A few years ago, I saw a look like this one on Pinterest and immediately began a quest to find the perfect cropped tweed style jacket to recreate the look.  Every time I would find the perfect jacket, the price tag was usually not so perfect.  I had such an exact idea in my head, and I started to think I would never find the jacket in my desired price range.  Ever get like that where you have something in your head, and then spend hours, days, in my case years trying to find it.

When I found this one, I could not believe my luck.  It was the exact style and color I wanted and a pretty decent price.  Here’s the downside for ya’ll, I apparently was not the only one searching for this jacket and it sold out before it even made it to my doorstep.  I’m going to keep my eyes out for a restock, and I’ll share over on Instagram when it happens!

This jacket is not a true tweed but a knit with houndstooth print that reminds me of a tweed like look.  It has cute fringe details on the sleeves and faux pocket.  It’s an open jacket with one sparkly button at the top.  This white top and black jeans and boots combo is the outfit I have been trying to recreate for a cute fall or holiday look. It’s such a chic way to style a cropped jacket. I also think this jacket will work to dress up a t-shirt or pair with a fitted dress or pencil skirt for work.  The knit design keep it lightweight and easy to move in which I really like.

  1. Karen, this is such a fabulous look! I can see why you wanted to recreate it. I love a good tweed jacket, too. And the dress that matches that one is so adorable, too! I have definitely had the same happen to me when I decide I want a specific thing and can’t find it in my price range (or at all for that matter). Sometimes, I eventually find them and other times I just give up and forget about it. One example…I have literally wanted a camouflage semi-formal style dress since I was about 12…that’s over 30 years of wanting and every few years I will begin my search again. Still haven’t found one! Maybe one day I will just have someone make it for me! Thanks for linking up!
