warm in tweed

From tomorrow, there are just 3 days of winter left. Technically, that is. I am looking forward to Spring, but I am still enjoying the last of the coldest weather. Today I wrapped up in soft tweed, a warm cardigan and thick tights, balanced with high, thin black heels.


The dress is actually an old tweed skirt worn higher up. It really is super soft, and felt luxuriously warm. I also wore my hair in its actual style – I rarely do these days – and I am happy to see that it has already grown noticeably longer – and softer – since I last did so. Worn with black eyeliner, and a little olive green liner on the lower lid, I actually quite liked it like this. I am still growing it long again, though.



This morning I had a bit of a shop, and got a few things: a bag, a pair of cream crochet tights (yay! They're from the '60s, in their original packet, and still in good nic) and the pink knitted beret. I will show these soon, but would like to have a few more things to show with them – which, with the way I am feeling these days, will hopefully be within a week. I am hoping to go on my first DFO trip this weekend, and I have some things on my wish list that I really want/need... I've certainly waited long enough! I am rather looking forward to it.

The outfit is adorable and it looks so comfy! You have beautiful hair, by the way. Can't wait to see the beret and tights :)

Skye said...

Beautiful photos - the textures mix is so sumptuous looking.

Miss Karen said...

You look absolutely gorgeous. I love your hair too, and your outfit looks so warm and cosy. :D

Lavender said...

The last day of winter always makes me sad. There's just so much potential in texture and layers that isn't possible in our balmy Aussie summer.

Your outfit is everything that is good about winter dressing. (sigh)

I'm new at this blogging malarkey and love your work.

My blog: Lavender and yolk

Nadine said...

I love your style and the really pretty pictures :).

Keshe said...

I really love this, I absolutely love tweed!

skgillespie said...

Your outfit and your photo styling are divine.

I love tweed and so many people end up looking old lady-ish. You just look fantastic.

Very nice.

I love the soft colours in the pictures! Good idea to wear that skirt as a dress - I might try that today as well :)

esme and the lane way said...

A dreamer: thanks so much! Me too, and it looks like it'll be warm enough very soon :)

amanda: Oh, thank you!

Saorise, the Irish nymph: thanks, it really was comfy. And soon! :)

Skye said: thanks! I had moments of pretending it was all Chanel, darling..!

Miss Karen: thanks! I thought it was time to bust out the fringe! I might put it away again today, though. :)

Lavender: thanks so much. I agree about winter dressing, and summer here is so limiting, when all I want to do is wear an enormous snow ball! I will check out your blog :)

StrikeMatch: thanks! Me too, especially as I couldn't find them new in Myer or DJs.

Nadine: thanks very much! :)

Keshe: thank you! It was fun to wear it, I hadn't for ages.

skgillespie: thanks very much! Maybe it was the non-granny-friendly heels?! :)

Orhan Kahn: thanks!

a cat of impossible colour: thanks! It is def worth a try, especially on skirts that are a little too big (like my tweedy skirt).

Louise said...

I love the combination of colours and textures. I think your hair looks really good in that style. Beautiful photos, as always.

yulanda said...

I love your hair. & the outfit.

WJ said...

Love your idea of contrasting thick and woolly fabrics with thin pointy heels!

cybill said...

You have put together one of the best outfits I have ever seen - its inspirational.

esme and the lane way said...

Louise: thanks very much! It was nice to wear it 'out' for a change :)

yulanda: thanks!

WJ: thanks! I must say though that I'm not used to these kind of heels, and walking was not so easy!

cybill: hanks very much!:)

kathy: thank you :)
