Easter Layers

Winter still seems to be hanging around in these parts. While Easter Sunday is supposed to bring some spring temperatures, Easter Eve was still below freezing. My family attended early morning Mass and I quickly realized I needed to add on some Easter layers to my outfit. Lightened up slightly from my typical dark neutrals from winter, I wore a dusty rose/mauve-colored silk blouse under my white leather moto vest and light grey wool peacoat. I topped it off with a scarf to cover my neck and I was good to go.

We have one more cold spell expected in the coming week and then I think we are finally in the clear of winter. Hooray!

Blue Suede

When I spotted this blue suede jacket on Kelly, my eyes nearly popped out of my head. The color is insanely beautiful and unique for a suede jacket. And yet being navy blue, still so versatile. I tried for days to resist buying it, but I eventually gave in. And do I have any regrets? Definitely not!

I opted for a size Small, using Kelly as a point of reference. She if quite narrow-shouldered, while I have a more athletic set, so I know that if she fits into a particular size, I almost certainly have to size up at least one size above her. And the sizing was right on. The jacket is also somewhat heavier than I was expecting, but I’m quite happy about that. For $198, this is quite a steal, but I’ve also seen this on sale at 6pm.com for around $130! They don’t seem to be in stock right now, but if you dig this jacket, keep an eye out for it! It also comes in a gorgeous burgundy color.

Just One

It happens more often than I’d like, but sometimes I will take a hundred photos and not a single one will be blog-worthy. It’s annoying to say the least. Yesterday was one of those days, but I thought this one photo might be borderline blog-worthy, so for the sake of posting since I missed all last week, I have shared this one photo. Just one, though.

DRESSED ACCORDINGLY BLOG / Double Breasted Blazer + White denim + Over the knee suede bootsJ.Crew Double Breasted Blazer in Wool (similar in Super 120s wool or here in white) / Cole Haan Suede Boots (old, but for a splurge see here) / Paige Verdugo Ultra Skinny White Denim / 3.1 Phillip Lim 31 Minute Medium Clutch / Forever21 Rings / Golden by TNA V-Neck Tee / Dogeared Necklace

I actually purchased this J.Crew blazer in regular sizing as opposed to petite sizing, just praying that it was going to fit because I got it for such a good deal ($40!). I’ve been dying to add a double-breasted blazer to my wardrobe, but couldn’t find that was just right and didn’t cost me my left leg. To my surprise, it fit just about perfectly. I may just add this J.Crew double-breasted blazer in Super 120s Wool to complete a non-traditional suit for work, or this white one for more casual days.

Something worth noting, Olivia Palermo and Chelsea28(Nordstrom’s house brand) have collaborated on a spring collection that looks pretty darn good! Check out these wide leg trousers, this sleeveless suede trench, and this double-breasted denim blazer!
