Floral Pencil Skirt

When I first started blogging, I was obsessed with pencil skirts! At the time, as I recall, J. Crew was somewhat responsible for bringing back this classic silhouette with their no. 2 pencil skirt. While it's true that nothing gives you a polished look quite like a pencil skirt, over the years I moved on to more flowy skirts in my wardrobe. (It's interesting to see how your style evolves over the years!) Well, I'm back in a pencil skirt with this fun, floral pencil skirt! What attracted me to this skirt was the vibrant, colorful floral print that I thought would be the perfect addition to by spring wardrobe! After spending the last year living mostly in sweatpants (despite the fashionable outfits you see here on my blog!), I will have to say that it felt nice to be wearing a pencil skirt again!

After years of blogging, one thing I've learned is that you have to be prepared for any situation when taking photos! For example, these photos were taken outside of a florist that's located in an alley. While it's not shown in the photos, above this florist are apartments with small balconies that have wide open slats for the balcony floors. The reason I'm sharing this detail is that, as soon as we started taking pictures, someone above me on the balcony started opening up boxes and was throwing the around contents! It made me a little nervous because I thought something might fall and hit me in a head! Luckily, only some cardboard fell down through the floor slats, which scared me at first, but the blog photos must go on!

  1. What a fun outfit! Can't be in a bad mood wearing this beauty.


  2. I'd be scared something would hit me too! But you can't tell from these gorgeous photos! Your pretty outfit pops against the brick background! Love that beautiful skirt!

  3. Katie, this skirt is so much fun! I love the big, bold, bright floral print. I always keep a small collection of pencil skirts in my wardrobe because they are always in style when you feel in the mood for this sleek classic silhouette. But like you, I tend to go for swingier style skirts and dresses. I giggled at the cardboard storm happening above you during your photoshoot. So funny!



Say hello to Hello Katie! I would love to hear from you!
