I apologize for the lack of posting lately, but as most of you already know, it is back to school time! When I'm working in my classroom it's hard to find a good mix of fashionable yet functional. Between the warm/humid climate of a classroom and still keeping it professional, I've been raiding my closet for some "oldie's but goodies." It's here where I rediscovered my denim pencil skirt. I seem to always forget about this versatile piece. Not too stuffy, yet polished enough to dress up a casual outfit...so that's just what I did!
Paired with a spunky pink striped top, turquoise belt, and nude t-strap sandals this outfit is definitely work-worthy! I added the brown chain link necklace to add a tougher texture against the silky top. Don't forget my special favorites, librarian glasses, ...so appropriate *hehe*. I also like the idea of pairing different shades of blue with denim, like with the belt in this outfit. All rules are off in fashion lately, so I figure, why not!
Closet Tip:A denim pencil skirt is a great item to have, especially for work. It's an easy way to wear denim to work and still uphold a professional vibe. You could dress it up with a blouse, tucked in of course, sweater, or blazer and heels or dress it down with a t-shirt and a scarf and sandals. Either way, it's an item that should definitely be a part of your work wardrobe for all seasons!
(I found mine at J.Crew, but I know that Gap, Nordstrom, Ralph Lauren shops (Macy's), Victoria's Secret, LOFT, Anthropologie, and Old Navy all carry them.)
