Today's Everyday Fashion: Tweed Skirt

This tweed skirt is still going strong in my closet; it's the third fall/winter in a row that it's been one of my favorites! Neutrals that have a little extra something - like the marled color and the tweed texture of this skirt - really add some pizazz to an outfit. It's a great staple that's neutral enough to repeat often, while also being detailed enough to make it a star on it's own. It's the best of both worlds.

ps. If you're in the Wichita area, come check out the beauty/hair/style event I'm speaking at this Saturday at the Wichita Art Museum - it's open to the public!

Eva Mendes Fall Collection for New York & Company


Have you tried the Eva Mendes Collection at New York and Company yet? I’ve really been wanting to try it, so when ShopStyle got in touch about doing a post on her new Fall Collection – I was all for it! Everything is under $100 and there are a wide range items to choose from: shoes, jewelry, a suede coat, and tons of ladylike dresses, skirts and blouses. I had a hard time narrowing it down to a few favorites because Eva Mendes makes everything in this collection look (literally) like a million bucks. Check out some images of her wearing the collection below – I love the train theme they did and she looks gorgeous!

The first item I put in my online shopping cart was the green polka dot top that she’s wearing. I styled mine with a navy pencil skirt I’ve had for eight years, cognac pumps and a structured bag. I love tie-neck blouses and this top has that same proper, ladylike vibe. You can wear this top closed like I’m showing, or unhook the neck so that it’s more of a v-neck top with a ruffle trim.

My other two selections were the green floral skirt and orange purse. I really liked the green floral print, and I chose this skirt because of the length and the pockets. (There is also a shirt, and a maxi skirt with this same print, I love them all!) The orange purse is a great look for less to this season’s "it" bag, the $1,700 Chloe “Drew.” The Eva Mendes version is only $59.95 and also comes in cobalt blue.

I absolutely love getting dressed up and experimenting with fun new outfits but sometimes you need a day off! I never want it to feel like I'm trying too hard, and I need those relaxing outfits in between to throw on and forget about fashion for the rest of the day. This outfit is that perfect "day off" outfit for me. Laid back, easy, and cute as it is comfy!
