Casual Friday: Denim Pencil Skirt

by jennine on August 5, 2011

Sorry I’ve been a bit MIA lately… for those of you who’ve been reading for a while, you’ll know that this time of year, I’m usually knee deep in the IFB Conference planning. My outfits have been more and more casual, as the workdays increase. Which can be a good thing! Part of style is exercising how to dress for certain times in your life. How to be more casual, more effortless and still look alright. Ok, my hair might be a mess… but one of the things I’ve been loving are pencil skirts, and when I got the Current/Elliott Dorothy Pencil skirt, it quickly became a wardrobe staple. The button up front the soft, worn-in black denim. It’s probably the most comfortable skirt I own.

Yesterday, Debie talked about pops of red, I took this as a cue to dig out my favorite red tank top. There’s always a use for red tank tops, they do go with anything. Brightening up a sheer blouse, adding a “pop of color” to any neutral outfit. I’ve found my crew of red tanks have played an important role of my summer wardrobe!

Denim is a best friend in a girl’s wardrobe. Denim pants, skirts, shorts, or shirts really play well with pretty pieces to create a chic but casual look. =)
