There is nothing I love more for work than a special blouse paired with a slim fitting pencil skirt. Particularly a skirt that isn’t too bold so as to take away from the delicate silk or pattern of my top. However, I am always envious of my stylish roommate’s selection of truly beautiful skirts, especially one in a gold-ish wool that she always looks perfect in. The fabric is what changes the skirt from just a boring one for work (of which I own many) to something she can wear to drinks, a Broadway show or just about anywhere. I recently saw this lace skirt at JCrew and was nervous that the lace might be cheap looking (something to always consider when buying a lace piece that isn’t super pricey) but when it arrived this week, I was dead wrong. This skirt fits well; it is slimming enough without being tight (that “pulling” look is not okay). The lace is not flimsy looking by any means and has a floral embroidery detail that is quite pretty. Today I’ve paired it with an ivory Kate Spade blouse from the fall and a bright blue cardigan with some simple jewelry. Nothing intricate but the skirt speaks for the details in my lack-of-print outfit.
