Warm Weather Work Wear

Wow.  That title.  Helloooo, alliteration.  My fourth grade poetry teacher would be proud.

For the past couple of months, I've been dying for a white pencil skirt.  I'm not really sure why, I don't remember pinning an outfit with one or even seeing one in stores.  Which made my search particularly tricky.  Luckily JCrew Factory pulled through for me.  Confession: this is the first thing I've ever gotten from JCrew Factory.  Or JCrew.  Sorry for all of the jaws that now have to be picked up off of the floor.

  1. That cobalt is stunning on you with your red hair! I have to get a new white pencil skirt...mine is kinda see through!

  2. It is really surprising that you've never gotten from J Crew before, not because I'm that big of a fan, but more because their aesthetics seem to match up your style. If I had a J Crew where I live, I'd be there all the time scouring their sales. Full-price items are just too expensive for me.

    The skirt is gorgeous on you! I can see that going with a lot of your closet!

  3. I still haven't bought anything from J.Crew (gasp!) I went to the factory store recently but I think you have to go in with something in mind (like you did for this gorgeous skirt) or else the prices just still felt too high for me.

  4. I want one of their pencil skirts in every color, but my work dress code isn't that "dressy", so I can't bring myself to purchase one yet! Love this look

  5. I love this look, such a fun office look. The cobalt blue looks great on you!

  6. When I got my first big-girl job I immediately ran to J.Crew Factory and stocked up on appropriate work wear, and those were probably my first purchases from the store too :) Love love love this look, the white pencil skirt IS fab, and adore that top on you! What a color!

  7. I have that same skirt and wore it out last summer. It's seen better days to be honest!


  8. Very cute! I LOVE J.Crew Factory! That skirt looks great!

  9. My dress code is actually casual, but sometimes we have days when we have to dress up or I'll just decide I feel like dressing up so I always have to have some business-y clothes on hand.

  10. Yeah me too, that's why I waited until the skirt was double on sale and had free shipping ;)

  11. I probably would if the factory store was closer to me, instead I just go for Gap when I want the preppier vibe.
