Why I’m Wearing Tweed This Winter

It must have something to do with being back in England but every time I go out, I seem to be drawn to tweed jackets. Green tweed, brown tweed, even bright pink tweed…the preppy style jacket is showing signs of a revival for 2020 and I’m pretty pleased about it. Tweed (and especially tweed jackets) have been a staple in British wardrobes for centuries and the fashion world puts regular spins on this old favourite with colourful materials, embellishment and modern tailoring. High street dupes of Chanel’s iconic bouclé blazer sell out every year and you can now get all sorts of clothing items made in this traditional sturdy fabric. I’ve long been a fan of an oversized blazer and this is the perfect way to refresh it. Read on for why I’m wearing tweed this winter and where you can shop yours.

From the office to the park and back again, the great thing about tweed is its versatility. A structured tweed blazer instantly smartens up jeans and a t-shirt, whereas as a double-breasted tweed overcoat adds some variation to the sea of black and navy that usually dominates our winter wardrobes. Tailored outerwear is an effortlessly elegant option and a well-made piece will last for seasons, looking just as chic over wellies or trainers as it does over skyscraper heels or thigh-high boots.

If you want to add a little bit of this chic material into your collection then a classic jacket is a winning option. If the variations in colour and style weren’t enough, tweed is actually surprisingly warm so I’ve included some wintery overcoats into my shopping links, as well as some more structured classics.

What I’m Wearing: Jacket by Gerard Darel, T-shirt by Re/done, Jeans by Reformation, Boots by Stuart Weitzman, Hair bow by La Coqueta.

  • *Edit / update... when I say ‘island’ I mean reclaimed table, Ie small, and moveable! 
A tour of our kitchen so far, and I’m trying to convince @mackenziehunkin we have space for an island in the middle, AKA my wine-sipping station. Hubby says no. But he likes to cook, so once I’ve put Honor to bed I love coming down, propping up a stool and pouring a little glass of 🍷 to unwind. What do you think of our carpentry skills?! 😂 We’ve got space right? Vote YES below so I can convince him! 🙋🏻‍♀️👍
  • ITALIA 🇮🇹 I’m coming for you! I can’t wait to visit one of my favorite countries this week! Firenze... where should we go? Tips please ♥️ 🍝 👠
  • Happy 2nd Birthday to our darling girl 🎂 
Today we skipped having a big fancy party. Instead, we did all of Honor’s favourite things... jumped in muddy puddles, fed the goats, stroked a bunny and saw a newborn sheep at the farm (his name is Jacob), slid down a steep slide, baked a chocolate cake (and ate it), opened presents, read books, rode a giant rocking horse, danced to Peppa Pig, and ate more cake with her grandparents, auntie, uncle and cousins. 
After I put her to bed, we heard her singing, ‘Happy Birthday to you’, over and over on the monitor ☺️
Family is everything, and I’m so grateful for mine. 💫
  • #ad Finally had a moment to reflect and get myself ready for the new decade. So I sat down to get my goals and hopes down on paper, and mixed myself a @ketelonebotanical spritz to sip! The overarching theme: taking extra time to switch off, and enjoying the small, everyday moments more. Like saying yes to the occasional vodka cocktail (bonus points when it has no added sugar or artificial sweeteners!). What kind of #BotanicalSpritz will you be drinking to toast the new decade? #ketelbotanical #CucumberandMint⁠
