Today's Everyday Fashion: Outfit Challenge








































I just can't resist a good outfit challenge! LOFT recently asked several bloggers including yours truly to style a winter look from their new arrivals and this is what I came up with. (I was not asked to post my look on the blog, but just thought it would be fun to share!) I took it as an opportunity to do something cold-weather for you guys since I live in Florida and don't own a ton of sweaters. (I borrowed/returned the pieces to take this picture, and will be using my gift card for other items that catch my eye throughout the year.) When I styled this look I was immediately drawn to the yellow in the skirt and shirt. They are great pieces that can be used during the warmer weather months, but also work for colder weather with tights and this thick sweater coat. I also like this look because it can easily transition from day to night and would work for many different situations. What winter occasions do you find it hardest to dress for? 

Cardigan, sweater and skirt: LOFT, borrowed (see below for links)
Tights: Hue from TJ Maxx, $5
Shoes: Steve Madden from Ross, $20

  7. You made lovely choices for your challenge. I found it challenging this year to dress for a "casual" Christmas party with colleagues.

  8. Oh la la- this looks great! Like others have said- that pencil skrt is smashing. Is it a normal pencil skirt material or a wool??

  9. Lindsey, it's not wool, but it's definitely pretty thick. Similar material to my light aqua skirt I have from LOFT, which I described as almost a neoprene!
