I don't know about you, but I love a good floral pencil skirt. Only problem, I didn't own, well, until I refashioned an old floral skirt that I had lying around. I've had this linen floral maxi skirt that was shaped like a pencil skirt lying around for awhile now. One problem, the length was totally unflattering on me (it was Petites, which could have been part of the problem), so yeah, I never wore it even if I did love the print. When I was considering posting it for sale on my blog, I thought why not refashion it into a pencil skirt?!? So I did, last night at 10 o'clock. Yeah, I kinda like to do my refashioning projects late on Saturday nights. Not sure why? But, hey! Who's complaining? Not me.
Now since this was a last minute late night job, I don't have any before pictures of the skirt. This seems to be a common problem with me. I always rush head on when ever I refashion something, and never take any before pictures, only after. Hmm....I need to reform my ways. Anyhow, since I wanted to wear the skirt to church the next day, I needed some inspiration on how to style the skirt. Enter the wonderful world of Pinterest. I found the following adorable & stylish ways to wear a floral pencil skirt for spring and summer.
Cute, huh? The most common top pairings seem to be the following: gingham, chambray, stripes, or a solid color (either neutral or bright). I decided to take the chambray top as my inspiration, and just add more color with my accessories (jewelry & handbag), since my skirt is more on the muted side -- color wise.
