Approximately a gazillion years ago (okay, it was actually 9 months) I pinned an outfit featuring a navy blazer, a polka dot blouse, and a pink skirt. At the time I had a pink skirt and a polka dot top. That was it. Then I when I finally got my navy blazer for my birthday in January it was too cold to wear the pink skirt. But not today! No, today I finally put the three of them together and I feel pretty awesome.

It’s like, I’m wearing a suit but it’s so much more fun. I’m all preppy up top but having a party on the bottom. I think this is what I love about bright skirts. They add life to an outfit that might otherwise be super traditional. I mean, there’s nothing wrong with traditional but every so often I look in the mirror and want something a little different.

Which is why I bought a pink pencil skirt. And it’s why I think everyone should have at least one bright skirt in their closet. For those days when you just want to wearing something fun but you still have to look professional. A structured bright skirt totally fits the bill.
