When I was in my 20s and worked in an office, a favorite part of the corporate world was getting dressed. (And surprisingly the consistent schedules. It’s funny the things you don’t think you’ll miss but do.)  It was a maze of trying to figure out how to keep (or rather find) my personal style while navigating what was office-appropriate. And while some days it was a toss up of whatever I could find, I found that the better I dressed, the harder I worked. I especially knew that if there was a meeting that I needed to present at or attend, even if it was just a casual one, that dressing up a bit more would help me in my presentation. Even in casual environments of the office, I tried to put my best foot forward with personal style. I still live by this mantra: dress better than expected. I would rather be a bit overdressed than underdressed; it’s a comfort zone I’ve become accustom to. I used to feel uncomfortable being over dressed, but now I like feeling pulled together no matter where I am or who I’m surrounded by.

Pencil skirts always make me nostalgic for my office days. Although I’ve been my own boss for over 6 years now, I enjoyed working in an office / corporate environment. When I have meetings to go to or an event, I never mind pulling out my pencil skirt trick. It’s an instant classic — not too much, but just the right amount of appropriate. I like the take on this Cupcakes and Cashmere one with the asymmetrical hem, it makes me feel like I can take it from meeting to an edgier look. It’s hard to feel edgy with tweed on. Tweed is like the ultimate edge killer, in the most lady like of way, of course. It’s hard to live your life on the edge in a tweed jacket.

    I was just telling my husband the same thing the other day – i used to stress (and some days even hate) over what to wear to my office manager job. Last year I changed to a different field where I don’t dress up for work any longer, and now I miss it!

  18. I adore that pencil skirt and think that the slit is so different, which is what makes me love it. Love the color too, usually pencil skirts come in black. Very nice!

  21. I love the way this skirt is fitted on you. It’s elongating and the slit really gives a bit of edge and sexiness 🙂

    Secondly, I relate to this post quite a bit – I’ve come to love dressing up each morning and figuring my way around my style.
    Thirdly, that bag, hot damn!
