Even though summer doesn’t technically end until September 22nd, the last week of August always feels like the real end of summer. And since I purchased this floral pencil skirt toward the end of the summer season I wanted to get in at least one wear before I felt like I was wearing flowers in a sea of snow.

Although, to be honest, I kind of like that image. So maybe I’ll just pair this skirt with a sweater and tights and keep on wearing it all year round!

When I took this skirt out of the package my husband looked at it and said, “That doesn’t look like you.” Well, honey, florals were trendy this year. And since I wanted to break out of the solid or neutral colored pencil skirt rut I’ve been in I thought this was the perfect antidote. Plus, it was paid for entirely with Poshmark credit so it’s basically free!

Which means my trendy floral pencil skirt and I are going to enjoy each other for as long as it lasts.
