If you've been following AKSOS for a while, it's no surprise to you that I am a lover of all things tweed. Sometimes I feel like a bit of a collector. Maybe it's the durable texture, or the fact that there are lots of pretty colors woven together. Whatever the reason, I’m a huge fan. A tweed jacket is a wardrobe must have because it can be worn dressed up for say, a day at the office or dressed down, for a lunch date or weekend shopping. I find myself reaching for the ones in my closet all the time. If you haven't explored this trend yet I would definitely recommend it. You can shop some great options hereherehere, and here. And if you're already a fan I'd love to hear how wear yours!

Thanks so much for reading!
