Mrs. Tweedy...

Not just the name of the scariest woman in film but an inspiration for this outfit post. Recently, I have been craving pinafore dresses and this one fitted the bill perfectly. The fact I got 20% off it at work just sweetened the deal.  It was the base for a heritage inspired look and I actually love all of the brown together despite it being a decidedly unfashionable colour!

Coat: c/o Tesco, dress: George at Asda, blouse: Pins & Needles at Urban Outfitters, tights: Primark, boots: Carvela, bag: charity shop. 

The mossy green and the rich browns immediately made me think of old books in a dusty library and the billowy sleeves contrasted with the rich tweedy material. There's something about certain textures that I associate with different things and tweed always makes me think of long country walks... 


I loved the lace edging and the little faux pockets... it's all in the details! 


I kept my make-up fairly natural and luckily walking in the cold gave me a lovely pink flush! 



You all know how much I love a shiny bag


And a rather hilarious outtake of the day: it's cold work being a blogger! 

Do you associate textures with memories? Would you wear brown?

Love love the dress but I think I might like the bag even more! xx

The dress is lovely, and your coat is gorgeous too. The blouse goes so well with the pinafore dress and you look lovely as usual. xxx

I love that dress, it looks perfect with the blouse and the coat is gorgeous too! x

Michelle said...

Such a lovely dress Maria, it looks really sweet with that sheer blue blouse! And I agree, it is very cold work being a blogger at this time of year, shooting my recent outfit photos without my coat has been verrry challenging! xx

I love this! I'm such a fan of tweed, which I guess is weird considering I kind of hate the countryside. My vintage tweed Burberry blazer is my most treasured possession.

You look absolutely gorgeous. I am so jealous of this look, I wish I could pull off a look like this. Love it.

The last picture is fantastic! You look great in tweed. I realise I need more of it in my life. The pinafore and coat go so perfectly together.

i adore the heritage look on you, plus the blouse looks beautiful layered under your dress. it's such an interesting shade of blue, too. i love your bag too, i can't resist a shiny faux snakeskin bag either! i have a smallish square one along with my 'usual' bag, but i'm after something slightly bigger considering as i now have a bigger camera! xx

Lisa said...
