Cubicle to Cocktails: Featuring J. Crew's Neopolitan Pencil Skirt

Hi everyone!

Today's edition of Cubicle to Cocktails features J.Crack's new Neopolitan Pencil Skirt. I saw this skirt in store and I really liked it for spring. The color mixture is just bright enough for spring/summer, but can also be winterized with some dark tights.

Clearly this skirt was maaade for work. It's completely office appropriate - just make sure the length flatters your body. As Tim Gunn would say, right above the knee or right below - don't mess with the in-between. I personally enjoy my pencil skirts hitting just above the knee, but it's up to you! A quick tailoring makes all the difference.

So, utilizing this skirt, or a similarly patterned pencil skirt in your collection, I warmed it up for the office with a nice neutral turtleneck and lightweight cardi. For the drinkity drinks, I really like this flowy silk, strapless tanked and would tuck it into the skirt and belt it up. The crackled copper shoes may be a bit much for some office settings, but I love a little shine at the feet. Plus, this copper is surprisingly neutral and can work with a variety of color palettes.

So, what do you think of today's Cubicle to Cocktails? Have you tried J.Crew's Neopolitan pencil skirt?

I like that skirt! it's business-appropriate but still cute. Sometimes JCrew is too business-ey for me, but I could see rockin' it. :)
