Malibu, CA

Before I say how much I love this skirt, l will just admit that pencil skirts used to be the bane of my existence. Constantly tugging and readjusting them as I walked, I used to think of them only as an office attire staple, kind of like a button-down top. Professional, stuffy, and something to wear to an interview, I definitely didn't ever think of them as being 'cool'. 

That said, after seeing this style season after season, I've decided to embrace it and find new, dare I say 'exciting' new ways to wear it. The high waist and tailored shape are truly figure-flattering and I love this one from Chicwish because the neutral plaid print looks great with sweaters, graphic tees, silky tanks and more! I can wear it with a blazer to the office then swap out the top for a comfy tee to meet friends for dinner. I can pretty much wear it EVERYWHERE. And while I never thought I'd say it, I totally have a newfound obsession with the pencil skirt.
