A Moment in Tweed

"People love to plan, love to curate a moment, love to follow some strategic rule to success. That's great and I can't argue that it must be nice to have a formula to happiness. If only life worked like that, and perhaps, thankfully so."

Moments should be calculated or at least that's what many people believe. Look at weddings, at the thriving event planning and public relation industry, the now more calculated social media posts, advertising campaigns, whole collections created years in advance. People love to plan, love to curate a moment, love to follow some strategic rule to success. That's great and I can't argue that it must be nice to have a formula to happiness. If only life worked like that, and perhaps, thankfully so. This post here is not called "A Tweed Moment". It's called "A Moment in Tweed", so I encourage you to take a spontaneous walk around your neighborhood or somewhere you've never been before. Let the moment unfold before you with not a care or calculation in mind.

Now onto this tweed outfit. Tweed is a very classic and necessary texture to play with during the chilly seasons. The designer, Ann Yee, did an unexpected yet highly approachable design with these two pieces. She combined two textures seamlessly to still keep the classic notes of tweed while adding large leather detailing to create a whole new vibe. The combination creates a fun juxtaposition that is pleasant on the eyes and feels great on the skin. I'm a sucker for matching suits so I paired the light jacket with the tweed blocked leggings. I intentionally left the shirt at home and grabbed a statement necklace instead. Break some rules, right? The gypsy inspired and raw silver jewelry along with the hat were the final touches to this interesting Neckbreakin' ensemble. I never wear silver but when I do, I go all out.
