Summer Style: The Magic Pencil Skirt

Thanks to everyone who joined us last week for Summer Style!  It's simple - choose something from each column above, put together an outfit, and share it with The Blended Blog on IG or through our weekly Wednesday link ups.

Today I have a fashion confession.  Until recently, I had never owned a pencil skirt.  Not sure how that's possible, but I'll blame it on 21 years of motherhood, because nobody wants to chase after a toddler in a pencil skirt.

And then I found this magical one by Renee C.  It's a spandex/cotton blend, and holds things in just the right place.  As soon as I put it on I looked ten pounds thinner.  Which is definitely magic.

It also has a fun print, and goes with pretty much everything.  I paired it with a Loft mixed media tank and a turquoise statement necklace.  It's the perfect outfit for almost anything, except maybe chasing toddlers around.

And in the spirit of the "summer of the dress"....

  8. Welcome to pencil skirts. You wore it very well. :)

  9. If I could wear a pencil skirt and look half as great as you do, I would be in it all the time. I need to investigate this magical skirt and its weight loss illusion. You look lovely in both outfits. Hope you are feeling a little less sad everyday.

  10. I just brought a denim penicl skirt this week and I simply love it! I love how you styled your skirt. I also love your second look!

  11. I don't wear pencil skirts. Not flattering on my body type. I prefer A line skirts. You look great in that one!

  12. That does sound magical! I don't wear pencil skirts at all. They just don't work on my body it seems.
