Black and Grey Office Pencil Skirt Outfits With Lilac Polene Numero Neuf Mini Bag

Just like last week, sharing a couple more neutral black and grey outfits I wore into the office. Paired both of these grey pencil skirts with some black tees and then added a little colour with my lilac purple Polene Numero Neuf mini bag.

What I wore:

Necklace: thrifted purple wooden bead statement necklace
Tee: thrifted Kmart short sleeve cotton modal tee in black
SkirtAtmos&Here grey marle jersey pencil skirt
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
Bracelets: the usual
BagPolene numero neuf mini in textured mauve 

Why I wore it:

It was nice wearing this stretchy knit pencil skirt again! It was a firm staple pre-pandemic, and being a nice stretchy jersey it's incredibly comfortable to wear. Don't know why it hasn't hit 30 wears yet! I am starting to delve into the "workwear" area of my wardrobe more often with dressing for the office now so hopefully it will hit that figure soon. It goes well with anything, but keeping it simple for this day at work I wore it with the plain black tee (an opshop find) and a little matchy-matchy with the black Converse too.

Although the mauve Polene numero neuf mini bag is not quite the same shade of lilac as the statement necklace, I really like the two accessories together and the little extra colour they added to this otherwise neutral monochromatic outfit.

Last worn: black modal tee, lilac statement necklace, grey jersey pencil skirt, black Converse, Polene Numero Neuf mini bag.

Why I wore it:

Incredibly similar outfit to the one above, just with slightly messier hair as my straightener broke that morning which is not ideal when you're already pushed for time to get out the door! Much like the grey jersey pencil skirt above, this textured Target pencil skirt is becoming a staple and I feel I almost wear it weekly! It's great for in the office and I know I'll continue to wear it as the weather cools as it's a lovely thick cosy textured fabric.

I kept the necklace matching the colour scheme of my outfit this time with the black and silver necklace, but still had my little lilac Polene numero neuf mini bag for a touch of colour. It just works so well in a neutral outfit like the two in these posts!

Last worn: black v-neck tee, clover necklace, textured pencil skirt, Adidas Superstar sneakers, Polene Numero Neuf mini bag (above).

  1. Your hair looks good but I am sorry to hear that your straightener broke. What a pain! I am loving these looks you've posted the last few weeks with your pencil skirt. Simple and polished. I would wear that time and time again. Have a good week ahead.

  2. Nice neutrals. I was just talking about interview wear with students today, and those outfits would be perfect :)

  3. Both pencil skirts are gorgeous! I love that they can be worn with so many different pieces. And that mauve purse is stunning. What a beautiful colour <3
    the creation of beauty is art.

  4. Love your pink necklace in the first outfit.

  5. Your hair looks so pretty worn wavy, maybe that straightener broke for a reason? Great work outfits, Mica - this is how we do business casual now! I wish my coworkers would take notes from you!

  6. That bag is so pretty! You have inspired me to get out a bag I have in a similar color. It really goes with so much! Great outfits!
