Coral (or any pink-orange color?) is my favorite color to wear. I bought this skirt at a Goodw*ll, and it has some cool detailing up by the waist and it has pockets (yesss!!) These are some of the ways that I wear it. If you are not so into the high waisted deal, a lot of these tips would work with a different waistline as well. If you don't like the extra bulk this skirt has at the hip area, just find one with a smoother waistline, without those pleats. Also, look for one in a color you wear a lot, so it will go with most things in your closet! I love vintage and I'm a sucker for (almost) anything with a high waist.
Wear It with a Blazer
Here's what I wore to church yesterday. I like that the blazer and skirt are both structured, but while the skirt is vintage, the blazer is modern.

Wear It with something Tough
I love pairing something ladylike with something tough like a motorcycle jacket.
|See, I'm tough!|
Wear It Sweet
Paired with a slouchy cardigan and flats.
|Cardigan, AE. Shoes, urban outfitters|
Here it is with a grandpa cardigan and comfy flats!
|Both sweater and shoes are from Target a few seasons ago, I think|
Wear It Like a Punk
The stripes and sneakers tie in a little bit of edge and keep it casual.
|Tee, thrifted. Scarf and shoes, old|
|See, I'm rockin! Right? ;)|
Wear It Mod
I'm just crazy for these stripes!

Wear It Like a Lady
I love this skirt paired with a chambray and pearls! The pearls are wrapped 3 times and the shirt is buttoned all the way up and tucked in, with the sleeves rolled up.

And here it is with the necklace wrapped twice and the shirt is tied at the waist!
What color would you wear? Do you favor the high-waisted pencil skirt, or do you rock a more modern low-waisted A-line?
