Striped skirt, take two

I've told you about this coral-and-navy striped skirt my sister got me from Old Navy. Since it's quite striking I styled it with a simple pale yellow sheer top the first time. Here's attempt no. 2.
I know, I know -- I look odd here. That's what you get for shooting first thing in the AM without make-up! Will put my face on for the next pics, I promise!

Confession time again: Although I love snug pencil skirts for their proportion and schmexy-giving properties, my big concern with pencil skirts is the inevitable puson explosion. It's hard to choose sometimes -- go empire-waist + A-line to be comfy and let the tummy breathe, but look kind of blah; or wear these figure-highlighting skirts and deal with how to cover that jutting lower belly?

 My solution is a well-deployed vest. It keeps the figure hugging line going and covers the puson without adding unnecessary bulk. Now if only I can figure out how to commute without sweating buckets when layering like this, we'd be in business.

Wearing: Magarbo vest, tiangge top, Old Navy skirt and Australian flats.
