An Ode to J Crew Pencil Skirts

For those that celebrated Mother's day, I hope you had a beautiful day.  I did run the Tinkerbell 1/2 marathon and had a blast.  I will share more about this next week, I am tired from waking up at 3 am and just not functioning enough to write about it.

If I had a way with words, I would have written a poem about my love for J Crew pencil skirts.  However, I was not gifted with the talent of putting thoughts eloquently to paper so I am going to list my reasons.  
So here are my reason for my love for J Crew pencil skirts:

1. They cut of the pencil skirt is flattering for my body shape.  I love wearing pencil skirts for work because they are a good for my office.  They are appropriate and they make me feel feminine.  I guess that really goes for all brands of pencil skirts.

From a J Crew perspective, their skirts are cut in the right length for me and the fit is not too fitted so they are totally professional.  I know when I buy the No 2. pencil skirt, I know what to expect.

2.  I love the unexpected details.  The stripe skirt has a frayed hem, how fun is that!  I recently ordered this scallop skirt with grommets and can't wait to wear it.  Both of these skirts have details that are fun but not over the top.

3.  They make the best prints.  When I first started shopping at J Crew, it was the prints that really drew me in.  I talked about back in 2012 in this post.  I miss this skirt and holding onto it and working my way into getting my body back into it.

Since I work in a conservative office, the fun prints really help to add a little personality.

I could probably go on as to why I love them but I think I will stop here.  I know that I don't need any more pencil or any other type of skirts since I have more than one person will ever need.  Now if J Crew can stop making great prints, it may ease my addiction.
