A pencil skirt is the best way to add easy polish to your everyday looks without appearing too overdone or stuffy. Looking for a piece that will change your style game for good? Look no further.
A bold graphic tee makes this outfit extra modern. With its eye-catching pattern and basic color scheme, this super versatile top can easily be dressed up or down. I prefer a happy mixture of both when it comes to my daily style :)
A no-fuss pencil skirt is one of those basic pieces that no closet should be without. They literally can be worn with anything (as demonstrated here) and contrary to popular belief, they are in no way limited to an office environment. Oversized sweaters, crop tops, blouses, or button-ups - you name it and a pencil skirt will flatter it.
These Kendra Scott earrings are so unique! You know how spilled oil appears rainbow and displays different colors depending on your vantage point? That's exactly what these earrings are like in person. They shine differently depending on how you look at them. So neat!
These are my easy slip-on-and-go sneakers. When I purchased them last fall I considered getting black or white, but then I thought, nah! Life is too short for boring shoes and this green is too fun to pass up.
The extra special thing about this vintage Tiffany & Co. necklace is that it's unisex! The laid-back yet luxe vibe compliments the uptown, downtown feel I've got going on here.
Your pencil skirt can be the hero piece in your wardrobe. Let it work double duty and wear yours casually, formally, sporty, or a mix of all three like me! It's all about getting a bit creative and thinking outside the box.

I for one cannot think of any top that doesn't go with a pencil skirt. Truly. Between my friends, roommates, and the clients I see at Ann Taylor, I get asked the question, "What can I wear this with?" a lot. The beauty of owning a pencil skirt is that the answer is "Anything!" You don't have to be a seasoned and/or exploratory style enthusiast to have fun with this versatile piece.
The girls with me in that last photo are friends of mine from middle school and high school. While my dad and I were taking photos, they just happened to pass by. It was a fun surprise because I hadn't seen one of them since high school graduation! There's nothing like spontaneously catching up with old friends, am I right?
