(Video) Classic Fashion Over 40/How I Styled A White Pencil Skirt…With A Floral Peasant Top, White Strappy Sandals, and a Yellow Bag

Fashion-Over-40-Over-50-How-To-Style-A-White-Pencil-Skirt-And-Peasant-Top (1)

(ABOVE) This white Ann Taylor pencil skirt is a favorite.  It’s such a clean, simple style. I like how it contrasts with the soft, oversized Cabi peasant top and Talbots yellow pebbled-leather bag.

I’ve had this sheer floral peasant top for about five years.  It’s quite oversized, which makes it cool and comfortable for summer, but it can be a bit overwhelming on me if I don’t pair it with something much slimmer on the bottom.

Enter the white pencil skirt.  It’s such a terrific staple, because it goes with so many tops of varying proportions.  I’ve had this one from Ann Taylor for several years, and it was just what my floral top needed to give it some polish.

Luckily, both are classics, so if you like the look there are plenty of similar options this spring for you to choose from. ~Janis Lyn Johnson

      Hi, Rose! Thank you so much for your compliments! I’m sorry all my pictures are not easier to find. The good news is, that everything in Pinterest is on my blog. You can find all my fashion posts most easily by clicking on “My Personal Style” on the upper navigation/menu bar. Or, scroll down to “Archives”, and there you’ll see all the months I have been posting photographs and videos, beginning with last August 2015. You can find everything there, too. Please let me know if this helps. Thank you for liking my blog and commenting!! ~Janis
