What I wore

Pencil Me In; how I wore my jean pencil skirt

August 15, 2012

I have been spending a bunch of time at baby showers this spring and summer. Which is fun because I like babies and all, but it sometimes offers a bit of a conundrum as to what to wear.

You should look a little dressed up because it is a party after all, but it is still a casual affair that doesn’t require black tie or anything. We are just hanging in the basement, eating cake and opening presents.

I put together this look after stumbling on the blog Putting Me Together via Pinterest. She had a post about a flouncy boho type top and how she usually wore it untucked. She went onto say how different it looked tucked in, and why hadn’t she thought of this before? I ask myself why hadn’t I thought of this before, because when I read her post I thought “I have a top like that!”

And so a top that usually gets paired with skinny jeans or shorts and lived a brief life as a maternity top (it’s not one though) got a whole new look tucked into a denim pencil skirt.

Have you worn something a different way and it made you see it in a whole new light?
