The thing about pencil skirts is they're so versatile, have the perfect fit and can be worn all year round. However, they have been stuck in the 'work wear appropriate' stereotype for as long as I can remember. There are ladies on screen who have pulled off the work look so well and have given us major envy too (think Anne Hathaway and Sandra Bullock). They do make for a demure work outfit but there's something about wearing a pencil skirt casually, with a fun print or a slouchy tshirt and you can still make it work. Mine is a tad more toned down than some crazy prints that I see. This one's simple with black hearts on a white skirt and has a contrasting black waist band which really makes me look slimmer. Paired with this cropped blue tshirt (that I also styled with my Gingham Midi Skirt last month) really gives it the pop of colour it needs. My Topshop Freya Shoes tie up the casual theme pretty well and I love how comfortable they are to walk in, even in the middle of the day when the sun's out in it's full glory. It's a shame I don't own a lot of pencil skirts but I'm on it ..come autumn/winter!
Also, this is slightly off topic but as I was sitting here editing this post, I watched Zoella's new range video and I'm so excited that its coming out only days before my birthday. I don't really buy her products religiously so I have nothing to compare to but this range seems to be really exciting and the prettiest so far.

  9. Everyone who knows me way too well knows that I am obsessed with everything heart-print <3
    Absolutely loved this look, lovely. That cobalt/royal blue colour is stunning on you, btw. The length of the skirt is perfect. I don't wear minis so knee-length / midi skirts are up my street :)

  10. Pencil skirts are always a good staple, and I adore this one! The way you've styled it is so cute. Also, I've never even thought about purchasing a Zoella product, but I am completely on board with the Christmas range. You should treat yourself for your birthday!
