This skirt is another item that I’m pretty sure I own solely because I am a blogger. Before I started blogging, I read a lot of blogs and one thing that I noticed is that bloggers love two things: J Crew and pencil skirts. They seemed especially enamored of J Crew pencil skirts so, a couple of summers ago, in preparation of being a blogger, I went out and got me one:
And then I promptly never wore it. In part because of the whole “pencils-skirts-suck-for-bike-riding” thing. But in part because I don’t think it’s very flattering. In spite of the skirt’s ability to play nice with neon (no small feat), I just don’t love it. In fact, I feel like a floral box in it. I will admit that could be the top’s fault too though. I love the color of this silk blouse, but it is a bit boxy. Perhaps the skirt would do a bit better with a more fitted top.
So, I’m placing this skirt on the maybe list and will try it again with a fitted sweater. Although, as I write this I’m trying to remember… are you supposed to wear fitted with fitted? I guess I should know that rule, what with being a blogger and all, but I clearly don’t, so help a sistah out, if you will.
Thanks in advance for your help on how to deal with this floral box of a skirt and have a Happy Thursday, All!
