I used to think I was a big pencil skirt girl. Not that I don’t like them now, but I don’t quite love them as much as I thought I did. I probably have more than 5 in my closet right now that don’t get worn at all. I wear one faux leather midi length pencil skirt, and that one I do truly adore. Maybe I don’t like them as much anymore because they are out of style, maybe because they don’t quite fit right, or maybe because let’s be real – you cannot eat in those and still look good. Just speaking truths you guys. I’ve had one mini skirt for several years now and every time I wear it I’m like “hell yesss this is my jam!” So I’ve been on the hunt. I came across this army green one on Chicwish and was smitten. I love the minimalist design and the neutral color. It keeps it from being too night-time only, which I like. I am obsessed with button downs and thought this multi-stripe jam from J. Crew was the perfect perfectly un-done top to go with the skirt. And because I’m tall and don’t want to hooch it up in the daytime, I opted for my new flat mules in a blush color. This outfit will definitely be on repeat. #sorrynotsorry
PS half tuck is mandatory. Always.
