..Blinding Pencil Skirts

 The deets: J.Crew blouse; J.Crew Factory skirt and belt; Gap tights; BR boots; (unknown necklace).

Meet my crazy bright yellow-green pencil skirt.  It's super loud and makes me feel more like myself around the office (as in..hey peeps check me and the little bit of sunshine I have trapped onto my booty to blind you through out the work day..muahahaha).  Thank you so  much for all your awesome tips & suggestions yesterday, they made me feel extra confident about my bright new purchase.  I was a tad unsure but almost all of your lovely comments mentioned incorporating one colorful item or accessory so I guess I'm on the right track.
 
Oh, and thank heavens for sock buns (seen below..please excuse the early morning squinty sour puss face)  they might be the best invention of all time. All. Time. Perfect for I'm too lazy to get out of bed and would rather hit the snooze button then have clean hair days didn't have time to wash my hair days! Tutorial to come soon.

  2. Love that skirt. I have a vintage yellow pencil skirt similar to that one and I love it! (don't really fit into it right now due to baby bump but hopefully one day I'll squeeze back into it)

  10. I have been looking for a yellow skirt and found one at Forever21. I haven't considered purchasing it at the moment but now I think I may. As for a bun I can never pull it off I think my head is shaped weird.

  13. I have a yellow pencil skirt as well. It pairs so well with leopard. I also have the J. Crew No. 2 Pencil Skirt in plum...and I am thinking about adding a blue one for the spring. I may be going overboard on the whole bright pencil skirt trend.

  21. Gorgeous yellow skirt paired with the fun leopard belt :) I have to learn how to do the sock bun. I don't have much time to do my hair before work so I usually just put some product in my natural waves, but sometimes it looks like a mess!

  28. I've never been able to pull of yellow, but it looks fabulous on you! And the skinny belt is perfect.

  29. if this is what you look like when you press the snooze button, you completely put me to shame! I am SO impressed...and I seriously LOVE that skirt. I wish my unruly curls would cooperate to do anything other than frizz ;) btw, I lived in Ballston a few years ago and loved it...I miss it so much! so so happy to have stumbled on your blog! yay for DC! xoxo {av}

  30. You are so lovely! I am digging this pencil skirt! I keep wishing I had a job that I could dress up for - sadly heels and cute clothes don't mix with preschoolers!

    Your sock bun looks perfect! I just cut my hair, so sadly I never mastered it - and now with my shorter locks I can't excuse myself from washing it, either. :( Haha!
