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.

Outfit Details

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.

Victoria Beckham x Target Fuchsia Pants + Tweed Jacket

This is the second time I feature these pants for the blog and I am shooting for three so that I may feature them on my THREEMIX segment. I try to get the most out of purchases and I like to wear them at least three times and styled differently. I will admit, these pants are not the best quality and I think the next time I wear them, I will be retiring them. The inner thigh fabric is beginning to wear out and that is not a good look. This is a bit disappointing considering the pants are not even a year old and have only been worn a handful of times.

Outfit Details

Considering we are running on the Christmas high, I wanted one last outfit to celebrate the ending of the season with lots of vibrant colors. Usually when you think of winter, you don’t think pink, green and blue unless you’re decorating your Christmas tree. However, I LOVE color and wearing dark colors all season long are a bit of a bore to me. Once I pulled this blazer out of my closet, I knew that I wanted this outfit to be a complete standout from the sea of dark shades. That is why I decided to wear the Victoria Beckham x Target Fuchsia pants with my metallic blue heels that perfectly matched the blazer. In order to avoid a color clash I kept my accessories “matchy matchy” by wearing my brand spanking used, newly thrifted Kate Spade quilted purse and a pair of fuchsia bedazzling earrings.

Side Note: Finding a similar jacket at an affordable price was nearly IMPOSSIBLE.

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.
