Tweedy Florals & Messy Hair

- Outfits

This combination is an easy one, I believe the big floral prints on this bow-tie blouse and the classic black and white tweed jacket just work together.  Adding a strand of pearls could look quite nice with this too, but I’ll be honest that I only had 20 minutes to get ready yesterday so accessories were lacking.  I did mange to put on some sparkly bracelets and earrings though!

And this quote found on my Pinterest account is why I allowed myself to walk out of the apartment this way:

I embraced it by letting it do its own thing (but tried to control it in a bun) and by adding a small detail: my black bow headband.  I think this quote is more for messy beach waves? But hey, you know when you only have 20 minutes to get ready in the morning, you really have to do what you have to do :) Totally my fault, but this is how real life goes.

    This is a great outfit- especially for those of us who have an office dress code. Love the background of the photos, too!

    I recently rediscovered my love for tweed…I’m wearing a similar jacket today! I love how it’s still apropro for the office, but fun enough for drinks afterwards!

    The silky top and tweed jacket is such a fun contrast. It’s also incredibly polished and put together. Add in the bun (which looks incredibly chic and polished to me!) and this is a darling outfit, Rachel!
