Office Style: The Pencil Skirt

Pencil Skirt: KTR Collection| Floral/Polka Dot Blouse: Choies|
Ankle Strap Pumps: Forever 21| Earrings: Forever 21| Satchel: Anne Klein

Dressing up for the office can be a little tricky depending on the type of office you work for. Some offices are more conservative than others, but one thing I have learned is that the key to looking fabulous at work, is to keep it classy and always exude confidence. It's important to wear something you feel comfortable in and something that represents your personality. If you're anything like me (girly and colorful), then you wouldn't mind adding a pop of color to your office attire. 

The pencil skirt is a classic staple piece in every career woman's closet. It's classy and sassy. This fuchsia pencil skirt is a great way to bring out your colorful personality while still looking classy. The designer of this skirt is one of my favorite style blogger/fashion designer, Mrs. KT Reed. I have been following her blog ever since I started my own blog. She was such an inspiration from day one. I love her creativity, her fashion sense, and her personality. She's just one of those people that even though I don't know her personally, I feel like I've known her all my life. I think it's because she reminds me so much of me. We have so many things in common! When I found out she was launching her own fashion line and online boutique I couldn't be more excited. She launched her fashion line and online boutique in June of 2013. I can't believe it took me this long to finally support my fellow style blogger/fashionista. Her clothing is a little on the pricey side, but I have to say it is definitely worth the investment. Not only because of the quality, but because it's handmade by KT Reed herself. She puts in a lot of hard work to keep her business going and that's not an easy thing to do. I am a huge supporter of small businesses and as soon as I was able to spend a little extra cash on clothes, I chose to go straight to KTR Collection. I also want to mention that this pencil skirt is part of a suit. It includes a cropped jacket with front zipper. Since it's too warm out for the suit, I decided to hold off until gets cooler and wear it in the Fall.

I opted to wear this skirt with a floral shirt with polka dot sleeves. I love that the color of the skirt picks up the fuchsia color of the flowers on the shirt. The mix of floral and polka dot prints, and the beautiful fuchsia color make this look sweet and ladylike. I wore a belt around the skirt to add a little more interest. Black pointed toe pumps and a classic bun complete this very chic office look. 

I hope you enjoyed this post. Be sure to check out KT Reed's blog ((here) and her online boutique ((here). She has a lot of beautiful pieces in her collection. I can't wait to make my next purchase because I have my eyes set on a few pieces.

Thank you for stopping by my blog! Stay tuned, and stay beautiful inside and out.
