Style Britannia: Tweed

If I think tweed, I think country.

{Hand in hand like
a steaming mug of cocoa
and lashings of whipped cream.}

But do I think Modern Country?
Do I think Style Britannia?

A big fat yes from me.
Just take a squiz at these.
Then look me in the eye and
try to tell me you can't see a
glimmer of goodness in them.

You can't do it can you?

I see that glimmer in your eye, cherry pie.
Thinking: how can I make that look work for me?

That's exactly where I hope I cam help you.
Tomorrow I'll show you how I style it my way.

Tweed's come a long way, bab-ay.

Can't wait to see what you have for tweed. I never used to like it, but I feel I may have swayed. Look forward to your next post. Leahxx

Tweed? In Florida, US it is in the 90'sF and the thought of tweed is making me sweat. Hot, sticky, damp wool smell. Ask me again in November.


I have never owned anything tweed. Should I be sad about that? Help me out here, dear Sarah.


Jenni said...

Hello Sarah! How are you today? I hope you had a wonderful Monday! :)

Tweed is a lovely fabric, but I don't think I have ever owned any, actually. Maybe after you show us how to make it work for us, I will have to change this! :)
