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?
