Don't take my tweed away...!

I am delighted to have warm days and sun and picnics and all the good things that come with spring. But I find myself wanting to buy more tweedy things and am trying to convince myself that I can get away with tweed in summer? There is definite evidence on the runways of tweed being perfectly acceptable for spring so I think I'll chance it! 
Chanel Resort Collection 2011 tweed dress

Nina Ricci Spring 2011 tweed suit. Love the pink acessories!

Oscar de la Renta Spring 2011

Chanel Resort Spring 2011
I feel sometimes you lose the impact of tweed as a natural material when it's not a grey tweed but the loose frayed edges in the Chanel collection give the garments a lovely rustic look.

Here are some more accessible tweed lovelies from my internet trawls:
Beyond the Valley tweed shorts £140

Hobbs Arches pinafore £62

Karen Millen twisted tweed dress
Teri Jon Spring 2011 $883

JCrew Spring collection tweed jacket. Very Jackie O!

Signorina dress $355

Travel cape $30 If this was fitted closer to the body I'd definitely buy this in a dark grey, as it is it's a little too Red Riding Hood. But cute!
Vero Moda tweed jacket Spring 2011. There are hundreds of  vintage tweed jackets on Etsy and Ebay. Look how amazingly this goes with the shorts and tights combo.
