<outfit post> pencil skirt challenge:

TGIF! which means this is day five of my pencil skirt challenge. in keeping with casual friday my outfit today is polished, but laid-back and will help power me through a day of meetings then off to dinner or drinks. maybe even a movie. is ‘gone girl’ out yet?

i love animal print and have known for years that it never goes out of style. but there seems to be a resurgence in popularity as of late, especially with leopard. and what could be a more perfect companion to a simple black skirt? the leopard shirt by Ann Taylor i chose for today’s look helps elevate staples like the black skirt i have worn all week. i moved away from a head-to-toe monochromatic scheme by adding a tan leather jacket, haircalf pumps, and a bold brass belt buckle which also pulls the effortless look together. remember, it’s friday and i want to keep the mood light. 

so what did you think about this week’s pencil skirt challenge? i hope you found some fresh ideas to use in your own wardrobe. go ahead, style it your way. that’s what fashion is all about. 

that’s a wrap for this week. have a great weekend!
