Pencil skirt – boring or exciting?

Pencil skirt – boring or exciting?

A simple checkered pencil skirt is what I have always loved. I love pencil skirts anyway, wore them a lot in my twentees. Never understood why ,,they,, name it the secretary look! Guess ,,they,, don’t understand style! Lol! 

When I bought the chinos , I saw this skirt and new it had my name on it.  It’s a simple and cheap pencil skirt, but nothing wrong with that sometimes. And the pencil skirts at h&m are often surprisingly good quality.

Pencil skirts are my ,, always good,, items

I recently read a blog, unfortunately do not remember anymore who wrote it, in which it was written that it is useful if you know which style you like best. So that if you get up in the morning and have no idea what you want to wear, you can always wear that style because that’s always good. I do not know how it is with you but I sometimes have those days ….. Or sometimes when you go to a party or something. You are ready to dress up and you know exactly what you wanted to wear. And then you have it on and you don’t feel it at all in that outfit! Then you can change clothes three times and still you’re not satisfied.

Simple black top, black boots and any kind of pencil skirt

The style that suits me best, I think, is a simple black top, a nice pencil skirt and black boots. I always feel very comfortable with that. That is certainly not my signature style, because I don’t do signature style. I wear every day what I want to wear that day. But for those moments when you are totally uninspired, or an outfit that you had in your mind is very disappointing, it is useful to know what style you can wear in an emergency.

I thought it was a very good tip because I  had a birthday party a few weeks ago to go to, and the outfit that I wanted to wear did not feel good at all. I got really grumpy, changed clothes up to three times and finally I wore something that did not make me happy either. If only I had known this story because then I would have simply put on a pencil skirt!

How am I wearing this checkered pencil skirt

Well with a very simple knitted black top. My ,,new,, pre loved military look jacket that I also wore on my tunic, with the leggings that are in the bin! My favorite black leather boots and a lovely necklace with birds sitting on a wire. The necklace reminds me so much of the Hitchcock movie The Birds. I wear my transparent belt and the pre loved ring from Lewes.houndstooth ponchocheckered pencil skirt outfitme in my military look black jacketpencil skirt and black leather bootsfashionblogger's outfitnecklace with birds on a wirecheckered skirt with black jacket and black boots

    Well this is anything but boring. Your styling is absolutely excellent. I love your military style jacket and that sweet necklace with the birds is the perfect accessory. It is clear that the pencil skirt is your hero wardrobe staple.

    Hey Nancy. Great look. I love pencil skirts a lot too, just hardly ever wear them, since I do not fancy cycling in them uphill to school. I agree with you that you can style them anyway, from very classy to very modern and hip. I loved reading about the “always good” item in your wardrobe. Mine are dresses. Depending on the season and my mood I have a few that I wear for almost any occasion (styled differently for a school day or a party of course). Have a great Tuesday! Love, Lieske

    You know, I’m a little envious of this look, Nancy. I was wondering why my pencil skirts felt uninspired lately and I think it’s because I need to add a few midis. The pre-loved jacket was an amazing find (I need to look for one, now!). Thanks for the inspiration dear lady, I’ll give you a should out when I copy this look!

    I love a pencil skirt look but, having an office job (I’m not exactly a secretary but still) I find them too restrictive for sitting on my office chair all day 🙂 But I guess that’s what secretaries wore at one point … Your outfit is chic and understated. Simple but effective. I’m loving your transparent belt, how clever that is. And your birds necklace is so sweet. Surely those birds look far too docile for Hitchcock’s movie? xxx

    I am a big fan of pencil skirts – I always have a bunch of them in different fabrics, colours and prints in my wardrobe. They are a great “go-to” item, as you say! This is a fabulous look!

    Although I don’t wear pencil skirts often as I look too thin in them, I wouldn’t call your pencil skirt boring at all nancy! I love the way you style yours and it fits you beautifully.

    I just love the midi length of this pencil skirt and I think that def. makes it not boring at all! And that fun jacket with the buttons is the perfect addition!

    You are such a natural in front of the camera!! The camera loves you and you seem to love it back. I never know where to look, how to stand, what to do with my hands. Please do a post for those of us who need tips on being a graceful and poised as you.

    I like pencil skirts but they don’t like me! My hips get in the way. And I feel that I can’t sit in them very well and have to kind of prop myself up rather than sitting when I have one on. Love your outfit! The pattern mixing. The different wraps or jackets and that darling necklace with the birds. A+

      Oh I am not a natural at all Leslie! I feel weird most of the time, and this is all posing in my garden. I don’t dare to in public! But …..you set me thinking…..who knows! Thank you very much dear Leslie!
