Last month I launched a new series on the blog I call 'The Top Trend' (you can check out my first post here). This month the trending piece you should include in your wardrobe this season is a knit pencil skirt. I'm especially loving striped ones. They are so versatile and so easy to wear. There is something about knit fabric that allows a piece to be dressy or casual, which I love. It's nice to have a handful of these kinds of items in your closet that can get you through multiple events no matter what the dress code.
This casual version is how I most frequently style my knit pencil skirts. A comfy loose tee, hat, and white tennis shoes make for the perfect momiform. I can run around town and chase after my kids easily in this cute casual look.
I threw on my trusty denim vest for this look. The look would be cute with just the tee, but a vest adds an essential 'third piece', something that makes the look comprehensive and complete. You could do the same thing with a jean jacket and achieve the same effect.
