Chambray and a Pencil Skirt

J.Crew Factory chambray shirt // pearl necklace // corilynn pencil skirt // tory burch boots

I'm obsessed with Corilynn's gorgeous skirts. They are perfect for that "business casual" look - what other pencil skirt can you pair with riding boots and a chambray top and it still looks amazing?! You could definitely dress this up for a corporate job or down for a more casual look. I am also head over heels for Corilynn's white tulle skirt... that one is next on my list!

On another note, I have been struggling a lot lately in my personal life. Although everything about my life may seem  "perfect" on my blog, I can assure you that it's not! Sometimes my life feels like a huge mess. I finally made a decision tonight that I have been really torn about... and it will be a huge life change. The only thing I have right now is trust that God will take care of me. I know this all seems very vague, but I will be sharing some more details soon. In the meantime, please say a little prayer that I have the strength I need to make it through the next month!

  3. You always do a wonderful job incorporating your riding boots into different outfits. I just now am getting into the riding boot theme, but instead of going shopping I pulled out my black leather pair from my horse show days. Love them with flannel! http://poshpurpose.blogspot.com/2013/12/new-years-eve-bonfire.html

    You have prayers from the ladies at Posh Purpose and Joshua 1:9. Gotta love that Old Testament.

  29. Good luck with the big decision you just made! I'm several years older than you and I still don't have everything figure out....so don't stress! Life is about experiences and making mistakes and learning from them! :-)
