White Denim Pencil Skirt for Summer

Well, friends, we made it to Friday. Today I’m styling a white denim pencil skirt for summer.

Today is also the day we officially enter the yellow phase of reopening here in my corner of Pennsylvania. While the guidelines are still quite limiting, it’s progress, and I’ll take it! (The yellow phase is one of three phases — green, yellow, and red — that our governor established to guide the reopening process across the state.)

I found this skirt at Banana Republic, and I love how the exposed button fly updates this classic wardrobe piece. (They also have a blue jean version.)

This skirt also has a 7″ center back vent for ease of movement, and the 23″ length hits me right above the knee. The fabric is a thick cotton/tencel/elastane blend, so it has a good bit of stretch and a refined look about it.

It runs true to size, and it comes in a wide range of sizes including tall and petite. It’s also on sale for $55 right now.

I paired my white denim skirt with this pretty floral henley tee from LOFT, and I really like the combination of the feminine floral print with the more tailored skirt.

My top is low inventory, but you may be able to snag one if you act fast. They also have this one in a different print, and it comes in 4 solid colors as well. All are 50% off today with code LOVE.

I added a delicate layered necklace, and I really like how it fills the shallow v-neckline without overwhelming it.

I also added these small silver hoops from Talbots, but I’m sorry to say, both my earrings and necklace are sold out. You may be able to find the necklace on eBay.

These sunglasses were a Shopbop sale purchase earlier in the season. I love the colorful tortoiseshell frames, and the square shape is fun for a change.

They’re hard to see in the grass, but I was wearing beige Nine West slides. These sandals are sleek and right on trend with the square toe, and they’re also surprisingly easy to walk in.

Mine are from last season, but I actually like this year’s version with the metal discs even better, and they’re a great price right now. (Use code EXTRA40 for an extra 40% off at checkout.)

This outfit is a really nice alternative to shorts for those who don’t care for them, or for anyone looking to add some variety to your summer wardrobe.

If you’re worried about chafing or sweating through the skirt, these lightweight moisture-wicking slipshorts are the perfect solution. I wear the medium, for reference.
