#OOTD: Tweed Mini Skirt

LOFT tweed skirt (clearance find, SIMILAR) + utility blouse + Cuyana bag

I don’t have a lot of skirts in my closet because they aren’t super practical for running around the flower shop all day. But when I find a cute one on clearance — like this black and white tweed number from LOFT — I can’t resist scooping it up. I thought this mini skirt would work year-round: with a white tee and sandals in the warmer months, and a sweater and black tights when the temp drops.

Today I’m wearing it with a LOFT utility blouse, one of my favorite basic staples; I buy a couple colors and/or prints each season when they go on sale.

Another day, another throw-it-over-anything utility jacket. I can’t get enough easy jackets in my closet, especially when I keep finding them for a steal at TJ Maxx. This one is tencel, too, so it’s super soft and silky.

I’m kind of loving the “mom jean” trend. I’m all about a higher rise and easy relaxed fit: more room for wine and burritos. I’ve been eyeing the ASOS ‘Farleigh’ jeans ever since Sydney started wearing them on her blog, but I don’t know if I can pull them off (I also heard you have to unbutton them to sit down, and that’s just a deal-breaker). These LOFT distressed straight crops jeans may be the next best thing.

I’m  grounding myself from buying skinny jeans for a while and looking for a few fresh styles to add to my denim stash. I was on the fence about these LOFT ‘kick crop’ jeans when I bought them back in June, but they’re really growing on me!

Lazy girl style hack: throw on a pair of leopard pumps with any super simple outfit and, voilà, you look like you tried. {wink}

I’m working on a post with my updated everyday “no makeup makeup” routine, but in the meantime, let me just tell you how much I love BareMinerals Gen Nude Matte Liquid Lip Color. The shades are all beautiful wearable nudes — no corpse lips here, thanks — that wear comfortably for hours and don’t dry out my lips like other liquid lipsticks I’ve tried. I have three shades that are on near-daily rotation, and I’m wearing ‘Swag’ here.
