I'm loving the AW trend for mustard yellow, but being of the 'English Rose' variety (read: pale, very pale), I can't really wear it anywhere near my skin. That's where this great pencil skirt from asos comes in. With tights and a top, I get to wear this fun and bright colour without looking ever so slightly jaundice.
I'm really into mixing pencil skirts with a slightly grungy outfit, so as not to look too prim or secretarial. Teaming a pencil skirt with a baggy tee and shoe boots is one of my favourite pencil skirt outfit combos. To add a bit of cuteness to this look, I added in some Pamela Mann sheer heart ankle socks from MyTights.com (Fearne Cotton's a fan of them, too!). They kindly sent them to me to try, and I really love them. Although the hearts show up better against skin (see below), I love them layered over my black tights.
