Low key pencil skirt

I was so happy when I got these stretchy pencil skirts from Forever 21 a while back, as they're versatile and a great addition to any wardrobe. The first instinct to pencil skirts is to up the vavoom, figure-hugging factor; but I decided to go the other way and be all Low-Key Lyesmith about it.

I took a page from my friend Jen from Style in Real Life (excellent blog!) and paired the pencil skirt with a casual, loose top.

(You've seen this lace top several times and I just love it. Thrifted from Magarbo, it's got a Japanese label and just has this lovely organic pattern and loose, square cut that I am so addicted to. Recently I got a slouchy ikat Gap shirt from my mom that may just give this old staple a rest.)

But wait, there's more!

Finished the look with my recently resoled nude Forever 21 brogues.

If there's one thing I wish I did, it's to pile on more accessories. Several necklaces and a party of bracelets would've pushed this look to 11! #regrets

The shoes and the skirt are an unusual combination, but you really pull it off quite well. Great overall look.
