Summer Pencil Skirts

I wore a skirt to work for the first time yesterday. Well, the first time at this particular job at least. I got pretty lucky with a super casual dress code which I wasn't used to at all. Oh, no. I was used to dress pants, skirt suits, and closed-toed shoes. This job, on the other hand, gives me a lot more freedom which is pretty convenient. However, when I do get to "dress up" a little, I really kick it up a notch. We had an exec coming into the office yesterday so it was my perfect opportunity.

So, a pencil skirt it was! I was pumped. I went with my faux denim pencil skirt from H&M and a V-neck t-shirt. I mean, I couldn't look THAT dressed up.

Here is a similar skirt

I just love pencil skirts. You can wear them in colder weather with tights or wear them in the Summer! You can dress them up with a blouse and heels or dress them down a little with a t-shirt and cute sandals. 
Today, I'll be sharing some pencil skirts that I think are perfect for these warmer months. Again, regardless of weather you dress business formal or casual for work, these skirts could be dressed up or down.

And, if you can't tell what my favorite color is by now, it's obviously turquoise. My bad! But, is it not the perfect Summer color? :)

As you can see, there are many different options that are affordable for Summer-esque pencil skirts. Whether you prefer something with a pattern or a solid color to mix and match with different blouses, there's something for everyone.

Are you a pencil skirt lover too? Where have you found your favorites?
