I’ve had this crazy obsession with Helmut Lang over the last year.  I got this Sonar Wool Asymmetrical jacket for almost 50% off and once I put it on, it was love. More Helmut? Yes, please!

Inverted

Given that I have so many black blazers, I am accustomed to layering black over white or any lighter color. However, when I acquired this white blazer (which, I love BTW), I was forced to try something different. And I soon realized, you cannot go wrong with a white blazer.

I hadn’t realized until now that I haven’t posted an EOTD for almost a month! Sorry about that. Will try harder!

A little minty

I haven’t really taken part in the mint trend over the past year or so, mostly because I look absolutely horrific in pastel colors due to the gold undertone in my skin. However, when I came across this necklace at J.Crew Factory, I thought it would be a great addition to my jewelry arsenal while at the same time being able to add something a bit trendy into my wardrobe without going all in:

This new Theory Lanai blazer has become one of my new favorites in my closet. I needed a suit jacket to go with my unmatched Theory trousers, but I really didn’t need another classic black blazer. I opted for this collarless piece and I’m thrilled with it (so much so I even purchased it in white to see if it will fill that white blazer gap in my closet). The cut is impeccable and it goes with everything. The sleeves are a bit long, which is why the are rolled up to bracelet length here, but they seem to be an easy fix which I’ll get to when I stop being so lazy. I am wearing it in size 0, my regular Theory jacket size. It is also on sale with an additonal 20% off at Bloomingdales.com with code JUNEFRIENDS.  The white twill version is on sale at Nordies with 40% off as well.
