Look! Up in the Sky! It’s Tweedy Bird!

Over there! Look! Up in the Sky! It’s Tweedy Bird!

I warned you last week that I have enough tweed articles of clothing that I could dress for 14 days in tweed and not wear the same thing twice. However, I did promise you that I wouldn’t do 14 straight days of tweed posts…but I didn’t say I wouldn’t do more than one either!

The Look: It started with my tweed jacket from Zara. I wanted to keep it light but also have some fun and from last weeks post about tweed you’ll remember that I like to mix some pattern with my tweed. This plaid shirt from Ralph Lauren worked perfectly and then the Ralph Lauren silk pants were a natural. The shirt was bought at the outlet shop last year on sale and the pants you’ll remember from earlier this year. I do love the mix of texture and fabrics in this look. The plaid is relaxed and casual but in pastel colours, the pants are gorgeous in 100% silk and crazy long. Then of course there is the texture of the tweed with its frayed edges.

The Accessories: Accessorizing this look was pretty easy. There was already a fair bit going on so I kept the accessories pretty tame. Turquoise wedges to tie in with each of the other pieces. My big white watch and some silver and turquoise bracelets. I could have worn a turquoise necklace but I thought that would be a little too predictable so I opted for this green beaded necklace that reminds me a little of a bolero tie which seemed appropriate with the plaid shirt. My earrings are my green and purple jade drops and the whole look is finished with my vintage silver-blue mesh clutch.

Of course the silver toenails and coral coloured finger-nails all worked perfectly with the ensemble too!

The shoes and the forever long pants make me look extremely tall, which I am already, and then the Fashion Mister took most of the photos from down the stairs which just made me look even taller.

So…tell me…what do you think of my Look! Up in the Sky! It’s Tweed Bird! look? Too much colour? Not serious enough for tweed?
