Work Week Chic: Tweed

My sophomore year of high school I was nominated to be on homecoming court.  Just like any 16 year old in 2004 I was beyond excited to pick out the perfect pleather skirt to prance myself around the football field in the clunkiest shoes I could find. Those were the times. However, when I went shopping with my mom she insisted I get a skirt suit. You can only imagine that 16 year old me thought it was the end of the world and couldn't believe I was going to have to look so lame. After hours of shopping around (rolling my eyes and being a complete brat) we settled on a classic tweed skirt suit. So boring right?

I hope my mom isn't reading this because as with most things in life I realized years later that of course she was right. While other girls romped around in their pleather mini skirts that will be forever immortalized in a yearbook I am proud to have worn that timeless tweed suit. Some clothes and fabric will never go out of style---tweed is one of them.  If you're looking to invest in work pieces that you will have for years tweed is an excellent choice.

I'm still loving these Kendra Scott earrings from my Rocksbox!  This picture is also an example of the importance of filling in your brows...hello albino eyebrows.



Tweed is such a nice fabric for Fall. I love that you can dress it up or down. Either way you look classic and timeless.

Do you wear tweed?

  11. Ah good, you have the same problem as I - albino eyebrows. Are your eyelashes blond too? Mine are. When I don't wear makeup, I look like I'm 12 years old. Lol!!
