The Plus-size Workwear Challenge: Pencil skirt

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Hey my lovelies,

A few weeks ago the gorgeous Naomi of Diamonds n’ Pearls was asking other plus-size bloggers on Twitter if anyone would be interested in doing a five-week workwear challenge. There was a nice response and now it’s the 10 of us doing this! 2 of us will post each working day, and we have been given themes for each week. Please see this post by Naomi for more information :). First week’s challenge was a blazer, and you can see my post here.

This week’s challenge is pencil skirt or pussybow. Since I did a post with a pussybow blouse (the only one I own) a while ago, I decided to go with the pencil skirt. This burgundy jersey skirt is from Primark, the gorgeous wedges are from Shopbop, and I teamed them up with these awesome goodies I received from Curvissa last week - a long knit jumper and a blazer. The final touch is a toucan necklace from New Look. I think the look is very smart for work, but the sheerness of the knit and the wedges bring some sexiness to it. I’m happy I sized up for the jumper, as now it is lovely and oversized. (And thank you so much for taking my pics Isha.)
