I love to play down a skirt with trainers — and stay comfortable at the same time! This outfit is lowkey business and highkey comfort, matching a pinstripe tweed skirt with a sweater and trainers.
If you think tweed can be a tad frumpy and stale, look for tweeds in unusual colours, as they make the fabric less predictable and far younger, just like you! This grey skirt has blue pinstripes, which makes it easy to dress down with denim and other blue and navy tones, while it still can be dressed up with a white or pale blue shirt and black heels.
Suggestions for non-frumpy tweed skirts that will rock your (young) world is this red and white kilt style from MiuMiu (expensive, but on sale) and this mid priced red mini skirt from Philosophy (heavily reduced). If colour isn’t your thing, go for a tweed skirt with unusual detailing — I’m head over heels for this fringed and slightly sparkly skirt from Milly!
Do you have an unusual tweed garment that you love to break out in the autumn and winter? Maybe something in pink or purple, the tweed colours I secretly dream of finding in a non-Barbie presentation?!? Please let me know!
This has been a busy week finishing off my Christmas gifts, so let’s pretend that this post came out on Wednesday, shall we? Tomorrow I’ll post DIY ideas for how to make your own gift tags. They’re just as easy to make as my Christmas cards. On Monday, Wednesday and Friday of next week you’ll see all my holiday party outfits. I’m heading home to Bergen and Stanghelle on Tuesday morning and I’m ecstatic about celebrating the holiday with those I hold dear, especially my boyfriend. I miss him loads… The weather forecast is nothing to shout out about, though. Rain Every.Single.Day for two weeks. Oh well, nobody’s ever gone to Bergen for the weather.
