Styling a Pencil Skirt With Booties

Hey hey it’s Friday girls and the weekend is about to commence! Little update on my attic organization…well, it’s still “a work in progess”. I have told my crew if things don’t get moved out of the garage, I would be trying out that new TAKL app, I even downloaded it – so I’m serious! Has anyone used that app and if so, did it work out well for you?

The Outfit

I have always been a big fan of pencil skirts and if they are stretchy or Ponte material, then they get 5 stars from me. This Vince Camuto Ponte Skirt is on sale right now and fits perfect! I am wearing my normal size (Medium), I love this because it’s no zippers, just pull-on and we all know I LOVE anything pull-on! Plus, I have a really cute outfit coming in Monday’s post using this skirt as 1 look. Make sure you check your emails Monday, I’m styling the CUTEST sweater 3 ways and it is SOOOO on TREND! 3 Outfits, From Casual to Workwear – they are SUPER cute!

I had this outfit picked out for church Sunday, so you girls are getting a sneak peek first. I recently ordered this striped cardigan from The Pink Lily Boutique and I loved it so much, I gave the long duster to Raegan that I styled in this post. For reference, I am wearing a Medium and have plenty of room. This would also look great with a denim shirt underneath with a cute colored pair of jeans. and leopard flats!

The red sleeveless tank it a simple sleeveless tee, I wanted a pop of color and this worked out great. See a similar one here.

This is a perfect cardigan to throw on for any occasion, with jeans for a casual look, Camo pants for an edgy look, or use it to amp up your workwear outfits. Oh…and church outfits, let’s not forget that! I love dressing up for church, I tell Barry I’m picking my outfit out to go visit the Lord’s house and I want to go looking nice. He just rolls his eyes LOL!

The necklace I am wearing is from Amazon, I was trying new pieces out since Brooklyn keeps hiding my jewelry and although this is not real – it is a really cute piece to wear throughout the week. I am also linking in the Shop The Post my leopard printed earrings I have been wearing, I was very pleased with these and the good thing is you get 4 pairs! See them here.

The purse I am carrying is from Burke’s Outlet, they did not have a black one online, but they do have a bone-colored one here. I have linked similar ones below. Everyone needs a black satchel in your wardrobe – its a classic accessory that you will need at some point in time.

I need to explain this picture below…LOL! My husband has been at a conference this week and I haven’t had anyone to take my pictures. As I was taking these pictures…guess who came home early? Yep, the ole boy caught me in our front yard snapping away, so I had to act like I was excited to see him HAHA! Seriously though – I cannot sleep without him in the bed – my sleep is very dependent on his body weighing down his side of the bed. Any other wives like that?

My booties have been on the blog a lot here lately, these are older, but I have linked similar ones below. Target has some that are almost identical here.

Victoria Emerson BOGO FREE

I am wearing the Faro Boho Cuff by Victoria Emerson, these cuffs are so convenient when you aren’t sure about stacking and it’s one piece! Can’t beat that! VE is having a sale for the holiday and it’s BOGO FREE!! Shop the Sale HERE. The black braided bracelet can be see here.

Little Black Dress from Pink Lily Boutique

I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to show you the cutest and most perfect little black dress I know a lot of you ladies will LOVE! It has a scalloped hemline in the front and ruching on the sides to give you a snug fit. I personally like to hide some of those “curves”, (I call them lumps or bulges lol), so I LOVE a cardigan to cover the things I don’t want to be seen. See the dress here. Keep in mind, I am 5’7″ and this hits about 2 inches above my knee. (Full disclosure: I was walking when this picture was taken)

    Happy Friday afternoon….I love pencil skirts and love wearing them in the winter with tights and boots(not booties) to cover my legs. The longer cardigan is really cute with it, something new I will have to try. I bet Reagan was delighted to receive the longer cardigan as a hand-me-down :). And the funny photos are FUN!!!! I have not heard of the TAKL app so I’m not help there but I hope the threat helps in getting the garage cleaned…LOL. Have fun with Brooklyn Sunday…lucky grandma ! (By the way…it’s super windy and a very cold 35 deg. here today) I am hoping for an Indian summer yet !

      It’s already 35 there?? Oh my gosh!! Wow!! It is 80 here today. Our Fall is weird-we have cool weather then it’s hot like summer during the day. Then all of a sudden it’s 32 every day! Lol
