Pearl Polish

Top: Dizzy Lizzy, similar here from Charlotte Russe // Sweater: Banana Republic // Skirt: Greylin // Bag: Louis Vuitton // Heels: Vince Camuto, similar here // Bracelet: JCrew, similar here // Earring: Nadri // Sunglasses: Dior (my favorite pair…) // Nails: Essie Sole Mate

My go-to ensemble for work is a corporate-savvy combination of a pencil skirt, sweater and perfect pumps. But sometimes its fun to add in special details to add a more sartorial touch.  I love the yellow hue of this skirt and felt it went so perfectly paired with the different colors of brown in my purse, tortoise shell heels, and my hair (hey, hair is an accessory!). Playing off of the feminine shape of the pencil skirt, I brought a special touch to my collarbone with a pearl dotted collar to turn up the sweetness factor just a bit.  Browns, yellow and a hint of pearl may just be my new favorite color combination!

      Jordan–I completely agree with you on pencil skirts and great heels. Pencil skirts may perhaps be my favorite type of clothing….ever?!?!

    Polished for sure! I really like the color of the skirt and have been thinking about this color myself. The bag of course is classic fab and this is a great look for work! The details of the pearl collar finish it off. Lovely 🙂
