The skater dress has become somewhat ubiquitous in clothing stores that I shop in lately. Usually when I see them, I write them off as too cutesy; I feel I am a bit too old* to wear them. Despite this, I just couldn't resist the phases of the moon print on the Killstar Lunar Skater Dress...I just LOVE anything space themed! The skater dress style is too short for me to wear strictly as a dress; I have made it work in my wardrobe by using it like a tunic to layer under cropped jackets and over leggings. I enjoy this sort of outfit for attending more casual events; the outfit on the right was worn to an outdoor food truck event that is held several times a year where I live. Due to its ability to be layered, I have been able to make many outfits with this dress since I bought it!

The leggings used for these outfits have also been worn a lot since I got them. I usually do not care for the trend of incorporating athletic/activewear into outfits but I could not resist these! A friend who wears that brand a lot pointed them out to me.
Do you ever wear skater dresses? What are your feelings on using activewear pieces in your daily outfits?
