Plain V-Neck Tees With Textured Pencil Skirts, Statement Necklaces and Rebecca Minkoff Regan Bag | Weekday Wear Linkup

A pencil skirt and tee is a great office outfit! If you work in a business casual office like mine, it fits in with everyone else wearing jeans during the week. If your office is a little more formal, you might be able to wear this for casual Friday. You can always throw a blazer on top too if you need to be a little more dressed up.

I paired two of my fave v-neck tees with some textured pencil skirts and statement necklaces for simple summer office style.

What I wore:

black v-neck tee, pink polka dot pencil skirt business casual summer outfit Regan bag | awayfromblue

Rebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon with llama charm and pink polka dot skirt | awayfromtheblue

NecklaceEye Candy LA 'Sasha' statement necklace
TeeAtmos & Here black essential v-neck tee
Skirt: Cotton On 'Mica' mesh spot skirt in dusty pink
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats (also available in silver)
BagRebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon

Why I wore it:

This polka dot pencil skirt is an old favourite, and I usually end up pairing it with black, such a simple choice to match the fuzzy dots on the mesh. This plain black tee which has been a frequent go to since I bought it seemed like a nice option that I hadn't tried before.

I added the statement necklace to dress my outfit up a little. It was a busy day of meetings and presenting, so I added a blazer in my bag too, although it was much too hot for me to wear it in the photos that morning! I was pleased when my necklace got a few compliments during the day, the plain black tee really made it pop! The work day flew by too which was nice.


Last worn: plain black tee, statement necklace, pink polka dot pencil skirt, black ballet flats, Rebecca Minkoff Regan bag.

What's In My Bag: Rebecca Minkoff Regan

TeeAtmos & Here white essential v-neck tee (new purchase)
SkirtAsos blue textured lace pencil skirt
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs metallic mouse flats
BagRebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon

Why I wore it:

As you can see, I went and bought the white version of this tee since I loved the black so much! đŸ˜‚ Instead of sizing down like I did with the black tee, I stuck with my regular size in this, hoping if it was a more relaxed fit it would be a little less sheer. I didn't have to worry though. This shirt isn't completely opaque but you can't see a nude bra under it so I'm happy. I did contemplate exchanging it (The Iconic have an awesome returns policy) but I decided to keep this size anyway. I do think it looked a little more casual than the outfit above though as the tee is more relaxed. I kept my blazer on for most of the time in the office, although I did take it off for our team lunch to enjoy the sunshine!

I really liked the plain white tee with the blue lace skirt, I've worn this skirt frequently with white tops before. I did feel it was lacking a little something though so I added the green necklace for a little pop of colour. My nails were green too, to match the Instagram style prompt of the day, but as I didn't take a closeup pic you'll just have to imagine it!


Last worn: green necklace, blue lace pencil skirt, gold mouse flats, Rebecca Minkoff Regan (above). First time I've worn the tee as it's a recent purchase.

V-Neck Tees Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A plain tee is a staple in many wardrobes, especially a mum wardrobe where you need simple, practical and machine washable pieces! If you have a casual business environment in the office, you can make your tee do double duty by wearing it with a pencil skirt. Feel free to cover it up with a blazer or keep it to casual Fridays if your office is more formal.

  9. I do agree. A nice tee and a pencil skirt is a great outfit combo, especially when you add a blazer to it. Offices are often air-conditioned so it can get a bit chilly in them even in summer.

    Both outfits are lovely. The black top works great with that polka dot skirt and that necklace really pops out against the black. The other outfit is also lovely, love the combo of light tee and a pattered pencil skirt. You look fantastic!

  44. I somehow don't have a single pencil skirt in my closet anymore. I used to have a bunch of them and then, one by one, they didn't fit right anymore or developed tears and I jettisoned them and just never replaced them. I need to get my act together and get one or two because they are definitely fantastically versatile and perfect for work.

  45. You are right! Pencil skirts are perfect for the office - also when there is a more formal dresscode! I like both of your looks and I think the size of the black shirt is perfect and the size you have chosen for the white shirt, too! No wonder you got compliments for the necklace of the first look, I give you compliments for both looks!

  49. Two lovely pencil skirts, Mica! I like how you have styled up the more casual tees to suit your work environment. The second tee reads a bit too casual for me, due to the larger neckline and boxier shape, but it's still really cute on.

    I did not know you worked in IT! So do I! I actually checked my company roster, as we have offices in Australia, including one in Melbourne. Wouldn't that have been funny??
