After I had failed to pull off the boho chic style yesterday, I decided I had enough of style experimenting for this weekend. And to go for a style that is somehow more like me this morning. So instead of challenging myself wearing some undesirable outfit, I decided to wear this nice elegant outfit to a Sunday brunch with my family. Yes, I’m dressed in a tweed suit. And, no it’s certainly not like the one your grandma wears.
As said, I’m wearing a tweed suit for a brunch and morning walk through the city this Sunday. Well, I should rather write I’m wearing a tweed skirt and a tweed blazer, as these two don’t actually match. Still, together with the rest of the things I’m wearing, they make a classy look, fit for a refined Sunday brunch in some posh cafeteria or restaurant.
MY WEEKEND TWEEDY STYLE
Today I’m wearing, double doses of tweed. A tweed suit if you prefer. However, the skirt and blazer I’m dressed in this morning, match only in the material. Which makes my outfit look nothing like the one your grandma might wear.
I must admit. Years ago, when I bought this blazer that I’m wearing today, I thought anything tweedy is for the elder ladies only. However, I completely changed my mind after seeing Chanel’s fashion show. You know what I mean? I realised there is a way to make tweed work for young women and girls much better than for old ladies. No offence, Grandma!
HOW TO WEAR TWEED AS A FASHIONISTA
So how to wear tweed and look like a fashionista and not like you borrowed the look from your grandma? It’s quite easy, actually. And there are more ways to pull this look off. I already wrote about one way in the post Patterns under my umbrella, in which I wore a black tweed skirt. More about tweed is coming up in my tomorrow’s blogpost, too. I want to show you, how to wear the tweedy outfit to the office. Honestly, that one is the most difficult to pull off. As there are not colourful tights, you could wear to the office, that could elevate your tweedy outfit. So make sure you come back to see how to wear tweed to the office and look super chic and smart at the same time.

TWEEDY TWEED WEEKEND
Finally, back to the weekend outfit that I’m wearing today. As said I combined two different tweedy pieces. A blue tweed skirt and black tweed blazer. I decided to go for a blue, black and white palette, to bring this outfit to the chic level.
To put it short, here I am, wearing a blue tweed skirt, a blue stripped shirt and blue tights with a denim effect. I framed this blue part of my weekend outfit with the black tweed blazer and long black coat. And finish the entire outfit with these chic white pumps. A note to be taken here. When wearing tights and socks that are not exactly in a natural shade together with pumps, make sure you put on the white pumps with a round toe. For me, there is nothing worse than seeing a woman wearing pointed toe white heels and black tights. If you want to wear this, you need to wear it right! Looking at you, my blonde-unicorn bestie!
Now to the accessories that I’m wearing today. There are actually three accessories all together. Those from Ljubljana can tell, there was no rain this morning and I decided to open the umbrella just for fun. Regardless, the umbrella is not an important part of my outfit this time. Whereas the gloves and the bag are.
I’m wearing blue gloves, that perfectly finish the blue part of my outfit. As it goes to the pink bag, that I’m wearing. The pink refreshes my look and is here to give the final contrast to the tweedy outfit your grandma might wear.

As it comes to other things, you can find them all online.

Last and least, In case you are wondering, I’m strolling in the centre of Ljubljana today. I’m crossing the Butcher’s bridge, walking down the Petkovskovo nabrezje and having my Sunday brunch at Lolita. What better place to wear this weekend tweedy outfit, right?
