Hello sweet gals! I’m so glad you dropped in today. I’m sharing a great golf outfit today, but even if you don’t play golf you can wear this sweet combo this spring and summer. They’re not just golf clothes; they’re great summer casual wear.
There was a time when I used to play golf a couple of times a week, once with a friend and then each Friday with James. Then I moved away from the friend. And after five back surgeries, my husband isn’t playing golf these days. So now my golf game is pretty much limited to when I visit my parents. Yep, my parents are in their mid 80s and still swinging their clubs!
I wish I could play more, and maybe one day I will again. But right now I’m content to pull out my clubs occasionally for a fun day of it here and there. What do you do for recreation? Do you play golf, tennis or another sport? Or maybe, like me, you enjoy hiking.
When my friend Kim and I used to play golf weekly, we insisted on dressing the part. Neither of us were great golfers, but we looked cute on the course! That’s kind of my philosophy for anything active I do. Whether I’m hiking the trails, swinging a club, going for a run or lifting weights, I prefer to wear clothing that makes me feel like “I’ve got game!” Whether I really do or not!
Talbots actually calls this skort an everyday yoga skort, but it’s perfectly suitable for the golf course. Know why? Because it has pockets! You’ve got to have pockets to carry your tees and maybe an extra ball.
This suitably thick but lightweight skort has very comfortable knit shorts built in. I’m wearing a small, but a medium would probably work fine for a more relaxed fit, too. And I like the adjustable cinched hem on the oh-so-soft henley tee. Both the skort and the tee also come in petite and plus sizes.
I used to wear sun visors when I played golf, but now I’m more prone to wear a baseball cap. I’m more sensitive to my scalp burning these days and want the extra sun protection. This sweet and simple cap is from Target and is available in several colors.
Of course, when I play golf I wear golf shoes. But before hitting the course and afterwards I like to wear something more breathable like my Ecco sandals. These fun sandals are so amazingly comfortable and refreshing after walking 18 holes! Eccos rarely go on sale, but occasionally you can get an incentive deal with a purchase. And I’ve found them to be worth the investment. I wear them so often during the summer.
Of course you also need a great pair of sunglasses and a tote bag when you’re heading out for a day of golf. My sunglasses are on the spendy side, but of course I bought them during the Michael Kors VIP sale. And my nylon double zipper bag is a save from Target.
No, you absolutely do not have to play golf to wear this colorful, fun combo. In fact, I’ll be wearing this skort and tee to run errands, hike and take evening walks. And I could even wear it to lunch or breakfast with a friend.
But then again, doesn’t this sweet outfit and that gorgeous view just make you want to pick up a club?

Blessed for My Day
I went through a season in my life when I clung so tightly to what I wanted that I forfeited what was really valuable. Can you relate? We think we know best for ourselves. We think we understand the value of things, opportunities, experiences and relationships. And because we assign too much value at times, we cling tightly to the gifts and turn our backs on the Giver.
Today if you realize that you are clinging tightly to some thing, someone or some experience or opportunity, open your grip a little. You’ll find that you can trust God to give you what is best and remove from you what is hindering you. And in the end, you’ll be happier and more satisfied.
Those who cling to worthless idols forfeit the grace that could be theirs. ~ Jonah 2:8
