BLOUSE: Marshalls//SKIRT: Marshalls//FRING BRACELET: Kendra Scott//NECKLACE: Athra Luxe//PURSE: Zac Posen (Tjmaxx)//SHOES: Nine West Outlet
For this week's date night, I decided to wear a mixture of menswear and luxe feminine pieces, for a unique combination. This militant inspired shirt is one of my favorite pieces for fall because I wear it with a variety of different bottoms, such as leggings, jeans, and in this case, a pleated circle skirt. The olive color is perfect for fall and one of my personal favorite colors/tones to wear during this season. To dress up the otherwise casual shirt, I selected this ultra feminine skirt to pair it with. It has some shimmer detailing, making the gold stand out more. It's also in a lady-like tweed fabric, which I love. I was planning on wearing a plain nude shoe, but decided last minute that these two toned half nude, half black pumps, were more interesting. Plus, I've kind of neglected them (they were all the way in the back of my closet!). To further enhance the feminine feel, I wore this Zac Posen purse, which I recently scored at Tjmaxx. It's Eddie's early wedding anniversary gift (our anniversary is Oct. 7th). I love everything about it. The shape, bow detailing, color, fabric, and oh yes, the designer of course! I happen to be a big fan of Zac Posen's work and the opportunity to purchase his purse at the Tjmaxx I've been going to lately is a somewhat rare occurrence. I did spot a black purse about a year ago and still regret not getting it, so I couldn't live with that feeling again by not getting this one!
Overall, I love the way the outfit came together. The dominating theme is more feminine, with a hint of a menswear touch. What do you all think?
RECREATE THE LOOK?
If you're hips are very wide (pear shape) and you don't feel comfortable further exaggerating the width, I'd suggest avoiding a skirt that is this style, a combination of a circle skirt and tweed. Tweed is a bit stiff, making it flare out without the ability to alter it the way you'd like. Instead, go for skater skirt in a nude or beige color to accomplish the same look ;)
Thanks for stopping by!
