The black pencil skirt…

DSC_6396E DSC_6305E DSC_6221E DSC_6404E DSC_6315EAbout a week ago, I talked about the versatility of the pencil skirt. Today, I not only wanted to showcase once again this important closet member but I also wanted to show you the one and only Black Pencil Skirt. In my personal opinion, you will never do wrong by investing in a good quality, perfect fitting black pencil skirt. It is a piece that you will be able to wear week after week and still look completely different. I paired mine (which I have owned for many years) with a silk floral long sleeve blouse. I chose to add a pair of bright orange strappy shoes in order to add more color to the look and also create a color block effect. By the way, these pictures were taken at Rollins College in Winter Park, FL. It is actually a beautiful campus with lots of picturesque views. As always, I hope you enjoy this post. Have a blessed night and sweet dreams:-) Love, Ms. Jeannie.


The Midi Skirt…

I love wearing skirts and lately, I have been drawn to wearing midis, the in-between length that most of us (including me)
are a little afraid to wear because it may make us look frumpy. I decided to get over the fear and go back in time to the 50’s where style icons like Grace Kelly wore the midi with remarkable elegance and class. The midi skirt or tea skirt, if styled properly, can work wonders for many of us. It accentuates the waist and when paired with pumps can make your legs look a mile longer. The midi can gracefully cover those spider veins and other things we don’t like so much and rest assured you will look amazing! The skirt I am wearing below was created by my lovely and very talented friend Silvia Helena. I decided to pair it with a black cropped top to create a look that is more ladylike but just know that a midi skirt looks equally fantastic with a casual top like a graphic sweatshirt or worn-in denim jacket. So now go ahead, be creative and wear the midi any way you like it but don’t forget to tell me about it:-) Blessings to you all my friends! Love, Ms. Jeannie.
