I love pencil skirts, I have a large assortment in my closet. From basic navy and black to yellow lace, neon pink, polka dots, textured and stripes. For me they are feminine, practical and easy to wear. I usually wear them dressed up because my daily life is pretty casual. I don’t have an office job and am at home with four children so I have fun with pencil skirts – blouses, peplum, jewelry, chambray, tees. Anything goes for me. Because of my height (I’m six feet tall) they usually hit around my knee. I would love them to be longer but that is a rare find. My favourite pencil skirts are from J Crew because of their fabrication – thick weights and a classic cut that smooths out the silhouette. For this style challenge I opted to take the pencil skirt out for dinner or drinks with your significant other or a great group of girlfriends. I layered jewelled necklaces and chose a pencil skirt in a vibrant striped pattern. This skirt can easily be dressed down with a simple white tee or tank and a pair of sandals/flip flops in a fun metallic. Anyway you style it you’re ready for summer.

    Great outfit. Those shoes are awesome on you – they look like an extension of your leg because the color is so perfect for you. The pop of the color is great and I love that the peplum top really compliments your figure.
