Growing up, no one ever mistook me for a tomboy.  Nevertheless, I do like to occasionally dabble in menswear-inspired fashion.  Take this skirt, for instance.  It’s made from the loveliest mini-check tweed and reminds me a little of one of my husband’s blazers.  I was eyeing it for over a month when I finally scooped it up at my local J. Crew for almost half off the original price.  After that, it was a no-brainer for me to pair it with soft angora-blend sweater and sleek ankle boots.
