Denim and My Favorite Tweed Jacket

Layfayette148NY tweed Jacket

Hello Ladies

I ran across this tweed jacket on Ebay, and ย just feel in love with all of the colors as I knew they would compliment my red hair.

Layfayette148NY tweed Jacket

Ok. Now mark this moment in history.

You don’t often see it.

Yes. I am wearing pants. Jeans. Boyfriend jeans. ย You know me, and know how much I love my skirts and dresses, but occassionally I want to wear some loose fitting jeans. As much as I would like to wear form fitting jeans, I just can’t, so boyfriend jeans are the next best thing for me. I am also a fan of the destructed look with intentional holes where they are.

This is a casual look made a bit more dressy by the tweed jacket, the shining of the oranges, ย rust, olive, yellows and browns in the jacket by LaFayette148 NewYork. This jacket can be warn with many things in my wardrobe, but dressing up some boyfriend jeans was something I had in mind. My slightly longer rust colored peplum shell underneath, and Born oxfords add to this dressier look, ย and make it more fun than a mere t-shirt and jeans.

I am a fan of blazers, jackets and feel that they can really make a statement for one’s look. Also look at the possibility when you are looking for a tweed jacket for versatility. Can I pair this with many of the skirts or pants in my wardrobe? Do the colors work on my skin tone? These are some of the considerations I make when choosing a garment.

So, there you have it. Jess in pants. Jeans, for that matter. It may be awhile before you see it again. ๐Ÿ™‚ Hope you enjoyed the styling!

Have a great day’

Jess xo

    Oh Jess,
    a great look on you! Love the destroyed jeans, and I know certain denim styles can be uncomfortable.
    Love the tweed jacket, i can see it with so many things in your closet. I love the way you styled this: layered to perfection. Also, love the cameos!

      Thanks Nora, there are hook closures I could have used to make it lay more flat, but at times I like to “dress it up ” a bit with a vintage pin. I love your jackets, so I take this as high praise. Glad you like the look!! xo

      Hi Jofie, thanks so much for stopping by! No, I collect brooches ( vintage) and sometime will close the jacket by adding a vintage pin. Glad you liked it! xx
