Pencil Skirts and Dresses for Work

I don't think you can go wrong with a pencil skirt paired with a cardigan set or crisp white shirt for work attire.  It's classic and timeless.  I'm into the colored pencil skirts this year for some reason.  They just seem fun and something different to the usual black, brown or navy.  And for a piece that will last you forever, J. Crew is where I go.
I'm loving this vibrant flame redish color this fall.  I don't know that I'd put it with this sweater but....
And at the end of last year, I was able to pick up a Brooks Brother's dress similar to the below for only $50.  It is black, has sleeves and is lined.  It's the classic black dress that you can dress up or down and put it with so many different things.  Bargain! 

I was thinking about it yesterday and I'm actually glad we have to dress up for work....mainly because I don't own many casual clothes that are work appropriate (aka I can't wear much Lilly or bright clothing to work!).  And since I've always had to dress up, I've just bought more dressy clothes.  But let me tell ya - after a long week, casual Friday is quite nice too! ;) 

Tell me what it's like in your workplace!  What do you have to wear?

I think pencil skirts are so classic. You can keep them for years and change up the shoes and top and nobody ever knows. A wonderful staple to own.

I love the colored pencil skirts because they're still structured, but not boring!

I wish I could wear pencil skirts and dresses to work, but I'm not graceful enough to handle them while I'm on and off the floor helping my kiddos. I have been slowly stocking up just in case I find myself in another job someday. I love the blue skirt!
