Happy Friday everyone! I can’t believe it’s November and we are a few weeks away from Christmas. Time flies by fast, so fast that we are officially 13 weeks away from the birth of our twins. Also, what quickly sneaked up on me was the fact that nothing fits me in my closet. Thankfully, I found two amazing pieces at Banana Republic from their fall/winter 2016 collection.
When I think of tweed, I think of a heritage high-fashion material that’s associated with haute designers like Chanel, Prada, and Dolce Gabbana. I have dreamed of owning something tweed for ages because the material makes you look elegant, chic and refined. Plus, with fall in full swing, it’s the perfect material to wear this season to stay warm and look stylish at the same time. The moment I saw this dress, it was love at first sight!
The moment I put the dress on, I felt like I was tapping into my favorite style icons – Victoria Beckham with a mix of Olivia Palermo with a hint of vintage vibe from Coco Chanel. The material felt amazing and the fit was superb! I could easily see myself wearing it in the office, cocktail hour with the girls and office parties. It’s the perfect dress that can easily transition from day to night, and if the temperature drops – throw on a pair of tights and you are set to go.
Now that you know I am a sucker for tweed, it’s no surprise that I wanted to create a full tweed look with this gorgeous tweed jacket I also got from Banana Republic. Oh, and did I mention that it’s extremely versatile. It’s the perfect jacket to go with any dress, denim, neutral slacks and skirts. It’s the one piece that will surprise you at how well it coordinates with everything in your closet. And because it’s tweed, the material is tightly woven to help keep you warm from any gust of wind that might come your way 😉
