J. Crew perfect pencil skirt in nude wool

For the first 22 years of my life, I've mistakenly believed pencil skirts belonged in the realm of legal offices and awkwardly styled fashion editorials in publications aimed at middle-aged women.

Not so. Acquainted with leather and roughed up on the streets, this J. Crew version is sure to be seen again and again. It's called the 'perfect pencil skirt' for a reason.

And roughed up could well be, for I'm about to get my motorcycle licence. Years of putting up with dramatic mechanical tantrums from old four-doors has worn my patience through. I'm ready to ride. Any recommendations for a motorcycle riding course in the fine city of Denver would be much appreciated! Or any advice about riding in general. (Of course, I would never ride without full protective gear - I'll even bring back bright orange safety vests. Just following Karl Lagerfeld's advice, natch.)
