Need for Tweed

Here’s my only complaint with a three-day weekend: I wake up on Tuesday super confused as to what day it is and wonder why nothing got done on Monday. Then I go into full on panic mode in my head. This is when my type A side kicks in and starts reminding me that we’ve already lost a day this week and it’s GO time. Mind you this is all while I’m surfing Facebook and drinking my coffee for an extra 10 minutes than I usually do. I don’t always listen to that voice in my head. I should, but I don’t. I also don’t listen to the voice that says go back to bed. I really should start listening to myself more.

Now onto the fact that I’m wearing a metallic tweed pencil skirt. That’s right — it’s metallic and shiny and gold and it’s called ‘sparkle tweed’. You better believe my eyes lit up the minute I saw this skirt. There are two things I will never not love: anything gold and pencil skirts. When you mix them together, it’s my kryptonite. Oh, look they made a jacket in this fabric, too. Just think if you wore them together, the possibilities of being the shiniest person at work are very, very good.

  1. Dying for the skirt. And I love pairing denim with other textiles. It looks good with everything!
