Tweed is one of those fabrics that I really love. Whether it is the country girl in me or just because I can't resist these most Autumnal of fabrics, if I see something even vaguely tweedy, you can guarantee that it will end up coming home with me! This dress was an impulse buy from Tesco early one weekday morning but despite that, I really love it! I have worn it quite a few times when I need to feel more pulled together at work and it always gets complimented (which is always nice!) I have just realised that everything but the tights in this outfit is from Tesco, clearly I can't resist their clothing ;)

As it has still been pretty warm recently, I didn't need anything more than my cardigan to keep warm but I plan to layer this dress up with sheer shirts and blouses when the temperatures do drop, I have a green top that would go perfectly with the checked pattern.
My favourite part of this dress though has to be the delicate lace overlay that covers the top (although I wish I went either a little higher or lower on the bodice rather than stopping halfway down my chest, I just think it looks a bit odd!) I wanted to show off the lace but wearing my hair up looked too harsh so I went for soft side swept curls instead. Paired with my new Revlon lipstain in Berry Crush it felt properly Autumnal!
Originally I was going to pair this with either brown or black tights but neither looked quite right and these burgundy ones are way more fun and definitely one of my hardest working sales buys, I have literally had these for years and without fail, they get pulled out every Autumn! I was going to wear them with my burgundy heels but instead I went for these wedges which are much easier to walk in!
