I need a skirt alternative to shorts / capri pants

I tend to live in my denim capri pants all summer, but when the temperature hits over 30 (as it did last week (NB I am not in the uk!)) I end up sweltering.

I'd like a skirt, I think:
- something not at all dressy
- preferably with a pattern on it as I have 2 dogs and plain fabrics tend to show every single bloody hair on them
- knee length or longer
- not tight or dead straight
- will be worn with spaghetti-strap tops, mainly in black (my standard summer uniform)

Does such a thing exist? I can't find anything!

How about these or similar?

Something from White Stuff.

Definitely White Stuff. Their reversible skirts are good value if that's your sort of thing. I have a couple for holidays but know lots of MN aren't keen.

Ah thank you, white stuff looks promising.
