In my search for non-denim casual pants, what do I find? A pencil skirt! Go figure.
The good news…it fits right off the rack! The bad news…keeping white bottoms clean is going to be a feat of unbridled proportions.
This little beauty is available online at AnnTaylor.com on sale for $89.99, with an extra 40%, bringing it to $54. However, I found this skirt in store, on sale for $59.99, with an extra 40% off, bringing it to $36. I’m not sure why there’s a price discrepancy, but check your local Ann Taylor store for the better deal.
The additional lining of the front pockets keep the front of the skirt from showing anything underneath. From the back, make sure you’re wearing nude colored undies because there’s a small amount of see-through. I had a problem tucking this shirt into the skirt, because the shirt-tail was pretty obviously showing through. I ended up folding the shirt underneath itself to decrease the amount of shirt to be tucked, and it worked well enough.
Overall, I like the texture and crisp look to this skirt, and I’ll try my darndest to keep it clean. I have a feeling this skirt will see lots of visits to the dry cleaner, but totally worth it. I think it fits in well with my current “tomboy country-club chic” style, don’t ya think? :)
Have a great weekend!
