Tweed Blazer = Winter Basics

It occurred to me that I have not worn this jacket this season as often as I would like. I think we all fall into the habit of wearing the same things over and over again. This season I am going to try to change that a bit by rotating things around my closet. Speaking of seasons, this is the last week of winter and I am ready for spring. Are you already spring cleaning or do you wait a few weeks after the official date? I usually change right at the beginning of every season because I like to change my color palette.

It’s been a rough few weeks and on my friday’s I like outfits that require minimal effort. I knew I wanted to wear to this tweed jacket but I wanted something simple. Since its still cold out, I decided to wear jeans and a long sleeve shirt with my black satchel. A pair of black heels and a red lip to finish off the week.

Tweed Jacket + The Pleated Dress

Yesterday I raved about how much I love Ann Taylor and today I am featuring yet another Ann Taylor favorite. I purchased this tweed blazer from last year’s fall collection but again, this is another timeless piece. I love a well constructed tweed jacket because it adds elegance and chicness to an outfit.

Outfit Details

I wanted to wear this vintage pleated dress I thrifted a few years ago, but I wanted to wear something to make it pop. As a side note, this dress is sheer so I definitely had to wear a slip underneath. While the obvious was to wear a coat or jacket, I wanted a piece that would really make this dress stand out. As I browsed through my closet, I realized that I had yet to wear this tweed sequin jacket this season so I immediately knew that this was the item that was really going to make this dress standout. The jacket has beautiful sequins throughout but the photos did not capture the beautiful detailing. However, the sequins on the jacket really makes it a standout piece. The dress has a nice “gold shimmer” undertone so I decided to pair with my bedazzled Steve Madden heels. I finished this look with a matching red lip and my black vintage eel leather purse.
