Skirt Week 2: Creative Draping

I love pieces for work that are comfortable but that also have a lot of polish.  I find myself reaching more and more for knits and drapey fits.

Skirt:  New York & Company (Available here)

This scuba knit pencil skirt and lightweight drapey sweater from New York & Company are super comfortable.  I added in a loose fit top with architectural pleats for a color and a bit of polish.

Blouse:  Target (Available here)

This sweater is the perfect weight for spring – it works well for air-conditioned offices without being too warm once I head outside of the office.

I do plan on getting the skirt taken in a bit more.  Since it’s a stretchy knit, I want a super pencil-y fit through the hips and legs!

Tote:  Target (Available here)

I finished the look off with a fringe necklace and my floral lace-up heels.  I had actually planned on wearing the shoes from this look, but they were really old and when is started to put them on, I realized one of straps across the top had come apart from the shoe! 🙁

Shoes:  Prabal Gurung for Target

I have very small but wide and thick feet.  It’s always so hard for me to find new shoes that I just hate when I have to retire a favorite pair.

Necklace:  Target
Cuff:  The Limited

Do you have a difficult time finding shoes that fit? How do you maintain your work style while keeping comfort in mind?
