It’s probably obvious by now that color doesn’t make up a huge part of my fall and winter wardrobe. But every now and then I feel prompted to liven it up with a little something. It doesn’t happen often, but it happens.

J.Crew Hacking Jacket in Double Serge Wool (Coral)(similar) / J.Crew Heart print blouse / Club Monaco Rachel Pant /  Loeffler Randall Matilde Boots / 3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli Satchel /  Michael Kors Runway MK5076 Watch /  Forever21 Rings

You may remember a while back when I purchased this J.Crew Hacking Jacket in Double Serge Wool. I can’t deny that it’s absolutely beautiful, but given my propensity to wear dark colors when the seasons change for the colder, it really doesn’t get a whole lot of wear. Plus, it is one heavy blazer.  As such, it causes me to sweat which can be particularly annoying at the office when I’m trying to be cool and collected and beads of sweat are dripping down the back of my neck, and unquestionably, my blouse underneath shows some indication that I just completed a 10K race. Furthermore, I always “pop the collar”, which I’m sure doesn’t help any.

Nevertheless, I do pull this jacket out on occasion and it never fails to induce several compliments by complete strangers. You’d think it would encourage me to wear it more often. But no, not really.

    Haha. It’s funny, I can’t ever find that happy medium where this jacket is perfect for the outdoors, but doesn’t make me sweat indoors!

    I would love one in every color too! I almost always opt for black though. I need to stop with the black blazers, it’s getting out of hand!
