J. Crew Pencil Skirts

Hi Everyone!

By now, you know that I LOVE J. Crew Pencil Skirts!  Here's the link to a blog post in which I proclaim my love for pencil skirts.  So, today, based on comments from my recent pencil skirt posts, I thought that I'd show pictures of my pencil skirt collection.  I'm almost embarrassed to admit how many J. Crew pencil skirts I own, but hey, I'm among friends, so here it goes:


Most of my No. 2 Pencil Skirts in Double-Serge Wool are near the back in this picture:



I really need to reorganize my closet, so pardon the mess!  I'm hoping to find slimmer pant/skirt hangers that will make hanging skirts less cumbersome.

There you have it, I LOVE my pencil skirts!  Do you love one clothing item more than the other?  Do tell!

Also, I'm super grateful to My4Boys of the wonderful blog Tweed and Toile and Ina of the wonderful blog Ina in Wonderland for awarding me the Sunshine Award.  Both of you ladies are SUPER sweet!  I will post my responses and blog picks shortly!

Thanks for stopping by; I really appreciate you being here!!!

  5. Another pencil skirt lover checking in here... I love your collection, very colorful. I'm curious, when did you start collecting these beauties? Do you always buy new from J.Crew or do you ever hang out on the JCA Weekly Exchange or ebay?

    I find that if you love these skirts they are very addictive but I'm not ready to join a 12-step program just yet. LOL

    1. xoxo: You have an amazing collection of pencil skirts too! I'm SO glad that I'm not alone! It's interesting, I really didn't start wearing J. Crew pencil skirts until 2008, which means that, sadly, I missed out on a lot of great prints. I purchased the 2008 version of the vibrant flame double serge wool, and I was hooked after that! I've been stalking the website and talking to my online personal shopper about pencil skirts that come in a size 14 ever since.

      Most often, I purchase the skirts new; however, I search the JCA exchange and eBay regularly for styles that I've missed over the years. And, you're SO right, these skirts are addictive. Like you, I'm so not ready to join a 12-step program yet, LOL!!!

      Thanks SO much for being here!

  7. LOL, what a great collection!! I also have a very large J. Crew pencil skirt collection - it's probably my favourite item from J. Crew, along with the striped tops.

  8. I love your post, I am probably the only one here who does love JCrew but does not own any pencil skirt (simply because I'm a SAHM currently) but I completely love your collection. My closet is super, duper tiny so I'm quite limited on what I can buy and store. My biggest weakness though is jeans (I probably have a dozen pair) but it's something I wear at least 3x a week if not more.

    1. Joelle: Thanks SO much!!! I totally hear you; I often think about where I'm going to wear my skirts in the summer when I'm not teaching. This summer, I'm challenging myself to get dressed in a skirt daily even though I'm not going into the classroom. And, I so need to find the perfect jeans. I think that I'd collect jeans if I could find the perfect pair!

      Thanks SO much for being here!

  9. LOVE this! I count at least 4 that I also own! I just think it is so cool that you "own" your love and completely embrace it. I really like my pencil skirts as well - they make work dressing more interesting than the typical suit option. I also love your colour savvy!

    1. WMM: Thanks SO much!!! Which 4 skirts do you own too???? And, thanks so much for your comment about "owning" my love. I just think that it's so important to be open and honest, even when it's tough. I'm a pencil skirts girl through and through. They're the first thing I look for in the J. Crew catalogs, LOL!

      Thanks SO much for being here!

  10. Ha Ha Ha!!! As I looked at your pics I went "check, check, check" at the skirts also hanging in my closet. I'm right there with you on the pencil skirt collection/addiction. I counted recently and I have over 40 pencils. Now, everytime I buy one I scold myself. I do not need another pencil skirt, but I will not stop buying them anyway. Oh well;) I LOVE them. They are my signature, for sure.

    1. Hollylovescrew: LOL!!!!! It's too funny that you were going "check, check, check"!!! I LOVE it! I hear you about not needing another pencil skirt. I'm glad to know that I'm not alone. J. Crew just makes the most beautiful pencil skirts; the colors are amazing, and the fit is outstanding. I've yet to find another retailer who even comes close.

  14. What a great collection. I think it's smart to collect an item that works so well, these skirts always look terrific on you.
    I just bought the neon tweed pink with my rewards card to wear with my flame orange sweaters, thanks for posting a real life picture of it, it helped me decide! :)
