Pencil Skirt

Jane Norman and her ‘famous’ pencil skirt

For many years now I’ve been having a weak spot. This weakness relates to the designer of the most fabulous pencil skirt ever: Jane Norman. I’ve never tried on a pencil skirt from a brand other than Jane Norman that fits better, looks more luxuous and is more easy to handle than and the ones I’ve collected over the years designed by Jane Norman. I mean, really, you should try them yourself. I can assure you will be SOLD! I guess one of the reasons for my secret ‘addiction’ is that the pencil skirt can be worn on many different occasions and may be combined with both casual and business wear. Like oversized sweaters and sneakers for a casual look, or a perfectly ironed blouse or peplum top for a more formal look.

Besides the perfectly designed pencil skirt Jane Norman also has outstanding (pencil) dresses in many bright colors and very nice peplum tops.

Below I’ve posted a few items that are part of my favorite ready-to-wear wardrobe at this moment. The Peplum top matches great with any kind of pencil skirt for a dressed up look!

Autumn colored outfit(s)

Autumn is in the air! Lot’s of rain is heading our way, temperature is still nice and now and then the sun is un-hiding ;-). For me, this is the right moment to change my wardrobe view 180 degrees and prepare for the next season. I’m loving it!

At this moment I really appreciate the red and maroon colored pieces. It almost matches every skin type (at least if you combine it with the right color tone for your skin type) and, most important, it’s trending FW15/16!

Underneath I’ve selected a few items that should complete my autumn wardrobe for now. My key item should be the stunning red Filling Pieces sneakers!
