Work Style: Print top and red pencil skirt






Top: Kohls (old) // Skirt: Forever 21 (old, similar) // Shoes: Ralph Lauren via Marshall's // Bag: Ivanka Trump via Tj Maxx // Bracelet & Necklace: Stella & Dot // Sunglasses: Maui Jim

Happy Monday!
I love pencil skirts, but the fit is so important. Too tight, and it looks terrible and uncomfortable, and too loose, looks just as bad. I have been on the hunt for a few more, but I haven't had much luck lately. This is actually a skirt from Forever 21 and it's a couple years old. It's held it's shape and color!
And I've shown you 8 different ways to wear it here. It's so versatile, so I'll be doing a few more looks with this skirt soon.
I also stopped by J Crew this weekend, but did not buy anything. A few bloggers talked about this dress, and I wanted to see in person. Beautiful dress, but I could not think of a single place I could wear it too. If I had a wedding to attend, I would have bought it in a heart beat. I'm trying to make better buying decisions, so I sadly passed it up. It was originally $148, but at 50% off sale items, it's only $50 (in store only)!

Linking up with Funday Monday, Monday Bloom, And Random Wednesday.

  2. Hi. I'm from the linky but I'm also on the Fashion and Faith website. I love your outfit! I love how you carry the black and red so well, they go well with your hair and skin tone. I love how your top is peplum, I find peplums very forgiving! You looking great!

  3. Looking lovely Katherine, been thinking of you and your family, hope all is well. The last time I wore a pencil skirt was in my college days and the skirt I had was too tight that I actually don't think I wore it but for an hour lol I need to find some to fit my body shape better. Rachel xo
