Pencil Skirts Galore!

As a young professional, I find myself struggling with the want to dress my age, but still be taken seriously in my fashion choices. Since it only takes 7 seconds to make a first impression, I want to make sure that I am leaving a positive one when I dress for work, meetings and/or interviews. My secret to looking professional at 25? Pencil Skirts! I have about 12 in my closet currently, and you can bet that when I hit the outlets or a good sale at the mall, I will leave with a new pencil skirt to add to my collection. I love how easy pencil skirts turn a drab outfit into one that is polished and classy. Here are a few examples:

I love that by tucking in comfortable tee or button down shirt, I can have a comfortable look that’s flattering too! Throw on a skinny belt and a statement necklace and you’ve got a full blown outfit!

Even when I’m not a work, I love the look for special occasion events! I sported the look for both my wedding shower last year (right) and my sister’s this year (left), as well!
