Tweed the Season

Coats are a “must-have” in Canada and multiple coats are a necessity in Toronto. Fall can bring rain, wind, cold, damp –you get the picture. As the cooler weather sets in it’s good to have various choices for outerwear. That’s why I added this Sisley Tweed Coat to my outerwear wardrobe.

I picked this coat up at the outlet just outside Udine for 47 euros ($70 CAD). STEAL!!!! The colour and retro shape of this coat are what attracted me to it. Burgandy has been a hot colour for Fall for the past 2 seasons and it works well with my skin tone and hair colour. This tweed also has grey and pink in it so the possibilities for looks are endless. The high collar of this coat provides protection against wind and cold. I can tuck in a silk scarf that peaks out of the collar or wrap a long scarf around the outside. The bracelet length sleeve shows off my leather gloves.

 

 

TWEED QUEEN

My final stop on my Black Friday Shopping morning at Yorkdale was White House – Black Market at 8:10am. Their skirts fit me so well. I now have 4 which includes this new tweed, faux wrap skirt.skirt

From my graphic proposal post, you may remember I featured skirts from Prada’s SS2016 show. This skirt from WHBM caught my eye as very close to the Prada version. I’ve paired it with black merino wool sweater from JCrew and Franco Sarto riding boots. The necklace is from Blooimingdale’s which I picked up from clearance bin for $18.
