Last look for the pencil skirt

I was hesitant to do a straight forward outfit post today, since I usually let those just default to flickr, but I had to go to a work dinner and I haven't gotten home until just now (almost 10 pm!)

Knowing I wouldn't get home in time to catch any daylight for an outfit post, this photo was taken outside of my office, and you can see the wonderful drive thorough of the walgreens next door in the back ground. I hated to go back in after this, it was 80 degrees and just beautiful out!


I'm happy to have finally fisnhed one of my four items! I do love this skirt, but I'm a bit tired of it now.
I worry I wasn't diverse enough in my looks with it, but here are the other three to compare:

Aww - I like that picture- Walgreens drive through background or not.
I know what you mean about being kind of sick of the skirt. I am not sick of yours, I love the looks you came up with! But, I think I got kind of sick of my picks!

I think you wore that skirt and made it chic in all of those pictures, but just because I love florals the best was the second outfit =D

whatiwore said...

I'm getting tired of my picks too!

I love this outfit though, I think it's my favorite pencil skirt outfit!

Oh! I meant to comment about Lost as well- Yes about Desmond, I love the Desmond- Penny story. Seriously that episode where they are talking over the radio while on the ship, when they are finally "together" again- I cried and cried and cried-

Romany said...

Oooh you are sooo sweet girl! I wish I could give this back to you, but that would kind of go round in circles, eh? Haha. Thanks, sweetie, you're gorgeous!
And you look so adorable in that first pic - made me smile.

I really love that skirt, beige is such a great versatile colour. My favourite look is the last one but I am in love with those green tights in the first picture. I really would like a pair exactly like those.

Jessica said...

You look so great in that pencil skirt. I'm glad it made it into rotation for the challenge. You may not have too diverse, but you look classically beautiful in each outfit.

I really like that skirt - I think the third look from the top is my favorite; love it with red!

Robin said...

You're braver than I am! I get all kinds of insecure when I try to hang outside and take photos.

The second look was my favorite. I love how you made something that I consider to be corporate like a pencil skirt look casual. Also, coffee is a food group. Good call.
