Today we have an awesome pencil skirt (from Forever21 for $11.69) that I will show you female readers how to pair with other great, affordable items to make an affordable work day outfit. This pencil skirt is perfect because it is a great length for the work environment and adds some detail with the buttons to the side. Since it is a solid color, it can be paired with a nice top that is either solid or patterned. I decided to pair it with this mint lace top that adds a great pop of color and is a great color combination. This top is also from Forever21 on sale for $12.48. Of course, you don’t want to forget about the shoes. You want to be comfortable, so these flats for $8.99 from Wet Seal are perfect to tie the outfit together.
