Hi guys!
Yes, it's really me. I'm back. Yaay! So... a lot happened during my very infamous hiatus: I finally graduated uni, tried crochet braids, got engaged, and I'm turning 21 next week! Yay me. Okay, so I'm just kidding about the getting engaged part. Lol, sorry.

Nonetheless, I'm happy to be blogging again. I'm coming with a blog series showing you why you should rock pencil skirts more often and exactly how you can do that! And for added bonus, I'm making a video so you can actually see these outfits in motion.

Most times, we associate pencil skirts with just workplace outfits but throw them out for off-duty looks. We're not only going to discuss the popular jersey pencil skirts, but we'll also discuss pairing pencil skirts in unexpected and fun geometric cuts, colors, lengths and textures. I'm super stoked to show you guys what's in stock for you in the upcoming posts.

In this outfit, we're playing with a green monochrome color palette. Instead of wearing the same shade top to bottom, try pairing a lighter and darker shade of the same color. This instantly creates some interest and dimension to the outfit, thus making it less dull and plain.

Another trick to this outfit is the gold snaps on the side of the skirt. You guys have seen this pencil skirt in one of my previous posts. My other favorite thing about it, aside from the bright color, is the gold snaps on the side. These are perfect for that extra spice I'm talking about. You can tone embellishments like this down with neutrals for a daytime appropriate look, or highlight them with other metallic accessories for a night out! 

Also guys, get creative and try some DIYs! Take a trip to the dollar store or your local fabric store, purchase some bling you like, go home and create your very own piece however you like it! You can even try adding some tassels, fringe or feathers to the edges of your skirt, if you like. That's the fun part about DIYs: you truly get to create whatever you want! :)

Thanks for stopping by and I'll see you in my next post!




  1. Welcome back! And what a great way to get back into the blogging groove again, I'm really looking forward to this series. I love your use of colour in this and the texture of your top. Also your shoes are dope and your hair is stunning, I really need to try crochet braids simply for the sake of my poor hairline.
