Tweed It Up

I had heard a lot of great things about my city’s #1 “best resale shop” so I decided I had to check it out one afternoon after work. The shop was filled with tons of treasures: everything from fur coats to women’s and men’s clothing to shoes and purses to housewares, jewelry, and furniture. It was so crowded! The place is hopping, that’s for sure!

I picked up a beautifully tarnished silver goblet to store my rings in on my dresser, a new-with-tags $160 silk shirt for $9, and this tweed blazer, a beautiful petite cut with cream, pink, and grey colors. It’s a bit boxy so I belted it around the waist, and it doesn’t have buttons (on purpose, I think) but I think it’s the perfect business casual jacket. I’ve been wanting something tweed for a long time so when I came across this lovely jacket I couldn’t pass it up.

Oh, and I’m wearing my LuShae ring on my left ring finger, but I’m not married. I just ran out of ring fingers.

You’ve seen the boots before (here and here), the jeans several times (here here & here), and the top as well (here, here & here).

While I wouldn’t wear the jeans to work or an interview, the lace, studs, and sparkles on my crystal necklace all let my individual style shine through while still looking put-together.

Do you have to dress professionally for work or other occasions? If so, how do you let your style shine through while still looking professional?
