Painted Roses and Live, Love, Life.

Last time I wore a Pencil Skirt with a Graphic Tee, the Outfit got a lot of positive feedback and it was one of my absolute Favorite Looks I have worn in 2013. If you haven't seen that Outfit, take a look - I am real proud of it. =) Today's Outfit is similar yet different, because it has a more Casual feel. The mesh Pencil Skirt brings a burst of Summer through those paint-like Roses and pops of Neon. While the T-Shirt is a Chocolate Brown which is a typical Fall Color. I love the beautiful message of "Live, Love, Life". I brought out the colors of the Outfit by sort of mixing+matching more Colors through my Necklaces (Burgundy & Green), my Earrings (Baby Blue), my Headband (Beige), my Bag (Yellow) & my Sandals (Metallic Brown). I guess my most Favorite types of Graphic Tees are the ones that have fun words, or meaningful/smart messages on them, like this one or the one I wore with the Red Pencil Skirt (linked above).

This color looks between a Dark Brown with a hint of Olive so I think it fits the "Carafe" Color of the Pantone-inspired Challenge so I will go ahead and link up with HEIDI of Literate and Stylish for her & MARISSA's Pantone-inspired Challenge this week. Thursday's color is Carafe. In case you were wondering I wore this Outfit for some quick shopping for Diapers & other baby necessities, at Wal Mart. What do you think of this Outfit? Do you think the Message Tee works with the Printed Skirt or is the Outfit too busy? Do you think the Colorful Accessories work? Also, stay tuned on Friday for my first Guest Post on a mini-series of Guest Posts that I will run for the next couple of weeks. Thank you for reading and following. =)

    1. Thank you for stopping by, too, Anna. Looking pulled together as a Mom might take more of an effort but it's even better, I think. =)

  4. This skirt is amazing! I love the graphic tee paired with a pencil skirt. It takes the stuffiness out of what is typically a "business" type piece.

    1. I wouldn't say this is exactly a business or office look but with a different shoe could work for a more laid back work environment, even better if you put a cardigan or blazer on top.

  6. I love dressing down pencil skirts! They tend to be so formal, but with fun colors, prints, or a more casual shirt they become much more casual (and versatile). :)
