Tweed isn’t exactly the most summery material, but I just could not resist these striped matching separates when I saw them on the Zara website. I feel like it was fate, because I hadn’t shopped there in like two years.
There were just too many good details on these separates that I knew I’d regret if I didn’t jump on them. Obviously, the bow was the first aspect to suck me in. An oversized bow will always suck me in. The fringe along the hem added a fun detail that further proved to me I needed it.
I bought this on a whim, not exactly sure where I’d wear it, but deep down knowing I’d find a place. Sure enough, an opportunity presented itself about a week later. I was invited to the Dressing Downton exhibit at the Taft Museum of Art, and thought this was the perfect outfit for the event. It’s ladylike, polished and classic, just like the costumes on the show.
The exhibit was incredible, and it’s no surprise that my favorite pieces all had elaborate beadwork and sparkle. If you’re in Cincinnati, I highly recommend it!
