I don't have those incredible legs of MaryK, nor do I have colourful pencil skirts or a legitimate "sassy sweatshirt" but I've been inspired by MaryK's use of her sweatshirt with pencil skirts and had to find a way to copy it with what I had in my closet.
Substituting the sweatshirt, I went with my Gap mesh sleeve grey pullover and paired it with a basic black pencil skirt with a front zipper. I like how the zipper helps to give some vertical-ness to the outfit. I chose sheer black hose and then went with my animal print pumps for footwear. Accessories are all shades of red - eyeglasses, quilted handbag and lipstick. Jewelry is a simple black/silver oversized watch and silver wedding band.
Although I like the outfit, I feel like it's missing some panache - probably should have gone with my cobalt pencil skirt but it's in the laundry pile. Oh well…might be cute to try with my animal print pencil skirt too with different footwear.
What do you think - does it work? As always, all comments/suggestions welcome.
