Back to Skirts

I was very lucky to have had the last two weeks off from work. It was a nice time of fun and relaxation, with maybe the exception of William wreaking havoc upon us all. (Although to his credit he has mellowed out quite a bit and is growing into a more mature version of himself!) Sadly vacation has come to an end, as all good things must, and it is back to the grind stone so to speak. I noticed that over these last two weeks I primarily wore pants with the exception of Christmas Day, which is atypical for me. At work I am most likely to be found wearing a skirt with the exception of Fridays and rainy days.

Today I wore yet another pencil skirt, the J. Crew no. 2 pencil skirt in geometric print. I really like the navy and purple/pink colors of this particular pencil skirt and the funky pattern they create. The pattern, according to J. Crew, is taken from a scarf from the 70's which they acquired from a Brooklyn flea market. Really? If you've read my blog before you will know that I approach these fanciful stories about where J. Crew gets their prints from with an air of skepticism.  Anyway, this skirt reminds me of laser beams. You know like the ones you see in movies about jewel thieves that surround some precious piece of jewelry or work of art?

  1. Beautiful outfit, I love all of the colors going on. I laugh at the stories J. Crew comes up with about their prints, but maybe they are true?! The skirt pattern does look like laser beams, good imagination! Hope your week started off well!
