I noticed the BB Dakota skirt on Hautelook a couple days ago and realized that it had been awhile since I had worn mine.  Even though it's a tweed material, the skirt length is short and still not too heavy even for the summertime {well, as long as you're indoors in the A/C at least part of the day!}.  I kept my look simple but threw in a fun leopard belt.  When the animal prints come out, you know I'm ready for the weekend! 

Oh, and smokey eye makeup is a weekend must too!  :)

I attempted to use an asian Bump-It (gifted by Jessy) for my ponytail.  I need more practice...

  7. Tweed is not something I think about for summer, but the simplicity your outfit makes it look light. The touch of leopard is great. Cute outfit, Kileen!
