The Need for Tweed

Tweed jacket from Zara

I wrote a post a few weeks ago about revisiting my capsule wardrobe and generally buying a little more conciously. I had some Christmas money and vouchers left over to spend and I have ended up picking up a few bits and pieces, which will be helpful for updating my wardrobe for the spring. However, I shopped with the capsule wardrobe in mind and I realised one of the things I was lacking (but really wanted to wear) was a boucle jacket.

Step forward Zara, somewhere I rarely shop but, of all the places on the high street, has the monopoly when it comes to those classic boucle jackets that look Chanel inspired and never really date. I found this one on the website, it was a sale buy reduced from £70 to £15. Because Zara do a great click and collect service, I was able to order it into store and collect it for zero pence (I wish more online retailers would offer this service!)

At the moment I am wearing this jacket like a cardigan but when it's really spring I will chuck it over a t shirt and wear with my favourite jeans - it will also look wick with these sandals that I bought in the sales but have not yet worn (because it's snowing outside)

Fancy a tweed jacket yourself? I like this one and this one.
