06 Feb Layered Look with Tweed/ Valentines Day Look
How was your weekend? Ours was pretty low key, just doing some things around the house, hanging my dad’s photography and trying to keep up with and get a jump on “spring cleaning”! Sundays I go to the gym and I having just got the “go ahead” to lift weights, seems that I went a bit too “gung ho” the last few times. I truly don’t notice it at the time.. but 2 days later my shoulders are telling me to “cut it out!” Well, I live and learn.I thought it was about time I wore some vibrant red and brought out this cute red cardigan from Banana Republic. I purchased this through Poshmark, which is kind of an on-line thrift store that sells gently used or new items from individuals. (I will be publishing a post on How to shop there soon!) For me, details are important in my clothes and I loved the little chiffon roses and beaded detailing on this sweater. I thought of all of the textures and fabrics I love to wear in the winter, I knew it was time to break out the tweed! I have many tweed items in my closet from blazers to skirts and this black and white tweed flounce skirt has served me well through the years. I decided to pair it with this look and wear a bowed silk white blouse underneath for additional style. My black military jacket , boiled wool with intricate silver buttons, is great for layering as it is not lined and provides just a bit more warmth and style.
My croc textured block heels from Zara are worn here with grey patterned tights to again, play with texture as I love to do. This is more of a casual look for Valentine’s day, and frankly that is pretty much our day. We really don’t celebrate Valentines day other than a giving a lovely card and enjoying some excellent wine and dinner at home.
