Did you borrow your Grandad's Blazer?


Outfit: Blazer- Oxfam; Stripy T-shirt- H&M (seen here); Shorts - COW vintage (seen here); Necklace- Primark; Bag - Zara (seen here); Boots - Market (seen here)




Tweed jackets aren't something you would necessarily associate with women's fashion. A Grandad's clothing of choice yes, but a teenage girl's, not so much. However, personally I always feel most comfortable when my outfit contains a touch of adrogyny. It's no suprise then that I have been on the hunt for a tweed jacket for a while now, a very particular hunt at that. It has to appear like it's been borrowed from my Grandad, yet have small enough shoulders not to make me look like a built up rugby player. I found one in my local Oxfam this week which I think just about fits the bill, although the shoulders may perhaps be a tad on the square side.

This is such a perfect outfit for fall. That tweed coat is FABULOUS! And I'm not gonna lie, I have borrowed my dad's tweed coats before and I do think they are such a cute addition to a girl's outfit. :)
