Hi guys! I hope you had a joyful (and possibly another long holiday?) weekend! I’m back to work today after a few days off and feeling pretty refreshed! Our weather hasn’t been the most cooperative lately. We had a ton of rain and wind last week into the weekend, and then it warmed up quite a bit, but got pretty windy. We picked the only free day we had to try and take some pictures. The sun and wind weren’t really on our side, so this set of photos and another are a little washed out, but hopefully you get the gist. 🙂
I couldn’t wait to share this pretty tweed skirt on the blog. I promise I’ll wear it again for you soon for an #ootd photo or flatlay (probably both) to get a better idea of colors. It has a beautiful mixture of pink, blue, black, and white tweed. The stock photo on LOFT’s website uses a dark purple sweater paired with the skirt. I was drawn to the pink hue in store, so it really can go with many colors, and not just the obvious. I loved pairing it with a light pink, but the options are really open here on color matches.
Both my sweater and skirt run a little big. I sized down one in the skirt (wearing a size 4 regular). The sweater I chose my normal size (small), but the sleeves are little long. If you are petite like me I would suggest ordering the petite size you normally wear to get the right sleeve length. I loved the sweater too much to pass it up (my local store was almost sold out), and it’s one of those sweaters you can easily throw on with jeans and sneakers also, so the generous fit didn’t bother me too much.
*size tip: I’m 5’2″ and ~130 lb. and normally wear a size XS/S on top and 28/6P on bottom.
