Styled by 5: Agnes and Dora Pencil Skirt

10.08.2015

It is the second Thursday of October - which means it is time for the next round of Styled by 5. It has been fun planning out how to style a specific item to match my style and then seeing how the other women styled it as well. This month we are featuring Agnes and Dora with a pencil skirt that has become a staple in my closet. I have it in like 5 different colors and patterns.



You might know Agnes and Dora for their leggings - but they have skirts and dresses and tops to DIE for. You will be seeing a little more of them over the next month on the blog. I have some good things saved up for you. But that is beside the point... this post is all about their basic pencil skirt. Like I said, I have a handful of these skirts and they are great for work. They are professional enough for an office setting yet so comfy you could wear them for anything.

Since I generally wear them on a weekly basis to work with heels and a blouse, I decided to try it out with a different style to bring in the spunk that has been showing up in my wardrobe lately. So I paired it with my converse instead of heels to give it a casual vibe. Then I threw on a graphic tee - another Routine Baseball classic pun, I cannot get enough of their tees these days - and a plaid around the waist to make it all feel a little more urban. I say urban because this is something that was totally inspired by what I wear when I teach UJAM which is a cardio dance fitness class with urban beats.









Tee: Routine Baseball
Skirt: Agnes and Dora
Plaid: Target
Shoes: Converse Outlet


And there you have it. My take on a classic pencil skirt. Since we are all sharing the same piece on a different body type here is a reminder of my sizing – I am 5’9″ and I generally wear a 10/12 – 10 on a good day, 12 on a not good day… you understand, right? So I ordered this skirt in a large. It fit tightly and it is something I have felt I needed to watch my posture when wearing - you know what I mean. I love sharing my style with you, but I also want you to see clothing I style in other body types so you can find what is best for you. So feel free to check out how Kaylynn,Bethany, Jacque, and Sarah styled this outfit as well! And watch for a new piece of clothing styled by 5 every month.
