Remixing teal + tweed

I have definitely been enjoying remixing my new teal overcoat. And although this outfit is a bit old, it’s still chilly up here in the PNW!

I haven’t worn this tweed, pleated pencil skirt in quite a while — the last time it was featured on the blog was in 2013 (whaaaaa?!). I actually wasn’t sure it would still fit me (I’ve gained a few pounds the past couple of years), but it does! I do have to admit, however, that the skirt does fit tighter and sits higher on my waist now, but I’m glad to still be able to get some use out of this classic design.

I also liked how you still got a peek at the skirt pleats underneath my teal overcoat.

A note about my accessories. Last year, when I shared my necklace extender trick (courtesy of my blogger pal Erin @ Loop Looks), a reader shared a comment about how to turn a charm bracelet into a necklace by attaching it to a plain chain. So I took my mom’s silver charm bracelet and turned it into a necklace!

    That overcoat is every bit of fabulous! The color is perfect with the tweed skirt.

    Also I’m digging that you post the weather and where you’re wearing your outfits – so helpful, especially now that I’m teaching again and have to dress accordingly.

      Thanks, Daenel! And thank you SO MUCH for including how you appreciate the details about the weather and where I’m wearing outfits. I’ve gone back and forth on whether or not I should provide that much info — like “Is it too much?” and “Will anyone care?” thoughts running through my head — so I really appreciate getting your positive feedback about that. 😀

      And outfits for teaching can be tricky — as you know! For me, it comes down to footwear. I move A LOT when I’m teaching — all librarians actually move a lot, as you know!, cuz you gotta go to where the patrons are at while on the Ref Desk or while teaching — so footwear always comes first. And then the weather, and then whatever I’m feeling, like color- or texture-wise. But there is no shortage of examples of “teaching outfits” on my blog, hah! 😉
