Pencil Skirt...

This is the first time in my 30, whoops almost wrote 29, years of life that I have owned a pencil skirt. I always thought because I am short with curves that it would look all wrong. But I found this rocking one last week on clearance at Trade Secret and I figured what the heck. I got it home tried it on and was so disappointed, it hit my ankles. Talk about reality check on how short I really am!

Then I quickly pulled myself up by my collar when I remember, have sewing machine, will alter. Duh! Sometimes I forget what's right in front of my face. So I altered away. And wouldn't you know it, this is now my favourite skirt.

I have worn it three times this last week. Once with this black tee, once with a white tee and once with my trusty chambray. It's so darn versatile! 

And now I feel so silly for waiting so long to just give one a shot. What do you all think?

Tee: Big W, Skirt: Trade Secret, Sandals: Kmart, Earrings: Bip & Bop, Bracelets: Sassy Lemonade & Pandora

This last one is when I caught the littles watching me with their faces pressed up against the glass door, calling out why are you taking pictures of yourself mum! Gah!

I won a pencil skirt once, and havent worn it once :/ I find they sit funny on my body, like my butt isn't big enough to fill it out or something. This skirt actually suits you! Absolutely rocking the stripes :) xx
