i feel the need for tweed! so let’s transition to fall in a tweed blazer. tweed or bouclé blazers are a terrific fall addition to your wardrobe that comes in various price points. a tweed jacket is a timeless wardrobe piece with staying power that can easily go to the office or an off-duty outfit.
well, gang, yours truly has been without an air conditioner for the past few days. ugh! not to worry as the upstairs and downstairs run on separate units, so i’m not in total despair. hopefully, a new unit will be installed on Friday, and i’ll be back up and running. fingers crossed as i leave for Tybee on Sunday. who wants to leave their housesitter with no cool air. there’s always something, right?! c’est le vie. but i am getting excited to spend the week at the beach. a friend is joining me for several days, and my big brother and his wife are coming too! can you say excited? it’ll be a fun week for certain. for a look at all the behind-the-scenes action, follow along on Instagram.
there’s no need to go formal when it comes to a tweed blazer. in fact, it’s easy to transition to fall in a tweed blazer from Nic+Zoe (similar here and here) with a classic button-down. think a button-down is too stuffy? then opt for a silky blouse (old, similar here) with ruffles that add elegance and ooze femininity. it’s a no-brainer to pair a tweed blazer with a skirt, but i opted for straight-leg blue jeans from Frame for an on-trend casual ensemble that i can put together in minutes. it’s a variation of my style uniform that’s perfect for fall. gray suede booties last seen here add texture and tie back to the gray blazer. a gray suede hobo bag from Talbots completes this casual-chic ootd.
