Do you ever have one of those days when you really want to wear a pencil skirt and nothing else will do? Even when you’ve already decided to spend the week styling Graphic Tees. On those days you create something slightly weird but rather fantastic. (But its okay, Kendi did it too!)
I’m a bit embarrassed by how much I’ve been wearing this Torrid pencil skirt lately. There is something about pencil skirts that is just really comforting to me. Everything is all locked in, fully covered and yet I feel extra classy and pretty in them, which was why I wanted to play with the juxtaposition of this Zombie Nouveau tee with the structured skirt. At first, I thought this outfit would be a little bit of a stunt. I figured someone would mention the fact that I was wearing a fancy skirt and a zombie shirt. But then I looked in the mirror and fell in love with this outfit. The polka-dot skirt already has a sense of whimsy so the zombie shirt is less of a surprise and the cardigan, which is also spotted, just completes the outfit.
Originally I had planned to wear a black blazer with this outfit, but I was too excited to wear this chartreuse cardigan, one of my recent purchases from a Banana Republic Factory Store. At first, my friend Jess and I could not decide if we loved it or hated it. Well, that is not totally true, I was in love right away, but when I held it up she made this face that said she thought it was hideous. But she has a great eye and suggested I try it with navy, and when I tried it on with this dark purple and navy top we both made goo-goo eyes and fell in love. Plus, it is a perfect zombie color!
What do you guys think? Do you mix causal and professional pieces?
