A Bohemian Pencil Skirt

I love pencil skirts.  They have this sexy, sophisticated look and show off curves so well.  The problem is that I have very few place to wear one because they do look so…put together?? Yeah, I would stick out at the local Kroger and not the way I want. Plus, let’s face it, not really my style.

Well, ideas started a-brewin when my friend Rhea gave me this skirt…

Bam! New skirt! YAY!

Ok, I laughed a little and almost took these down but left them up for amusement purposes!  I mean, how many people are really going to see this, right? 🙂
