Wardrobe Diaries: Tweed and Chains
















































I have been on the hunt for a pair of tweed shorts for the longest time. To me, they represent the perfect merging of classic and modern. Imagine my excitement when I popped into Mango this past weekend and came upon THE perfect pair and in my size too! These shorts are exactly what I have been searching for; short but not too short, high but not too high and in a classic black and white. So in honour of their inaugural appearance on {camo meets couture} I thought, what better way to style them than with a black turtleneck and layered chains à la classic Chanel.

Now that we've officially entered holiday season, I'm looking forward to putting together some holiday themed posts for you. Christmas has that magical ability to bring out the kid in all of us, which makes December the BEST month of the year. Don't you agree?

Anyone who thinks you can't warm up late Fall/Autumn with a hot outfit obviously has never seen this post. These shorts and those peep-toe pumps are a fabulous combination. I even like the necklace and the handbag. Sweet style here! You did Coco Chanel proud with this one.

I agree with you on those tweed shorts! I've been on a hunt for some cute tweed jacket & skirt with a modern twist so it won't make me look like a grandma, haha! I love how to styled it with a simple top and a statement necklace!

Allison said...

Seriously, you look SO SO STUNNING!! I have also been looking for the perfect tweed shorts, but I have yet to find a pair! And I love how you're rocking a turtleneck again- proving that turtlenecks are here to stay. AND that necklace. OMG WANT WANT WANT. I'm not a necklace person normally, but statement pieces like those are right up my alley. Is this necklace current? I need to try to find it! :)
