Rocking the Pencil Skirt


 

I love a good pencil skirt.  Every time I wear a pencil skirt, I feel like a powerful, intelligent, witty, sexy woman.  When I am wearing a pencil skirt and blouse, I feel like I am channeling  my inner Jessica, Donna and Rachel from Suits at the same time.  A powerful combination. 

 

  





I usually don't spend a ton of money on clothing but a solid, black, pencil skirt never goes out of style so it's worth the investment to get one that fits you super well.  I generally prefer a high-waist pencil skirt so I can tuck my blouse in, but I know that not everyone is comfortable having their belly so exposed and that's a personal preference (disclaimer, I also have those days and there is not way I'd be caught tucking my skirt in and will likely be wearing a flowy tunic to hide the bloating). If you prefect to wear a top that isn't tucked in, I would stray away from super long or flowy tops.  Keep the top so it's hits you at the hip and helps define your shape.  Show off your curves ladies and be proud!   Either way, a nice structured pencil skirt always looks polished and feminine for any occasion and it's such an easy last minute look. 

 

Now I want to acknowledge and celebrate a blogging friend Ada from Elegance and Mommyhood on her birthday.  Happy birthday girl!   Ada has supported me and featured me on her blog a few times over the last couple of years.  She loves to play with clothes, colors and textures and brings in to life every week on Thursday over at her blog.  Hope over to the blog to see what she is wearing and what many other ladies, across the ages and the world, are wearing. 

 

A Message from Ada: 

"Every year that I have been blogging, since I became a mom, I thought it would be fun to have a Blog Birthday Party on my blog, including other fashionistas and blogging friends. It started in 2013 and this is the 6th year of this fun birthday tradition. When I first started it in 2013 as a beginner, I invited my closest 5-6 blogging buddies who came to visit, read and comment my blog on a daily basis. Over the last 3 years this fun party has grown and it has become a two-day celebration. This year I am joined by another 20 fashionistas who I am lucky to call my friends and who are all super stylish to boots. A lot of these ladies have been celebrating my birthday with me on the blog other years too and I am very glad and flattered to see them return. Thank you beauties for making this tradition super fun, joyful and fashionable once again! Cheers with a Pinot Noir! Here is to another year of getting older and hopefully wiser!!"


Onto the Link-Up Birthday Party!

    1. Right?!? You don't need a bunch, it can become trendy with some great shoes, jewelery or a top in an "it" color. Thanks for stopping by.

  6. Bojana, like you I love a good pencil skirt. It is my favorite style of a skirt, the most flattering one and lucky for me I can pull them off. And you do too - 100%. I have never watched "Suits" but girl you look just as chic, elegant, sophisticated, dressy and classy as they all do. Love the fun elements you added because your blouse is sexy in the most demure way and those strappy black pumps are super fun! You are a fabulous working mother and any office would feel flattered to have you!

    Also thank you so much for the sweet words you wrote dear Bo, of course I will always support you. Thank you so very much for taking part in my annual blog birthday party. I loved having you. Thanks again and if you didn't read my post yet (I also wrote a little something about each blogger participating) please read it below:
