Denim + Tweed



There is definitely something to be said for classic pieces that stand the test of time - like this tweed jacket I scored on eBay last year.  It has just enough modern touches in the styling to make it feel current.  And it works well for day or evening, though my preferred pairing is usually a simple combination like this one.  I love the mix of different textures (tweed, distressed denim & sequins) with just a small pop of color.






What I'm wearing:
Zara jacket (similar save or splurge), Old Navy shirt (similar), Forever 21 jeans (similar), ALDO pumps (on sale here), Zara clutch (similar), Forever 21 bracelet (here), Banana Republic ring, Target sunnies (similar), Nails: Sally Hansen Wet Cement, Lips: Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Sweetheart

OMG! Love that clutch. It is fabolous and probably will go with just about everything. I ordered a similar one but in pink two weeks ago off of ebay. I was super excited before to get it.. now that I see yours I can't wait!! Also I love your shoes. I really think Pink is just a versatile color that withstands all season. I never thought about pink for the fall but it's definitely on my radar now. Great job girl!
