year in review - outfit posts: striped pencil skirt - 11 ways

As part of my annual year end wrap up, I have gathered together some of my favorite & most worn pieces of clothing from 2015 plus a few favorites from the blogging archives. I think it's interesting & fun to to see all the different ways I wore the same thing. Hope you enjoy the look back too! 



This skirt was a impulse buy at Old Navy two years ago. I already had a navy polka-dot pencil skirt in my closet so I thought I had my "navy patterned pencil skirt" category covered. But I randomly gabbed it to try on and ended up loving it. Unlike my structured navy pencil skirt - this skirt is soft and stretchy. It's basically like wearing a tube sock. A very cute & flattering tube sock. Because of the soft stretchy fabric it seems a lot more casual to me then my other work pencil skirt. I usually think of pencil skirts as exclusively work-wear so I think the real bonus of this purchase was adding a casual pencil skirt option to my closet. (It made my favorites list last year too!)

  1. I have a very similar skirt that I got at Banana about four or five years ago. I love it but tend to wear it always with the same top. I'll have to get more creative! I love all your different looks!

  2. I bought the navy and white striped skirt you linked to at Kohl's plus a solid black one. I already got them in the mail. I wore the black one to work today and loved it so much! I may go back to Kohl's and snag the grey and white one... Thank you so much for the outfit ideas with the skirt and for the links.

  3. Love this!! So helpful to see it multiple ways. I've been looking for a similar skirt and found a great one at Nordstrom (and its on sale!) in a flattering midi length with a side zipper detail.
