Just a quick outfit post from the weekend. I’m trying to get pencil skirts out of my system before the weather gets too cold! See here how I styled this same pencil skirt back in the Spring.

Also, note that this skirt is 22″ long. The skirt in my last post was 25.5″ long. It’s amazing how much of a difference 3″ makes. It’s also amazing how much I am in love with this polka-dot scarf?

Hope your week is going well :)

You can see from my September style obsessions post that I really am obsessed with burgundy and magenta! Here’s an outfit I out together with my new striped shirt from J.Crew. The shirt is a bit short lengthwise, but you’d never know it when it’s tucked into a skirt.

Everyone needs a little black dress. My little black dress, however, is VERY little! Borderline too little. I purchased it from American Eagle last winter and wore it out once with black tights. I felt a bit black swan-esque (not that it’s a bad thing!), but it was fun dress to wear out on the town. I don’t think I’d ever wear anything shorter than this, though. As is, I have to be really careful not to bend down!

I’m on the lookout for a slightly longer, slightly less ruffled little black dress and also some more club appropriate heels. I’ve tried the bodycon dresses, but they just don’t look good on me. Any suggestions?
