I love a tweed jacket. It always reminds me of Chanel and of course Chanel always makes me smile!

Okay, so this tweed jacket is not Chanel. It’s a Cabi and I found it at a local thrift store. I really like it as a summer to fall transitional piece.  It’s not too heavy, but it definitely gives off a fall vibe.

    Love those flare jeans. They make your legs look about a mile long. They look great with the tweed jacket. How fun that you're doing an over 40 fashion linkup!

    I've searched forever for a tweed type jacket and for some reason the arm are always soooo tight! I can never find one that fits 🙁


    • Reply dawnlucy September 18, 2015 at 3:49 pm

      I hate tight arms too … hope you find a comfy one! 🙂

    I am so in love with flared jeans, they are so flattering, aren't they? You look fabulous in yours and the Chanel-type-jacket is a perfect match. Love this entire look, Dawn Lucy!

    Dearest Dawn…have I told you lately how envious I am of your thrifting skills?! This tweedy jacket is SCRUMPTIOUS!! And even though it's inspired by a completely different era, it looks absolutely fabulous paired with your 70's flared denim and those cute platform clogs!! P.S. I'll be in the throes of moving next Friday, so please forgive me if I don't manage to make it to your weekly linkup; I promise to be back again ASAP!! XOXO

    Tweed always reminds me of Chanel too. This jacket is super cute – even if it's not Chanel!
