Colorful Tweed

This skirt.
Thiiiis skirt.
Thats why the hardest thing I had to do was return it. 
Yup, returned again. I keep striking out!!
I think this is a fantastic look for the office. Or a job interview (keeping this one in my back pocket, just in case). Its just not practical for me. I'll wear it once, maybe twice before summer and thats it. 

The shirt- despite its size (xxl) - clearly did not fit and had this funky ruched tail in the back. I had to wear a tank underneath for the pictures, there was just no getting it together. The colors and print matched so well with the skirt, I had to at least try. I also paired it with a chambray and loved it. Plus, it gave me the chance to wear these shoes I had forgotten put aside in my closet for a (long) while. 
I've seen a couple other bloggers with similar outfits and knew I had to try.

Soooo cute right?
Well, as much as it hurt me, I had to return the outfit. 
Trust me, I debated the whole ride to the store. Ask my sister. She was tired of listening. 
So I returned it for a more practical "Meg-friendly" outfit...or two. =)

What do you think? Should I have kept the skirt and looked for a new shirt? 
As you can see, I'm still torn up inside. 
Until next time you pretty little tweed love you. 


  1. very cute, but if you feel like you wouldn't get its money worth, better to return!

  4. I love the skirt, I picked up a similar one recently. I totally would have kept it...there are so many colors in it, I think it would pair well with many things!

    1. This skirt reminded me of you...your post was the reason I bought it. However, I just don't think I'm much of a skirt girl. But that could change! Thanks for stopping by Tara!

  5. Love the color combination (the pink and blues), so pretty! I would have kept the shirt! It's super versatile. You can wear it with jeans for an everyday look.

    1. Thank you Allie...blues and pinks are my favorites so you can imagine how hard it was to say goodbye!

  6. That is a super cute skirt! It's a bummer it didn't work right so you could keep it.

    1. I know, but I'd recommend everyone to try it! I liked trying something that was a little bit different for me...and I'll keep trying until I get it right!
