Today I decided to delve into the world of office fashion. Besides my fashion blog I have a full-time cooperate job, and Megan, a reader, recently emailed me asking me what I wear to work. My answer? Pencil skirts, and the good news is that they are super flattering on most body types! You just need to get the fit, style, material, and closure that best suits your body. However, I recommend that you always try on your pencil skirts in the store – because sizes do vary by fabric. Also, you may want to walk around in it to test how comfortable it is because let’s face it: The pencil skirt should most definitely be your most comfortable, go-to piece of office attire.
As always, thank you so much for stopping by & have a lovely day, dolls!

Katherine, I heart you! Thanks so much! Happy Monday!!!
Seriously…so stunning!!! Love this look!
Thanks, beauty! You made my day!! XO
I so agree! Finding the right pencil skirt for work is a must. The bend and snap test is a must as well. I have to be able to walk around and sit comfortably, also making sure that it’s not too tight. That’s always my problem with faux leather skirts, but I like how yours has just a strip down the sides. Absolutely darling! 🙂
Awww, thank you, my beautiful friend!! Totally swooned over your blog post today!!! XO
This is a completely perfect office look- and I adore the houndstooth blouse. There’s something so classic about houndstooth, especially with a pencil skirt~!
