Yes, it’s Friday and yes, I could be wearing jeans. But I’m not. Instead I decided to break out my sequined pencil skirt. Why? Well, I have a luncheon to attend at the Chicago Cultural Center for my job’s Distinguished Service Awards. At first I was super excited thinking that I’m getting some kind of awesome recognition. Turns out it’s just because I’ve been at my job 5 years. Still, it’s an excuse to wear something a little out of the box, don’t you think?

Plus, this afternoon Kim and I are going to trapeze class together! It will be her first time and I’m so excited to share my new-found trapeze love with a friend. That calls for a celebration in my book!

Pairing the fancy sequined skirt with a neutral colored cardigan and nude heels helps keep it from being too bling-y or overwhelming. Just like the last time I wore it, I wanted it to be part of the outfit, not an in-your-face statement piece.

Linking up with AJ for Friday Favorites since if you click the link in the post you can see another way I’ve worn this skirt!

    I love this! You’re still all-business on top, and then party in your skirt – so a sartorial mullet, but in a good way 🙂 I really like how you’ve toned the sequins down for work.

    Have fun at your luncheon! It sounds better than the certificate I got through interoffice mail for my 5 year anniversary 🙂

      I will say, the place I work does know how to do it up for events! In fact, I’m actually on vacation for our annual all-company “picnic” and I’m really bummed that I’m missing it!

    Love this outfit! Have fun at the luncheon! Service awards are a big deal at my office. Some people are there 35+ years!

      This skirt was one of those things I asked for for Christmas because I knew I’d never buy it for myself. Such a fun, but not totally practical, piece.

    I am obsessed with this pencil skirt. It is amazing! I love how fun, yet subtle it is! Stopping by from Work Your Wardrobe!

    I love how you style sequences! (That was on purpose, I swear.) Hah, that aside, you do such a delightful job of making sequins look so fun and appropriate, I never get a “new years” only vibe from you outfits. (Sequins are really hard to break out of the festive mode!)

    Trapeze class sounds like so much fun!
