White Pencil Skirt Outfit

Though I love wearing white jeans year round, I usually save all my white skirts for spring and summer. Especially a crisp white pencil skirt – there is nothing better than wearing that to the office on a gorgeous spring day! I posted this specific outfit a few years ago so all the exact pieces are sold out (I will link similar finds) but thought I would share an inspo post for styling a white pencil skirt in the spring and summer. White pencil skirts are so versatile and can be styled a ton of different ways – dressed up or down and suitable for a variety of occasions. It’s key to find one that is high quality and not see through but you don’t necessarily have to spend a ton for that. I picked two white skirts and styled each two ways. One skirt is traditionally more professional and suitable for an office, while the other is a denim pencil skirt which is so on trend at the moment.

Outfits With White Pencil Skirt

Business Casual Outfit with a White Pencil Skirt

This pencil skirt is a traditional style that we all think of – slim fitting, simple and goes straight to the knee or slightly below. A classic wardrobe piece especially if you work in a more corporate or professional setting. If your office is a tad more forgiving in terms of wearing something sleeveless and allowing open toe sandals, this is exactly the kind of look that I myself would wear when I used to work in an office.

Sleeveless Sweater – I love the square neckline of this and slight cap sleeve which gives it a polished flair, while the gold buttons elevate the piece.

White Pencil Skirt – Simple and chic. A timeless piece you will have in your closet for years to come.

Strappy Sandals – While these sandals would look great with this sweater/skirt pairing, this style of sandal would be a great staple to have in your closet. Wear them to weddings, graduations, baby showers, evenings out, etc. The simplicity of the style make them appropriate to wear with almost anything.

Cream Shoulder Bag – I specifically chose this color bag for this look to be a mix of the tan and white together. It doesn’t necessarily match but it effortlessly works to create a neutral theme overall.

Gold and Silver Bracelet – Since the sweater is sleeveless and the gold button detail is up around the neckline, opt for a statement bracelet instead of a necklace. If you decide to wear earrings, go for something very small and barely visible.

Corporate Professional Outfit with a White Pencil Skirt

For anyone that needs to wear a suit to the office every day or wear only professional attire, this is the perfect look for spring and summer. You could always choose a matching white blazer to wear with the skirt, but I like the idea of off setting the color palette slightly by wearing a cream jacket and adding in some texture with the tweed fabric.

Tweed Jacket – I love that tweed cardigans and lady jackets are still trending so heavily because they are truly such a chic and polished piece to add to your closet. That are obviously appropriate for a professional corporate setting, but I love styling them with jeans and trousers as well to dress them down a bit.

White Pencil Skirt – Simple and chic. A timeless piece you will have in your closet for years to come.

Slingback Pumps – Not everyone can wear an open toe shoe to the office so these closed toe slingback pumps are gorgeous and a great price point. Also, they are not white and again create a bit of an extended color palette to the cream jacket and white skirt. It all blends together and doesn’t have to match exactly.

Textured Tote Bag – I didn’t want to choose brown or cream for the bag because it felt too dull or expected, but opting for a muted yellow/mustard tone was a nice way to add in color that still worked with the entire look.

Gold Drop Earrings – You could obviously still wearing a necklace or bracelet but the high neck and long sleeves of the cardigan will prevent it from being visible so choose a simple statement earring to complete the look.

Weekend Brunch Outfit with a White Pencil Skirt

For this mix of outfits, I chose an off white denim midi skirt for those that still love the idea of a pencil skirt but want something more casual and relaxed. Though you can dress this down a ton of different ways, a white denim pencil skirt is best for more casual or off duty occasions.

Striped Boatneck Tee – There is nothing more classic than black and white. Since the denim skirt is high waisted, I love the idea of a boxy cropped tee paired with it. Skip the belt with this one because it will be too heavy with the striped top.

Denim Midi Skirt – I personally LOVE the denim midi skirt trend and wore mine all last summer. The idea of a white or off white denim midi pencil skirt is perfect for spring and summer. And I prefer one with a slit up the front because it makes it look more casual and relaxed.

Strappy Flat Sandals – You could choose a nude sandal but I do like the idea of tying together the black top with the black sandals. Especially with bare legs, choose a delicate strappy black shoe. A black flat or black closed toe shoe could be too heavy and look unbalanced with a bare leg and such a light and spring-like look.

Colorful Tote – This is where you can have some fun and add in a pop of color! Any color would do but I personally love a watermelon pink or red with black and white. If you don’t want to add some color with a bag, choose a fun punchy lip color or colorful bracelets instead.

Gold Hoop Earrings – For this kind of relaxed look, throw on some hoop earrings that are perhaps a bit larger than what you would wear to the office or to work.

Creative Business Casual Outfit with a White Denim Pencil Skirt

I think of a look like this suitable for a creative industry that doesn’t necessarily have a dress code. Art director, graphic designer, public relations, etc – a denim on denim moment with some sparkly flats is such a fun and vibrant way to style a simple white skirt.

Western Chambray Shirt – A chambray shirt will always be in style though it may not be trending at the moment. It’s simply a button down blouse in a fabric that looks like denim. Therefore it will always convey a more casual vibe. And I like the idea of wearing it with a denim pencil skirt for that denim on denim look.

Denim Midi Skirt – I personally LOVE the denim midi skirt trend and wore mine all last summer. The idea of a white or off white denim midi pencil skirt is perfect for spring and summer. And I prefer one with a slit up the front because it makes it look more casual and relaxed.

Crystal Ballet Flats – These are VERY trendy at the moment but frankly I absolutely LOVE them. They add some femininity to a more classic outfit and give a bit of texture and sparkle too. Also, anything metallic or embellished with clear crystals will always be considered a neutral so it can be worn with almost any color palette.

Neutral Suede Belt – I would recommend tucking in the chambray shirt and then adding a belt to really bring the look together. Dark brown is too harsh and black is not a great option, so choose something in the taupe family with either gold or silver hardware.

Neutral Tote Bag – I own this tote in black and it is by far one of my favorite bags in my entire closet. It’s sturdy, holds a ton and looks incredibly chic. This color pairs nicely with the white and taupe and can easily be worn with so many other looks in your closet.

10 Spring Date Night Outfits

| ,

Spring Date Night OutfitsSpring is officially here and temps are slowly beginning to warm up. Outdoor dining is back and it’s the perfect time to enjoy a meal outside. Spring date nights are the best excuse to experiment with different looks after the long days of winter. Switching up your date night outfits with the season can be fun and exciting and spring is a great time to pull out all your cute dresses and shorts for a night out. I thought I would round up a bunch of spring date night looks that would work for a variety of different places and occasions.

10 Spring Date Night Outfits

Bright Colored Top

After the cold and dark of winter, it is fun to add a bit of color into your wardrobe for spring. A bright top like this is an instant mood elevator too! This particular style comes in a ton of colors but I love this bright pink paired with simple white jeans and clear heels.

Lace Top + Jeans

I love how versatile a lace top can be. Wear it with a camisole and trousers for the workplace or opt for a black bra underneath and fitted jeans for a date night. You can add some strappy sandals to elevate the look or keep things comfortable with some slingbacks.

Slip Skirt

This look is effortlessly chic and would be the perfect look for a first date or new relationship! The silky skirt is so flattering but wearing it with a cropped tee and sandals balances it out and keeps it comfortable. Throw a cardigan over your shoulders for some texture and pattern but if it gets cold you can throw it on to cover your arms.

Maxi Sundress

If you are someone that loves a date night dress but want something that is still comfortable, a flowy maxi dress is always a great choice. It’s feminine and chic yet allows you to eat! LOL Add some fun accessories to dress it up but then throw on some sneakers and a denim jacket on the weekend to make it work for a casual lunch.

Black Midi Dress

A black dress will never steer your wrong – especially on a date night. This one shoulder style is great for a night out and shows a bit of skin but is well balanced with the midi length. I would wear a look like this for a dressier evening out or if you have a dinner party that you are attending. Since the dress is so simple you can really amp up the accessories or keep things neutral.

Denim Midi Skirt

For my gals that want to wear something a bit more trendy (*raises hand*), I love the idea of a denim midi skirt with a simple white tank for a spring date night. In fact, I wore this exact denim midi skirt a ton last summer for various nights out – it became my default look because I loved it so much. The front slit allowed for a bit of leg and I would wear a tank or crop top with it for a night out!

This may seem a bit too dressy for a spring date night but as someone that has been married for 10+ years, I love any excuse to be a bit overdressed. Ha! If you want to dress down a fancier dress, opt for either flats or a low heel and a simple bag. It will make it more suitable for a casual atmosphere yet still feel elevated and polished.

Mini Dress

Especially for spring and going into summer, a fun mini dress in a bright color is always one of my favorite looks for a date night. It’s fun and flirty and can be worn with sneakers to keep things very casual or strappy sandals for a dressier spot. This particular dress comes in a ton of colors so if you want something more subtle, get it in black or white and add some colorful accessories.

Black Shorts

I have a few pairs of non denim shorts in my closet and often style them for a night out during spring and summer. I prefer a slightly longer style and styling them with a cropped lace top and clear sandals is a great way to make the look work for a date night. In fact, I ordered this top a few years ago and it’s still one of my favorites to wear. It looks great with a black camisole underneath for the daytime or even a business casual environment, but then wearing it with just a black bra and shorts is the perfect way to transition it to a night out.

Black Top + Jeans

When you are completely stumped and can’t decide what to wear, a cute top and jeans will never let you down. I love the drop shoulder style on this top from Amazon and styling it with some fitted white jeans and heels is a great spring date night look. I would even wear a look like this for a first date too.
