Courtly to Casual...
I'm a lover of all types of skirts, be it a swing skirt, a full skirt, a pleated skirt or a pencil skirt!
While it is so easy to create a fun, flirty look with a full skirt, a skater skirt or a pleated skirt, the pencil skirt is always a very strict, dignified, 'no-nonsense' kind of a skirt mainly used as a work wear staple.
Unfortunately, as much as I love wearing pencil skirts, I do not get enough opportunities to wear them, primarily because I do not work in a proper, 9-5, corporate environment.
Well, I make my pencil skirts work for casual, week end wear.
Simple, by pairing it with a cotton/chambray button down, a military jacket or a denim jacket like how I'm wearing it today. Add a pair of fun flats and a cross body and you are ready to rock the week end in style.
Takes the weight off a very prim and proper pencil skirt and makes it fun, casual wear worthy.
Transforms it from courtly to casual!
Tell me, have you ever worn pencil skirts as casual or week end wear?
