Style Basics: White Shirt + Red Pencil Skirt

You know those days when you just don’t feel like getting dressed?  Today was one of those for me.  So, I reached for a couple reliable basics—a white button-down shirt and a red pencil skirt.

I purchased the ponte knit, red pencil skirt recently in Marshalls for $29.99.  It shall replace my red pencil skirt from The Limited that’s starting to fall apart.  I always find ponte knit pencil skirts comfortable and accommodating (of my hips i.e.).  So, this skirt was a good find.

    OMG…Love the skirt. I think sometimes you and I are twins and were seperated at birth, because we have so much in common when it comes to being fabulous. I too purchased a red pencil skirt from my local thrift store. Have it styled to wear with my denim blouse and leopard belt.

    Classic and chic. You wear it very well! I also love how you've turned up the cuffs just once. A simple little thing that makes a big difference in looking updated. Nice.
