Ruffle Pencil Skirt

Ruffle Pencil Skirt

Happy Hump Day! So, I had tweeted about this ruffle pencil skirt a few days ago. I still can’t believe I scored it for $22! I absolutely love the color and fit, and it’s great for work. The best part is that, much like this wrap dress, this ruffle pencil skirt can easily transition from the work day to happy hour. I’ll be honest, though – this skirt was a little tricky to style. Since it’s such a bright color and has a huge ruffle in the front, it had to be styled with minimal pieces. Ideally, I’d pair it with a black tank, but that’s not appropriate for work. Then I remember this lace sleeve top I had from years ago, that I hadn’t worn in a while, and it worked out perfectly with the ruffle pencil skirt! Also, when I came back from SF, I decided to throw out my pair of basic black pumps, since they were completely worn out. Since then, I had been on the hunt for a pair of basic black pumps, and I found these on major clearance! Personally, I love them, but I’m not sure if they can be used as a basic pair, due to the silver heel. What do you guys think?

By the way, I started a month-long, Hindu religious fast on Sunday. So, I can eat one full meal a day, and I have dinner. Other than that, throughout the day, I have fruits, veggies, nuts, and dairy. I’ve pretty much been having green juices and smoothies all day. Also, I have fresh fruit whenever I can. Fortunately, it’s watermelon season and I love, LOVE watermelon! I can’t have grains or beans except for the one meal. I’m hoping to cleanse/detox my system a bit by the end of the month. It’s not a hardcore cleanse, but I’m trying my best to eat as good as I can. I told my team at work to keep me super busy so my days go by faster!

Now that I think of it, I think this ruffle pencil skirt would also be perfect for weekend brunches, no? It’s also great to transition from Summer to Fall. I am so excited to wear this skirt far too often! Speaking of Fall, can you guys believe tomorrow’s the last day of July?? Time is flying by so quickly!

    I saw this skirt on Instagram and had to come over to see the full outfit. That skirt is so fun! I really like that you kept the rest of the outfit simple. I think those shoes could be your basic black pumps as the silver heel makes them a little more exciting!

      I think you’re right, Nicole! Those pumps are like business in the front, and party in the back. I’m in love with this skirt – I wanna wear it all the time! Lol

    Black with the bright fuchsia is so effective. Love the ruffles.
