Fantasy Closet {Sweaters+Pencil Skirts}

I'm feeling kind of ladylike recently that I've somehow taken affinity to pencil skirts. Not that its flattering or anything, it just sorts of bring a twist to my perennial favorite article of clothing aka skirts. That and the fact that I wear sweaters with almost anything nowadays. Crew neck, V neck, whatever neck-- its the easiest topper second to a white button down. 

Hence my winning formula of the sweater and the pencil. Make it your own by adding an unexpected neck piece and/or some statement footwear. 

The Elements:
  1. Miu Miu Cashmere and Silk Blend Sweater
  2. Topshop Ponte Pencil Skirt
  3. Charlotte Olympia Pumps
  4. Adri Lara Necklace
  5. Helmut Lang Cropped Pullover
  6. Reiss Daphne Skirt
  7. Christian Louboutin Flats
  8. Roberto Cavalli Gold Plated Bib Necklace
  9. DVF Pauwau Sweater
  10. L'Wren Scott Pencil Skirt
  11. Christian Louboutin Markesling Pumps
  12. Katharine Necklace
P.S. Mummies, fret not. As this may be challenging (threatening even), I urge you not to be thrown off so easily. If you're a working mum, try this ensemble to work (depending on the nature of your work, of course). If you're a SAHM, give yourself a break, dress up, and ask the Mr. out on a date. Either way, it should be fun.
