So tbh - please read with a 90s Valley Girl accent for dramatic effect - I did not have the mindset to write a little Dr. Seuss-ish poem with this outfit. My brain was on full meltdown. Why? Because it's a fucking Wednesday and my mind is fried. Humpday is like that girlfriend that gets way too sloppy drunk everytime you go out. At first, it's like HEY GIRL LET'S DRANK. Then it's like, ugh can I please throw your ass in a cab and get rid of you? But my brain is also kaput because today is the day before Thanksgiving and the only thing my mind can visualize is scarfing down turkey in a candlelit room with Marvin Gaye playing in surround sound. Yes. I'm fantasizing about making love to turkey. I'm also sexualizing and objectifying turkeys across America, but they are just too beautiful that I can't help myself. Gobble gobble.
OK. Now that I sound like your kooky aunt who shares a one-bedroom apartment with 26 Siamese kittens, let me get back to why I'm feelin' this outfit for today. First off, this ain't your grandma's tweed! This Sonia Rykiel tweed skirt skims the thigh in that youthful Clueless way but the metallic thread and safety pin embellishment gives it a punky edge. It's also 40 percent off right now in Net-a-Porter's MASSIVE I FOUND JESUS sale! I paired it with art-deco Valentino sandals - I know open-toe is a no-go this time of year but brave the cold for the sake of making your co-workers jealous af. Layer some simple silver necklaces and a sleek bag from Zara and this is quite the look for strutting through city streets. And since summer is dead, you may want to pair this outfit with a leather jacket to stave off the chill. This one from Zara is under $200 bucks but this one from BLK DNM is all I want for Christmas - can I get a real quick AMEN for Mariah Carey here, people!? - and it's $895.
