Found: Denim Pencil Skirt (See Jane Find...and Wear)

Zara skirt, Gap blouse (old but similar), J Crew belt (old), Super sunglasses, J Crew pumps (similar)
Remember when I waxed poetically about this distressed, denim, pencil skirt?  I had grand plans to find a vintage one, tear it up myself, and wear it with pride.  Then, I checked the sale rack at Zara and called off the manhunt.  To avoid looking like a schoolteacher from the 80s, I wore silver pumps paired with bed head.  People at work were intrigued with the skirt yesterday; the best comment was, "your skirt is either really old or really new--which is it?"  Suffice to say, I love this skirt.

Want your own denim pencil skirt?  Similar options here, here and here (the Zara one is sold out).

Ah that skirt is perfection! I am loving lightwash denim lately--just picked up a high-waisted lightwash party skirt the other day, but I am loving the look in pencil skirt form on you!

XOXO,
Rebecca

Yay, it looks so great! I was on a similar hunt myself, but I wasn't DYING to have one, just thought it would be nice. I found mine at Marshalls, but it isn't ripped...it has a slit instead :)

I never imagined a ripped denim skirt can look so stylish! Your combination with a white blouse and silver pumps is awesome.

i have a few, older denim pencil skirts that i have been contemplating donating... now, it seems the best option is to wear them into the ground....

I LOVE this Anna! I'm so intrigued that the denim skirt trend is back (hello, where the 90s even long enough ago to come back around?!). I've yet to find one for me but this skirt looks GREAT on you girl.

I love that you made the outfit look classy instead of from the 90s! The heels were a great choice. I also love the one from Dorothy Perkins!
Cheers!

Any other shoe would have given too muh farm girl vibe. Wise choice with a lady like pump.
So happy for you that you found your jean pencil skirt soul mate. I love when that happens.
