metallic tweed & royal blue






J.Crew royal blue blouse {comes in 5 other colors!} & tweed skirt {on sale!} | sunglasses | over-the-knee boots, last year {super similar style} | watch | bracelet | earrings | ring | necklace, old {similar style} | Chanel bag {new similar style under $40} | lipstick {creme cup}, lipgloss {turkish delight}

Wow, Thursday already! These weeks are just flying by -- it seems like they go even more quickly when approaching the holidays. And, speaking of the holidays, today's metallic tweed skirt is the perfect way to get you in the holiday spirit {if you aren't already!} 

You may remember this skirt from one of my Wednesday Wishes last month, when I talked about styling silver and jewels for an everyday look. So not only can this skirt be styled for a daily look, but it's particularly festive for this time of the year! You know how I love my versatile pieces ;) This blue adds the perfect pop of color to the skirt, but the skirt can go with SO much more. There are so many colors hiding in that tweed, the possibilities are endless when it comes to styling! 

As for the sizing of the blouse and skirt, I went up one size in the blouse from what I normally wear in J.Crew's silk shirts. This blouse is definitely a little shorter than other blouses from J.Crew and I wanted to be able to wear it with pants as well, so I sized up for length {similar to the violet floral, last seen here}. When it comes to the skirt, I stuck with my normal size and it fits perfectly! I must confess that I love skirts but don't wear them that often because most of the time they are WAY too short -- it's almost as if I'm bringing back the skirts from my tennis days! But with tights and over-the-knee boots, the skirt was a good length {especially considering it's referred to as a "mini"} and I will be able to even wear it to work. 

We have a busy weekend ahead! After being sick last weekend, I have a lot of catching up to do around the house. Saturday is a race day for me and it's looking like the temperatures are going to be more November-like this weekend. It's going to be a chilly start to the race! I will also be working on some fun holiday projects for next week and into December, so stay tuned! What do you all have planned for this weekend?! Hope it's wonderful!
