The need for Tweed!

Tweed - I love it.

I don't know about you but I always feel the cold in winter; practical clothing never seems to be stylish!  I've found with tweed, you can now get some great designs that are not too "country" or "practical" in the sense you look like your Grandmother; yet keep warm on those cold chilly days!

One of my great finds this season has to be my Mapilton tweed jacket from Joules, it's just fabulous.  I can wear it to work over my shift dresses or black trousers.  I can wear it casually with jeans for shopping or lunch with the girls; not only is that jacket versatile, I love the detail that Joules has put into the design.

I have no idea where my jacket is made, but the attention to detail with the lining of the fabric, the unusual buttons, plus the overall quality & finish, I feel I have had a jacket tailored just for me.  With the amount  of compliments I've received from girlfriends, this has made the value of purchase so worthwhile!


Joules is a great place to shop both online or in the high street - the service can be matched to what you would get from an independent boutique.  Here are some other Joules tweed items that I may treat myself to in the new year:
