a perfect pencil skirt.

blouse (similar) // skirt // heels (similar budget friendly option)// necklace // watch



So I have been looking for the perfect pencil skirt for awhile now. I've owned more than a few that were either too short, too long, the waist was too big, or just didn't fit "right." However, at H&M last weekend, I found the one. That's right, the perfect pencil skirt is only $24.95!

Not only it it just the right length, but H&M sizes run small, so it fits where it should, right on my natural waist (I'm 5'2" and wearing a 4, which is a 0 at most other stores, btw). Fully lined, the fabric seems to be of decent quality (I find most of their office attire a pretty good quality), it also comes in grey, navy, and cream. H&M tends to run out of items quickly, so check it out while you still can!

xoxo,

  10. It is so hard to find a good fitting pencil skirt, especially when you are on the shorter end! I am 5'4 and so many of them cut me off at a weird place. This one looks great on you, and I love that blouse!

    1. Thanks Lauren...the blouse is actually more of a "radiant orchid" color in person. I got the idea after seeing a photo of Blake Lively wearing a purple dress with a turquoise necklace! :)
