summer skirts

As if you need more convincing (pencil skirt, classic jewelry, blazers), I am here to again show you how versatile closet staples can be. Two of my favorite trends right now are peplums and the color yellow, so this magazine article definitely caught my eye! Look at how the simple closet staple skirt is such a chameleon!
From work, weekend shopping, to going-out with the girls the basic skirt pulls you through!
(and look at that white blazer sneaking in there too!)

Some of my favorite pencil and flattering A-line skirts are popping up in eye-catching colors these days.
Here are a few of my favorites: 1 {purple} // 2 {red} // 3 {yellow} // 4 {pink} // 5 {gorgeous pattern}

  11. Love that yellow skirt and that peplum top is amazing. I need a peplum bustier in my life. ;0) Love the other ways they suggested. I would have never thought of rocking this color skirt in some of the ways they suggested. ;)

    Also, thanks for dropping by my blog, You Like It? I Made It!,
    and commenting on the pencil skirt I made. You definitely should dust off your machine and make this skirt. It's perfect for starting off if you are feeling a little rusty. Definitely check out the tutorial on Mimi G's blog (www.mimigstyle.com). So easy to follow along with. I really hope you whip out the sewing machine soon. Looking forward to seeing what you make. ;)
