black & red pencil

HAPPY THANKSGIVING, my friends! this is my favorite time of the year for so many reasons... family gatherings, warm casseroles/baked goods straight from the oven, thinking of the perfect gift to get your loved ones, family gatherings! (yes, again!), sweaters, scarves, layering, boots, hot cocoa, christmas music, twinkle lights, movies by the fireplace... etc.. the list goes on. but i'll spare you my glee. i hope you have a wonderful thanksgiving spent with the people you love and care about most. eat lots, be thankful, and strategically plan how black friday is going down for you (even if that means sleep)!

i pulled out this number in excitement for the holidays -- the red pencil skirt. ladies, when you wear a pencil skirt, everyone is going to take you seriously. ok, i just made that up. but seriously though, the pencil skirt conveys you mean business. it is a professional and classy look that we all must rock! 

p.s. -- it was FREEZING for this shoot. like 30s! but... anything for the blog. <3.
