Tweed two ways

Going into the new year, I’m still loving the tweed trend. The only tweed I don’t like is when there are colors I don’t like in the pattern. This blue tweed jacket is becoming a staple piece in my wardrobe. I wore it here one way. Today I’m going to show you how I styled it another way.

My son found this wonderful bridge to take photos at. This time of year it’s a bit shady and cool in this spot but it looked like there was a park nearby that would be nice to visit on a warm sunny day.

Please tell me warm sunny days are coming soon! It is rainy and miserable in Oregon right now. But we had sun a few days ago, and I know it will return! The only problem is that when it returns it get really cold and windy out. I still think I’d rather have the sun than rain right now.

So, this time I wore the tweed with a cute pleated skirt from the Loft, black boots with a cute chain detail, sparkly tights – because you know I love me a little bit of sparkle! On the top I had a metallic top with a rose pattern, the blue tweed jacket, black cat eye sunglasses and metallic pave ball drop earrings. A fun look you could wear to the office, to church, or for a day on the town.

Here is a photo of how I styled the tweed before. I do love those shiny pants. So wonderful!

Metallic Pleats and scallops

Silver and gold metallic heels

Much to my surprise, I got on here to do another blog post and they totally changed the outline so I can’t even figure out what to do. Holy crapoli! I hate it when they do that. I decided to do what anyone should do in my situation, just dive in and attempt to figure it all out as I go. Bear with me. *(I had to get help disabling Gutenberg and returning my blog back to the classic editor layout I’m used to.)

This week, I’ve combined two trends I’ve been loving lately. One, pleats: mostly I’ve been seeing them in skirts, but this top is pretty fun as well. Metallic. Fuchsia. Pleats + bling buttons = a win. In my book.

This skirt is a classic from Ann Taylor Loft a few years ago. I love the embroidery near the bottom and along the  edges. Plus the uneven scalloped edge.

Everything else, I already owned.

Sometimes I like to twirl. This cute little purse is a vintage one and the strap was loose, so at some point the whole thing went flying as the strap came off on one side. Wah. Wah. Wah.

I’m trying to fix it. ^ I couldn’t do it on the fly.

I gave up on the cute little purse. I was just holding it in this photo. Ha. Sometimes fashion falls apart on us. It’s all good.

We also got to watch a heron flying over head and land in a tree nearby. He stayed there the whole time we were taking photos, then flew off just before we left. I missed seeing him fly away as I was probably busy trying to fix my purse. Or hunt for the pin that had been holding one of the straps in place so I could pin in back together. (A good hint that your vintage purse needs fixing is when you see a pin stuck in it to hold the strap on. Ignore that sign at your own peril… Hahaha.)
