Four Ways to Wear a Mustard Yellow Pencil Skirt

In previous posts I’ve been eluding to how my shopping habits are changing.  I now try to buy pieces that I not only love, but also pieces that can go with many other items that I already have in my closet.  While perusing the tall section of a couple of weeks ago, I came across this mustard yellow pencil skirt.  It was regularly priced at $64.99 and I bought it on sale for $26.00. I wasn’t particularly looking for a mustard pencil skirt, but you know (if you’ve been following the blog for a while, that yellow is my happy color). My reasons for purchasing this skirt were: I loved this color, I know that a pencil skirt is a classic piece that can be dressed up or down, plus the medium weight fabric of this skirt is perfect for any season.  I knew my options would be truly limitless. So today is my first ever installment of a re-mix post.  I decided to wear the same black classic pumps to show that you can get four totally different looks just by switching out accessories and your tops.  But imagine when I change out my shoes, it creates four more entirely different outfits.

This first look could also be paired with black knee high boots or black ankle booties.

Sidenote: My sweater is too big in the body, I will be slimming it before I wear it again.

I really could have posted at least 25r different looks with this mustard yellow pencil skirt today, but I figured four was a good starting point.  I will show more looks with this pencil skirt in future posts as I wear them.  Especially this spring and summer, I already have outfit ideas in mind for it. Floral print blazer, printed blouse, sleeveless blouse, cardigans, tank top and denim jacket all paired with various sandals.  As you can see a mustard yellow pencil skirt is a vary versatile piece.
