lemon zestone question frequently asked here at styleatacertainage is what a style essential is? of course, there are more than one, but a pencil skirt is definitely on the list. what a versatile piece of clothing that can be dressed up for the office with pumps and blouse. or as in today’s ootd, it can be dressed down with a tee and flats. the pencil skirt is also très flattering for most women if the hemline is right. proportion is always a key element to style so adjust the length according to your height. i’m all over the place with skirt/dress length, but a pencil skirt should hit your knee. i opted to don a denim shirt as an extra layer today and tossed on a multi-strand pearl necklace. a stack of silver bangles and i’m ready to dine with a new lunch buddy! we’re headed to the national, a favorite local restaurant run by acclaimed chef hugh acheson. let’s hope i’m not late as we squeezed in a photo shoot…
