Pencil skirts are gorgeous. They’re sleek, and sexy, while being totally professional and ladylike.
And I never wear them.
I never wear them because they restrict my movement, and I can’t jump or climb on things. I never wear them because I have to take tiny little steps in them, instead of sprinting for the bus or the metro doors. I never wear them because it’s hard to bend and sit, and I can’t grab five minutes of extra playtime with Baby Girl before I leave.
I guess I won’t achieve the sexy, sleek, sophisticated, and enviable look of a pencil skirt. Oh well. On the other hand, I get the shot, catch the bus, and play with Baby Girl.
Life’s a trade-off.
*Then again, there might be a day in the future that I try. Never say never, right?*

IMO, you've achieved the "sexy, sleek, sophisticated, and enviable look" without the pencil skirt.

I'm with you! Give me a skirt that allows me to move– it beats sleekness any time. And I adore how the fuller skirts look as you styled them, with layers– tee, sweater, tights & boots. Perfection!!

I love pencil shirts, but your right, they are kind of restricting. You look so cute! I love your skirt!

so in agreement – the pencil skirt is not my friend. They look hideous on me, and they are not comfortable to wear. Give me a flowing skirt anytime!

I have pencil skirts in every color almost…haha. Although the restricted leg movement doesn't bother me, I do have a pencil skirt made of a sweater material that's stretchy. A stretchy pencil skirt might work for you.
