I picked up this skirt at the LOFT Outlet just before Christmas and I'm so glad I did. On the way home I couldn't stop thinking of fun ways to style it, and this is one of my favorites so far (see how I wore it on Christmas here). I've been wanting a colored tweed skirt for ages (I would link to an early wishlist post, but I'll spare your senses). This one is ideal because it's got a whole slew of jewel tones, perfect for pulling out different pops of color. This time I paired it with my favorite teal blouse, which made me feel super effortless.

I love that this skirt looks great with a light blouse, but can also be worn with a thicker sweater or a button down. The trick is tucking your top into your tights. No bunching! No loose tucks! Smoothing powers!

How do you want to see me style this skirt next? I already have an outfit in my queue for the next time I wake up late and flustered, but I love hearing how y'all would style things I own!

P.S. Thanks for all the sweet words on yesterday's post! Y'all are the best always.


  1. I want this skirt! so cute + perfect for work. Must.Find.Loft.Outlet.ASAP!

    xo, Maddy


  2. Nicole, you look great and so put together, as per usual. (I totally wanted to say "as per yooj" but how do you even spell that? yewg, usge, usjj? idk) Love that outfit! Have a great day. :D


  3. this teal color is beyond perfect on you. And it makes such a good combo with your skirt!

  4. This outfit looks so perfectly polished! I can't decide which outfit I like better between this and the way you wore it for Christmas. I'd like to see you pair it with a blazer maybe?

  5. so glad you mentioned the blazer! i actually took photos of the christmas outfit and felt like it needed something to go on the blog, and wondered about my navy blazer! will be trying that asap and hopefully showing it soon!

  6. I have been on the hunt for a nice tweed skirt forever! All the ones I'd try on were always so itchy, haha. I could see yours being styled with a gingham print or a cropped sweater! :)

    Have a great day, love!

  8. This skirt looks IMMACULATE on you!! Love your waves, too!

  9. this skirt has a fantastic lining and the tweed is really soft. not one bit itchy! love the idea of gingham (when don't i?)!

  10. I LOVE this outfit, Nicole!! Seriously, I'm going to copy it for work next week! So stinking cute!

  11. I LOVE your tweed skirt!! It looks like it fits you perfectly, and I love how well it pairs with the teal...though I'm sure you have other fun ideas for outfits!


    Something About That

  12. What a fun outfit, Nicole! I really like the way this lighter blouse and "heavier" skirt balance each other out (also, you look super long and lean!!). I think this skirt would look cute "dressed down" with a denim jacket or some kind of vest!

  13. This is one of my favorite outfits you've ever posted. LOVE!
