Pencil Pusher

Fact: I should have named this blog “Balcony Girl” because I shoot so many of my posts there but in my defense, it’s hot out there. Like seriously can’t handle the heat sort of hot. I love Miami but good Lord, give us a little bit less humidity, please…I’m too high-maintenance to handle all this sweating ;)

Anyway, I digress. Back to the fashion aspect. I love pencil skirts, I’ve got a serious obsession with them. They are sophisticated, sexy, slightly retro and always chic. In my opinion, you can’t go wrong with a pencil skirt and stilettos. That will always be “in”. It’s such a perfect combination that it makes wearing a t-shirt feel glamorous.


I’m wearing:
“Famous” Mackenna Top (c/o Blush Boutique)
Theory Golda II pencil skirt
Merona blue crossbody bag from Target (similar color and styles here)
Swarovski acrylic bangle, fall 2013 collection available next month (c/o Swarovski)
Steve Madden Realove heels in patent (here in leather)

I didn’t list it above but in case you want to know, I’m wearing Chanel’s Rouge Allure in “Passion”.
I promise to venture out into the heat and do some location shoots in the next coming weeks…I’ll do it, just for you ;)

    I really think this look is perfect for work!

    I also like pencil skirts but because I don’t really wear heels I can’t really combine them properly because I’m more of a sneaker girl a long with wide shirts and stuff!

    Got a new post up and can’t wait to see your opinion!

    Happy Week!



    Getting my dress on yo!

    I too love a good pencil skirt and have just realized I don’t wear mone nearly often enough! You look fantastic in yours.

    Funny / interesting point about heat … Today we are scheduled to have the hottest day we’ve had all year, and we had a hot summer. There is some freak weather system going on causing this. And then next week it’s dropping right down to being cold enough to need a jacket!

    This look is perfect :) And it is just what I needed – an idea how to mix my favorite skirt and red lipstick and not look like an elderly lady ;) Thanks!

    I love this look! I’m a huge fan of pencil skirts and this one is super flattering on you. And the pop of blue in the clutch is perfect. So excited to find another blogger from a tropical place!
