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!

Covered

Feeling a bit under the weather over the past week. This, combined with the extremely low temperatures (winter has finally caught up!), all I want to do is hibernate under the covers. I’m hoping to get some much needed rest, despite having a very under-exercised pup that wants to play in the wee hours of the morning.

In the meantime, I’ll cover up in this cozy poncho.
