Take Ten Tweed Tastic!

Wednesday, October 03, 2012

I managed to brave my recent insecurities to take this photos for Take Ten, seriously I dunno where my confidence went? Anyways taken in between rain showers and running extremely late for work Dave took these photos for me. Our challenge was sponsored by NEXT, we each picked a piece from their 30th anniversary collection. I opted for the tweed biker jacket which isn't my usual style but I loved it at first sight & Im a sucker for whim purchasing!

Jacket c/o Next, Jumper: H&M, Shirt: Asos, Necklace: Topshop, Skinnies: Pousserie d'etole, Boots: Zara, Glasses: Gok Wan for Specsavers.

I lifted the colour of the burgundy piping and matched it in with my wine knit jumper. For an added contrast & for warmth I added my buttoned up polka dot shirt underneath, grey skinnies & black boots which have an awesome metal heel which are unfortunately lost in the grass in these shots.

Check out what pieces the other Take Ten ladies picked and how they styled them on their blogs: Clockwise from top left:
Sarah , Paula, Harriet, Fritha ,Ellie Olivia,, Mel, Sherin, Lucy
