Although I cannot really remember when I became obsessed finding a tweed jacket for spring I found myself searching for just the right one. You might remember I tried one in my last Prime Wardrobe box but it was too small. The fabric was also too thick for FL. I had all but given up when the perfect one appeared! It happened at check out when I was buying my new favorite jeans from JCPenney. A suggested outfit popped up using my jeans and it caught my eye – why not?
Tweed can be tricky in Florida, especially when we have temperatures in the 90’s right now. This one works because it has the prettiest pastel colors running through it and it’s relatively lightweight. It works very well with a sleeveless shell underneath and is the perfect layering piece for that icy cold a/c we Floridians need in order to survive #notjoking.
Since I’m unfamiliar with the sizing at JCPenney I ordered it in a medium but ended up exchanging it for a small. I had also ordered this cute sleeveless satin blouse in a beautiful bright blue to go with it (again part of the suggested outfit on the website) but it was too big and the store did not have the color I wanted in the size I needed.
I was thrilled to get to wear this beauty when I had the chance to meet another beauty in real life! Yep, last week I had the honor of having lunch with Paula of Dimples on my What! We are both part of the Ageless Style monthly link up and when she found herself in central Florida visiting relatives she messaged me. We had a great lunch and she is my kinda girl – we ordered salads and then dessert! That’s what I call balance!
I look forward to getting to hang out with Paula in the future when she’s in town again. She is a delight and enjoyed our time together! She had a small camera in her bag and we got a few quick pictures!
Are you smitten with tweed? I plan to wear my tweed jacket with shorts and even colorful pants this spring and summer. I can’t wait to share those looks with you! BTW, have you joined me on Instagram yet? I am sharing my daily outfits on IG stories. I am having a good time there and I’d love to have you join me!
