Fall lookbook: Tips for styling pencil skirts for the office

Welcome back VersiDivas!

The second look from the Versicolor Closet x The Coco Gawdess fall lookbook video focuses on our take on the pencil skirt for work during the fall months! Delfine AKA TheCocoGawdess styled her skirt with a bodysuit and made it work appropriate by covering up with a cardigan. Listen, I need her skirt in my life! 🙂 I on the other hand decided to mix some prints and bring color to the picture in true Versicolor fashion! I mean look at my hair 🙂 

Since both the top and the skirt have black and burgundy patterns, pairing them was a safe risk to take (if there is such a thing!). If you work in a corporate environment with strict dresscode, then this may be too bold for the office but almost any look can be altered to cater to your office culture. I’m so thankful I work in a not-so-strict-on-dresscode kind of office because that would simply stifle my creative mind. I digress… To finish the look, I went with all neutral accessories from a black choker, to black heels and this super sophisticated black snake print purse from H&M .

Have you heard this song by Hillary Scott called Thy Will be done? I have been on an emotional rollercoaster this past month dealing with some personal stuff that I try not to think about by burying myself in my work but this song just does it for me… It says:

I know you’re good
But this don’t feel good right now
And I know you think
Of things I could never think about
It’s hard to count it all joy
Distracted by the noise
Just trying to make sense
Of all your promises
Sometimes I gotta stop
Remember that you’re God
And I am not
So Thy will be done

When the going gets rough and you can’t even find the words to pray, I encourage you to lay your worries down at the cross, believing that He is able to handle it all. May His will be done in our lives. Always and Forever!
