40 + Style Fall/Autumn I Wore This Work Wear

I’m a Joan, Not a Betty

I’m a big fan of the pencil skirt. I’m also a big fan of retro styling, which is probably why I like pencil skirts. Something about wearing a wool pencil skirt and a 3/4 length sleeve merino sweater always makes me feel like Joan from Mad Men. It’s simple, yet subtly sexy. I’m not a fan of overt sexiness, which I’m sure you have figured out by now. I just don’t feel comfortable dressing like that. If you do, that is great. It’s a personal preference.

There are so many different brands that offer pencil skirts, but I have to tell you, my favorite wool pencil skirt is from J. Crew Factory. The length hits right above the knee, as opposed to the skirts from the “regular” store, which hit me at the bottom of the knee. I think a hem line that hits right above the knee is a bit more flattering on me. I have this skirt in several colors and just might pick up another to get me through winter.

Where did I wear this? I wore this to work.
