Capsule Wardrobe, Outfits 17 & 18: Monochrome Polish

Not including the looks I’m sharing today, we’ve had sixteen looks out of the thirty goal for our ten items.  I feel like we’ve accomplished quite a bit as things stand, but I’m determined to meet the goal.  Today, as I looked through what we’ve put together so far, I realized that one item has been pretty much ignored:  the pencil skirt.

Maybe it’s my personal preference for slacks, I can’t say for certain, but that beautiful pencil skirt has been downright neglected.  So, today I decided to share two looks that highlight the pencil skirt.  Time to give it a moment in the spotlight, wouldn’t you agree?

For the first outfit, I paired our the downtrodden skirt with a simple white tee.  White on white isn’t something I usually wear; I’m just too prone to spills, stains, if there’s a dirty surface nearby I’m almost guaranteed to brush against it, and so on.  I don’t stay white on white for long.  That being said, I liked the look.

When I slid on my pearl heels, It felt a bit like I was pushing for an edgy, powerhouse look—which wasn’t how I was feeling—so I softened things with a partial up-do.  Overall, I like the look, though whether I’d dare to wear it out…I’m not so sure.  Maybe if I had an “in case of emergency” backup piece for each, when I inevitably got something on them.

For the second outfit, this one ventured out into the world with me yesterday, I swapped my basic, white tee shirt for its black counterpart.  And yes, for anyone wondering, I had my leggings in my purse just in case.

I’m not sure where our beautiful, sunny, warm spring disappeared to, but the last few days it’s been downright cold; on Easter eve it was, quite literally, freezing overnight.  Because of the temperature drop, I decided to swap my pearl heels for my tall boots, giving myself a little boost in heat trapping ability.

As much as I like black and white, I felt like I needed an accessory to really pull this look off, so I added the slightest pinch of color with my turquoise pendant.  I felt fairly sassy in this outfit, which can be a good thing from time to time, especially on day one of returning to the grind after vacation.

  • Awwww, the all white outfit is sooo romantic. This could be something for a wedding, maybe not at church but at the registry office or for start of the honeymoon. The skirt is absolutely adorable!!!

    • I didn’t even think of it like that, but now that you mention it, I totally see it. It’s got a very “sweet” look to it.
