Easy and Elegant Life

The Search for Everyday Elegance and the Art of Living Well.

(Horrible photo, sorry! I’ve got to dash.)

Playing catch-up today after the long weekend and the travelling to the family reunion, so this is a short post.

Tweed and leather are a natural match. Both are rugged and outdoorsy. There’s a reason that worn tweed jackets are patched with suede. It just looks right.

I always feel vaguely Hollywood circa the 1970’s when I don an outfit like this, but the weather calls for some fancy footwork as mornings start in the mid-30’s and end up hovering around 60ºF. Matched with the cream and tweed trousers are a pair of suede Chelsea boots, a lightweight cashmere cream turtleneck and a caramel coloured suede overshirt, all of which should let me drive around with the sunroof open, at least, as I buy a Christmas present and a get-well card.

Dressing tonally when you are casual is a very easy way to up your elegance quotient; in my opinion it looks a little more well-thought out.

  1. So glad to see you sporting tweed again – there’s a bit of a “stooshie” about it here in Scotland due to the misguided remarks of one of our politicians!

  2. Oh yes, I agree, it takes so little to make a statement, I cannot stand to go out in warm ups etc unless I am going to something like physical Therapy!

  3. I think the outfit looks great. Just the thing for running about…without hopefully doing any running.


  4. Thank you Christine and welcome. It is a work in progress and there was a great debate over the colour of the walls and whether or not to paint the shelves… If only it contained a full sized OED… .
