I recently saw Extra Petite (another look here) and Petite Little Girl wear their cardigans tucked into a skirt and I thought that was such an innovative idea. I finally decided to give it a try today.

I think it works well when the skirt has volume but I remain suspicious that my pencil skirts will conceal the layers underneath.

Tank: Abercromie & Fitch (high school old)
Cardigan: Ann Taylor Solid Merino V-Neck Cardigan
Skirt: H&M (apparently on sale for $7/$10!)

And after much thought I have decided to give in and order the J. Crew Double Serge Pencil Skirt (see it on Callandra, Kileen, a.fashion.deliberation and Jean). I got it in vintage wisteria (size 00) and bronzed ochre (size 00P). Since they are on sale I suppose it’s only fair that I shell out for alterations. I am praying that the 00 will only require a hem.
