Jacket, old (similar here). Skirt c/o SevenTwo Denim. Bralette, Nasty Gal. Purse c/o Pinkstix. Shoes, Lulus.

This pretty little denim pencil skirt should have been mine weeks ago, but our postal office was on a strike for some time and I have a feeling my skirt was an innocent bystander to all that chaos. Finally making it’s way to me weeks after having been mailed out – now looking back on it, having created a most favourable delay as I had intended to style this skirt in a summer outfit, but I actually really like it as a piece for Fall. I immediately tried it on upon receipt having been anxious on the fit – and it fit like a dream! Now at the time that I was trying it on I had on a bralette and the oh so snug (yet comfortable) fit of the pencil skirt was giving off total pinup girl vibes with the bralette and was worthy of its own look. After having tried it on (with no clue on what I would wear it with for this post) I made my way downstairs and we ended up watching Seinfeld reruns. The first episode my boyfriend put on was the one with the bra (The Caddy) and the little light bulb went off above my head shortly after Sue Ellen Mischke left Elaine’s office, leaving Elaine annoyed at how she wore her new bra. I had always wanted to wear a bralette with only a jacket over, but just had never done it yet for whatever reason. (Maybe it was the concern that if not done right this look can easily look trashy instead of classy) but this skirt had such an elegant and classy feel to it, that I figured was worth a try. It also gave me the chance to revive a velvet blazer I had picked up in Atlanta some years ago (and never really worn), taking full advantage of velvet being on trend this season. And that my friends, is how this outfit came to be. Has anything like this ever happened to any of you? I’d love to hear about it!

  1. Classy definitely, not trashy! I loved the denim skirt with the bralette and the velvet blazer is very cool, nice that you got to wear it. I loved the Seinfeld episode description, that one I didn't watch 🙂 Yes, post office delays happen, they are not fun 🙁 Hope you have a very nice day!
