Texture & Tweed

by Jessica Sturdy on October 12, 2012

Texture is the name of the game today. Texture is one of the most simple ways to add some pizazz to a casual outfit!

Ok, you convinced me – I was on the fence about needing yet another blazer, but I think a tan tweed one is totally in my future!! You look fabulous – I love camel and burgundy! (And I’m having a burgundy color link-up party next week on my blog if you want to join with this outfit!)

Love your outfit. Who would have thought you could use your umbrella as an accessory. I love it. I adore the rich bordeaux.

Thank Ellen! So far, this is my favorite spot in the park. This is the place where so many movies have filmed and where so many scenic Central Park photos have been taken. I’ll have to tell you about the photography project I want to do here :)

Jessica, this is one thing I love about fall and winter that you can layer clothes and build up your outfit with different textures. Love your tweed blazer and how you incoporated this super feminine bordeaux peplum into it. Great fall look, one of my favourites of you so far :-)

So so cute, and I was just thinking the other day about how to layer over a peplum top! I just made one from a dress I made last year: http://www.adventuresindressmaking.com/2012/10/self-made-dress-makeover-into-top.html

I ought to try a blazer, looks like it works pretty well! You three all look so cute and stylish together, too!
