In these long winter months that seem to drag along before Spring, having utility in your closet couldn't be more important. While you see me wearing one specific outfit here on the blog, in real life I wear a lot of the same things over and over. And there is absolutely nothing wrong with that! In fact, when shopping I base the importance of a garment on how many times I can wear it and in how many different ways. That is why I am a huge fan of this pencil skirt
. I can wear it in so many different ways and still feel effortlessly chic.
This look features the peacock blue N.A. Martin skirt
with a cozy sweater and rider boots. This is my go-to look when it's really cold outside. I want to be comfortable, but still stylish.
This outfit is perfect for a day at the office or out for drinks with friends. I love wearing nude pumps because they create a seamless line, elongating your legs. This peacock blue with red is one of my favorite color combinations.
I love how easily this skirt can transform from casual to dressy, but always be chic. If I wanted to wear look #2 to work, then ditch the pumps for happy hour, I could throw on the boots from look #1 and be ready to go. It is that simple and what makes this skirt so wonderful.
How would you style a pencil skirt in two different ways?
