I know I have said ad nauseam how ready I am for spring, but this week I decided I had to take advantage of one more opportunity to wear leather. I bought this skirt on sale at the end of January, so it didn’t see the full fall/winter season of wear. Does this mean that everyone saw me wearing it once per week for a month? Yep. Do I feel badly about it? Not even a little bit.

Welcome back guys! I hope you all had a great week. Today’s holiday outfit is inspired by those impromptu happy hours after work where you have to take your 9-5 outfit out into the real world. This skirt is the most festive pencil skirt possibly ever and there’s no reason for it to not make an appearance once per week until Christmas. Seriously guys this is not a drill. It adds a bit of holiday happiness, to your work day, but by swapping your blazer for a leather jacket at 5:01pm. all of a sudden you’re ready for some well deserved Christmas Cheer.

Despite being fashion’s favorite season, and indisputably the prettiest, fall always gives me a small case of the blues. While I love fall as much as the next person, it’s always sad to say goodbye to summer adventures, wearing skirts and dresses; especially knowing that the dreadful cold and snow of winter is just around the corner. One of my favorite coping methods last week was taking one of my favorite summer items (a skirt) and pairing it with my must have winter items (a sweater) to make a perfect fall ensemble.

My unintentional style theme for the month of September so far has been mixing and matching- starting with summer and fall trends and now into professional and casual wear. I love the contrast between the feminine lace of this long and conservative pencil skirt and the dark denim of a tied chambray shirt. I find below the knee skirts are often unexpected on early 20somethings, and I think the fun chambray keeps this outfit youthful and unpredictable.

As we’ve established, I am such a sucker for bright colors and bold patterns. Luckily, I know that every season (especially summer) I can count on J.Crew Factory to deliver on both. Almost all of my weekend outfits consist of patterned shorts in fun colors from there that are a perfect length and incredibly comfortable. So it should come as no surprise that I should find a perfect work appropriate skirt with the same enchanting qualities! This fun multicolored pencil skirt is really similar to this one I wore here in Newburyport. I went back and forth trying to decide which one I should buy, but ultimately I decided to go for both since they are both so perfect for completely different occasions (#noregrets). Even better news: they’re both currently over 50% off! This white top from Ann Taylor is sold out in most sizes, but I love their constant effort to keep work appropriate tops different and beautiful. The simple eyelet pattern is not too obvious but still adds an element of surprise from the traditional collared white shirt I would normally pair with this skirt.
