Pencil skirts always intimidated me as something you could only wear to work – never on an easy day off. And the longing to create a look that could encompass both simplicity and comfort with a pencil skirt brings me here! I’ve been loving the look of “Peter Pan” collars for years, the femininity yet boy-meets-girl appeal when paired with a looser blouse or sweatshirt over the top is a combination that can’t be beaten in my book. I tried to keep this look on the more put together side of things for brunching and what not, but you could easily make this look even more wearable by switching the top out for a chunky sweater, the sneakers for your favorite gym kicks, and a baseball cap for that laid-back “cool girl” look. It’s crazy to think that a year ago all I thought you could could wear with a pencil skirt was a blazer, boy have I learned!
Since Fall is quickly approaching, a lot of stores are beginning to empty their racks on summer pieces and even start sales on Fall 2014 items for us early birds getting ready! And since the dreaded days of being a student are still with me, I know that preparing early is a lot better than scrambling at the last second in stores that are usually sold out of my size in everything (funny how that works?).

Even though it’s the middle of July, it doesn’t stop me from fantasizing about how I plan to wear this fur jacketeverywhere. I can’t help it, when you can get an extra 40% off of it’s clearance price with code WEEKEND, how could you?
Kendall Jenner is quickly becoming a fashion icon for her role in the modeling industry and with good reason. This look is one I fell in love with when I initially saw it during Cannes; it’s a perfectly simple summer look with enough comfort the make it wearable for an everyday situation, yet it’s still glam enough to wear it for a brunch with the girls or even date night. And, if you know me, you know versatility is a key feature in my wardrobe. If I don’t have at least 3 different ways to wear a piece, I can’t convince myself to buy it, and, lucky for me, with rompers you can dress them up and down for nearly any and every occasion – so you can bet that I’ve had my eye on quite a few.
