope you are having a great week so far!

I love this sporty outfit! The pink and gray are so pretty together. And the jacket is fabulous.
I’d love to guest post for you, but I’m afraid to say yes when we will likely be in the midst of our move. I hope you’ve found someone.
Oh that is so kind of you! Yes I did. And I totally understand as I now how busy a move is!
