New Lengths

Sharing to you guys photos from our recent trip to Manila. I flew into the capital with Charles last month for a business trip. I wanted to dress appropriately for our appointments so I put together this smart casual look. I chose a striped pencil skirt and a chic black boat neck top.
Work wear doesn't have to be boring. You can play with colors and patterns as long as you don't go overboard. If you want to wear prints, just remember to keep the rest of the outfit simple. You wouldn't want to look like a walking Christmas tree in front of your boss, right? So if you're wearing a busy top, try pairing it with a more classic skirt and vice versa.

Because we were going to be busy running around, I decided to accessorize minimally and just wear earrings and a slim belt. To complete my look, I grabbed my favorite quilted bag and put on my opaque tights.

This skirt is just perfection. The fit is spot on, it's not too long and the stripe pattern is stylish. I'm currently a bit obsessed with pencil skirts so I'm really pleased I can add this to my collection. 

Have a fabulous weekend, my loves! :)

Sometimes a pencil skirt can dwarf me but not with the right pair of shoes. Your skirt reminds me of Vanessa East's.
