outfit post: cream top, pink tweed pencil skirt, nude heels


Inspiration - Jigsaw Online

Two new purchases today! I have wanted a tweed pencil skirt forever but I have a hard time justifying spending too much for one. This one was purchased on sale from Talbots online for $34.99 - score! (I also bought the matching jacket which is a little big and needs to be tailored.)

The second new purchase in this outfit are a new pair of nude pumps! I wore my old ones with so many of my work outfits (see here) but they were really scuffed and actually had a chunk missing from wearing them to walk to work while I was in Brazil. They were a mess and  it had become embarrassing and unprofessional to wear shoes in such disrepair.

It took me forever to find the the right new pair. I was looking at cost (under $100), color (not too light or too dark) and I wanted a slight platform but nothing too tall that would make them inappropriate for work. And after three months of looking - I finally came across the perfect pair on Zappos - Nine West Fortnight. I loved them so much I bought them in both back and nude. Yay new shoes!

  1. I love this skirt! It is the perfect transition piece...kind of fall like, but still a nice light summer color :)
