Watch: Michael Kors ‘Lexington’ MK5556 (buy, similar)
One of the things about getting older and figuring out my style is that I’m suddenly not as scared to splurge a little on “investment pieces” that know will last in my closet season after season and even from pre-pregnancy to post-pregnancy. Five years ago I would’ve scoffed at the idea of spending any more than $50 for a skirt. But now, after having run the gamut of pencil skirts from Forever 21, LOFT, Banana Republic, and J.Crew, I can attest that the ones from J.Crew just seem to fit my body the best and are the most worn items in my closet — in particular, the No. 2 pencil skirt. The structure and weight of the skirt is perfect and the flattering silhouette makes it timeless classic. Surprisingly, it was actually the only pencil skirt in my closet that looked decent on my post-baby body when I had to return to work at 3 months. And so when a 25% off sale popped up a couple weeks ago, I decided to pull the trigger on this pretty thing. 🙂
Also, if anyone is interested in the Banana Republic gingham skirt that I posted a couple days ago, I have an extra in size 00P that I ordered and used a reward certificate with when it first came out (I later re-ordered when BR had a 40% flash sale). Since I noticed that size 00P is sold out online, I figured I’d offer it to anyone here who was interested before returning it to the store. I’m selling it for exactly the same amount that I paid for it plus shipping: $79.50 – $10 rewards + 8.25% tax + $3.50 shipping = $78. Just comment below or email me if you’re interested!
Have a great weekend!
