1950’s Neon

One of my favorite things is a well cut, knee length, high waist pencil skirt. This ones is years old but always remains in fashion because the print is tiny hounds tooth-style which is pretty classic. And a high wasit hides the muffin top!

I also watched a Mad Men re-run last night and was inspired by the Jessica Rabbit curves that were emphasized with girdles and corsets. Today we have Spanx! Haha

To keep the skirt modern I paired with a neon shirt, tucked in, and some black peep toes. Minimal jewelry because the neon is fairly bold!

I also wear this skirt with a simple white collared shirt, tucked in, for a more classic, professional approach.

I adore fashion and spend most of my free time looking for great, chic items I can mix and match. Oh, and the occasional luxury item of course! There is nothing better than sitting in a boring meeting and being inspired by your own shoes :)
