Fashion for the Professional

Happy Friday! 

After much needed rain yesterday, it is gorgeous in the Philly area today. The cooler temps are starting to feel like fall! 

With school and many jobs back in session, I wanted to share a professional look with you all, featuring the popular pencil skirt. One thing I've learned over the years is that the pencil skirt never goes out of style. This fall, they are everywhere! Pencil skirts are the perfect wardrobe choice for many professions. Being that this is the "back to school" time of year, this is a great fall outfit for a teacher. This look would also be good for church, dinners out, interviews and work related events.

I am so excited to talk about this pencil skirt, mainly because of the price! This skirt is currently at Target on sale racks for $7.48!!! I just purchased it a few days ago, so hurry there and find your size! This skirt is lined so it isn't too tight or see through. I like the length and the quality is excellent for the price. If you don't find your size in stores, I linked similar versions from LOFT (40% off with code FALLSTYLE) and Kohl's below. 

Typically, I would style a pencil skirt with pumps, but being that booties are so trendy this fall, I gave them a try instead. I love how these Nine West peep toe booties add a unique flare to this outfit! If you live near a Nine West outlet, check these out. They are super comfy and versatile and I love the nude color. I also linked a very similar pair below.

Now, add your favorite colored top and a long necklace, and your outfit is complete! This teal three quarter length shirt is old, but you can get a similar version at a great price at Nordstrom. My gold necklace is from Premier Jewelry. Any long gold or silver necklace you have would work with an outfit like this. And, don't forget a cute purse, like this black crossbody bag!

Thanks for reading and have a blessed weekend!
