I’m not a huge fan of skirts, so I’m pretty proud of myself for styling not one, but FOUR skirts during this summer style series! Today I’ve got a casual summer pencil skirt outfit with this denim button front skirt in a light beige they call Caribbean Sand.
I was immediately drawn to this skirt because it has all the practicality of denim, but the sand color with the tortoiseshell buttons makes it more polished than your typical jean skirt. It’s also the perfect just-above-the-knee length. The material is thick and stretchy and very comfortable.
SALE ALERT >> LOFT is running another 40% off sale, and you can get an additional 10% off your purchase with a LOVELOFT credit card. Use the code VACAY at checkout. Both the skirt and sleeve in this post are included.
Not that I’m in any mood to think about fall, but I do think this skirt will make a great transition piece when we get there. Just swap out the sandals for ankle boots and I can see wearing it well into November.
For size reference, I’m wearing the 6, and it’s snug, but because of the stretch it’s plenty comfortable. The material around the buttons doesn’t gape or anything, so I believe this is the correct size.
This skirt is currently 40% off the already reduced price — and they are starting to sell out, so if you like it, grab it now.
On top, I’m wearing a cap sleeve tee in a color they’re calling Coastal Grey.
Do you ever wonder how they come up with these color names? Is there a group sitting around a conference room table, discussing each one? Or is it one person who is assigned this job, and she just gets to go with whatever strikes her fancy? Yes, I think about these things…
At first I tried the front tuck with this top, but it has quite a dramatic shirttail hem, and I felt like it looked weird hanging down so far in the back, so I just tucked it in loosely all around.
For size reference, I’m wearing the 7.5 and it JUST fits. I didn’t try the 8 because they came from Trunk Club, but I would say they’re true to size. I could probably wear the 8 and be fine, but I kept the 7.5 and I’m happy with them.
And this bag works so perfectly with the shoes and the whole outfit. Mine is a larger size that is no longer available, but they still have this cardamom color in the smaller size.
I would wear this summer pencil skirt outfit to church or to lunch with friends, and it might be appropriate for those who work in a school or office with a more casual dress code.
