No. 2 pencil skirt

For my big, big day of presentations and conversations, I had to go with J. Crew's No. 2 pencil skirt.

How do you not feel professional in a pencil skirt and crisp white shirt? I even got a compliment from one of the toughest people I work with--the color of the skirt won him over.
Yellow satchel - Kate Spade
It was a relief when the day was through, mainly because the day felt like a success. A couple of coworkers and I changed once the day and evening were through (it was freezing!) and trotted on down to Milk Bar. I bought some cookies and truffles to bring home to Husband, and as a treat for myself, had a cereal milk soft serve.
We walked back in the cold, eating cold treats. Not too bright, but yummy!
The weather really had me thinking that fall's arrived. I can't wait to pair this skirt with bright sweaters and comfy boots.


  1. you look sensational in that no. 2 pencil skirt!

    it totally caught my eye as i was scrolling thru my reader.

    bravo for a successful day!

  2. Thanks so much, kimchi girl! I love this skirt! I wish I could buy it in all of the colors it comes in. Have you seen the orange one? Gorgeous!

  3. You look gorgeous in this, so grown up and professional with some sassy class!

  4. Thanks--sometimes I love looking "grown up and professional". It feels like I'm playing dress-up.
