As a rule, I rarely wear skirts. Except once a week to church. Although it can be fun to dress up every once and a while, dressing down is more my style and even when I pull out a skirt- I really enjoy being comfortable. I love a good pencil skirt and knit ones are even better. Which is why I was so happy to find out about my friend Meg’s new company- Color Me Apparel. Color Me Apparel is all about comfortable pencil skirts and tees and coming soon-dresses as well!
Having launched our own business last year, I have a huge respect for anyone who chases after a dream and works so hard to make it happen. Meg has done a great job and obviously worked so hard on her website, packaging, patterns and products. Unlike some other knit skirts that I’ve grabbed on a deal site or two, this Gray Leopard Print Pencil Skirt fits really well. It’s not too tight or too loose. It’s also lined and the waist is reinforced. It really is well made and looks great. This is even the kind of skirt that I’d consider throwing on my Converse with and running out the door. I’m all about items I can dress up or down (Hello! Our leather jewelry!) and these skirts definitely fit that.
One other detail to Color Me Apparel that I love, but doesn’t exactly apply to me- is that not only can you buy knit skirts in your size, you can get a matching one for your little girl. How cute would this leopard print be in mini size?

Are you a skirt wearer? Do you wear them for work? For play? Just for you?
