The Pencil Skirt
When pencil skirts started getting popular, I swore I could never pull one off. The idea of putting a completely form fitting skirt on my body was terrifying. In my mind, the only people who could wear them were stick thin and had no curves. I was totally wrong right? As I flip through magazines, and watch tv, the women who wear these type of skirts are full of curves and they look incredible. I am my own worst critic, and it has taken me awhile to feel comfortable in such a form fitting skirt, but now I feel like I pull it off pretty well (seriously you guys, barre classes have done wonders for my butt! I couldn't have pulled this off last summer) This brand/style is my favorite and I have three of them because I love them so much. They are soft, stretchy, and come in such fun prints! I love the yoga waistband because I can change how I wear it on my waist, depending on what shirt I want to wear with it. I buy them from a friend of mine (along with the maxi skirt I posted about here, the leggings in this post here, and many other dresses, tops, and skirts that I haven't gotten my hands on yet!), and I couldn't love this stuff more. She has a website here, but she also posts photos of her current in stock inventory on her Facebook page and will ship to you. I feel like I buy something from her every time she gets a new batch of inventory in.
I love the bright floral print on this skirt. I also have one that is black/white polka dots, and one that is leopard print, but this floral is so great for summer. I am a big fan of basic, fitted tanks, and I love the blue one I am wearing. I tucked it in to this skirt, but if I'm being more casual, I'll wear it untucked and wear flip flops or a flat sandal. My shoes I bought last summer, but there are lots of similar options out this year.
