I went into Loft the other day for a sweater and came out with a sweater and this fantastic {faux} leather  pencil skirt.  It looks really brown in these pictures but it’s actually a super amazing deep marsala color (plum raisin I think they call it), and is the softest most comfortable pencil skirt I’ve probably ever worn.  I haven’t found a pencil skirt I really love in a few years, so this find was slightly monumental.  I love the exposed seams down the front; details like that always make me giddy (clothes nerd).  My husband loved the little slit in the front.  ;-)
Sometimes, I just really love a simple classic look.  A pencil skirt and a chunky turtleneck sweater, just sing understated elegance and simplicity.  I feel like this outfit can be worn to the office, to church, or even on a date.  It translates quite beautifully to many situations.  I love having pieces that are versatile like that in my closet.  I end up pulling from them so much.
Even though these silhouettes are pretty low-key and basic you can still infuse an element of surprise into the look.  Switching up the classic pencil skirt for one of the leather/faux leather variety is a great way to keep it feeling polished and profession while adding a little more personality and mixing it up a bit.
