Who Needs Office Appropriate

The pencil skirt is often seen 9 to 5pm in an office but add a high slit to it, and it goes from classic to subtly sexy. I have only worked one real “business” type job. You know, the one you have to actually get up and get “business casual.” It was my first job out of college and I remember being so excited to wake up and put real buisness clothes on. As a child (and adult) I love a good costume and that is how I approached this new adventure in my life. However, after a few months of waking up early, doing my make-up, hair, and stepping into the business suit, the novelty wore off. Nowadays the only pencil skirt you will catch me in, is the one with a high slit. The high slit makes it modern and sexy. Dress it up with a silk blouse and heels or throw on a t-shirt, tie it at the waist, and grab some sneakers. I have become a fan of the pencil skirt again, but only if I never have to wear that “office appropriate” kind.

  1. Okay, this color palette is my jam!
    That warm yellow with the sky blue is absolute perfection! And you know I love NOTHING more than a pencil skirt! From your style to your photography, I love it all, friend!


  2. LOVE THIS- I currently worked a horribly boring office job and in my first few months I cared about what I wore…now I wear the same J.Crew ankle pants and different button down or tees with sweaters everyday 🙂
