Nautical Blues and Boat Shoes.

Hello Ladies. Happy Thursday to you!! We are one day closer to the weekend. =)

Today's Outfit is also from the weekend (last Friday). Once again I reached for a Pencil Skirt and a Blouse. Back in my work days, my usual "uniform" was a Pencil Skirt (sometimes a Full Skirt) with a Pretty Blouse or Button-Down Shirt tucked in. Today's Skirt is a little shorter than a typical Pencil Skirt but it can work in more laid-back job places, especially in Outfits that sort of have a Casual vibe like I paired it today. I am glad to wear my New Pencil Skirt (that my closet was missing). This one has a Nautical Vibe because of the Gold Stud detail off each side, on the front. It is a Light Knit material and I can see it work year-around. The Button-down is like a Baby Blue/Periwinkle Color (looks more Lilac than Blue, at times) with White Pinstripes and the Cute little Ruffles around the High Collar. Adding to the Nautical aspect, I wore my Baby Pink Leather Boat Shoes (that look like Alligator Skin) and my New Gorgeous Elliot Lucca Bag which is Gold and picks up the pyramid studs of the Skirt. I just added some Navy Crystal Drop Earrings and I was done. How do you like this Outfit? Do you own a Navy Skirt? How have you worn it lately?
Long-Sleeve, Button-Down, Ruffled-Collar, Pinstripe White & Periwinkle Blouse: White House Black Market (similar 1), (similar 2), (soft dot option by WHBM).
Navy, Soft-Knit, Ribbed, Pencil Mini Skirt w/ Gold Pyramid Studs on the Front: A Local Boutique (New) (similar, ponte, on sale), (gorgeous mini w/ zipper on the front, on sale), (love this jeweled option, best deal).
Navy Crystal & Silver Rhinestone Beaded, Drop Earrings: Fred's Jewelry (similar, great deal), (similar, square navy w/ gold tone), (similar, circle navy w/ gold tone, love these).
Gold, Real Leather Hobo Bag w/ Quilted detail on the Front: Elliot Lucca (New) (very similar, great deal), (similar EL, white Summer option), (gorgeous MK option).

  4. I love the little gold spikes on the skirt, I have some simple gold spiked hoop earrings and a sheer tank that has gold spikes around the collar and sleeves that I love.. I usually don't wear all of them together, though as that'd be too much. I used to wear a lot of pencil skirts & blouses when I used to work, too! Fun outfit! Thanks for linking up with What Wives Wear!

  6. Loving all your nautical inspired outfits lately. You look great in a pencil skirt! You should totally wear them more often. I thought the same thing when you wore the purple one in our post this week.

  19. Thank you for your sweet comments/compliments. We are glad Max is doing better, thank you for the prayers. So sorry to read about Vivian not feeling well, poor little lady, will pray for her. I love the pencil skirt and shoes with the blouse hair, it's neat how the purse brings out the buttons and colors of the skirt. Happy Thursday! Rachel xo

  24. Loving the mix of super feminine (ruffles on the top) and masculine (studs on the skirt and boat shoes/loafers)! Plus, it's almost all blue, which is my favorite color!
