wearing lately: in your opinion

Many moons ago - again, how did it get to be December already?! - I requested opinions on which color blazer I should buy, and before that, which size bubble necklace. Consensus won out in both cases: I went with the navy blazer rather than fuchsia, and the smaller version of the necklace instead of the original.

And you all were right! I love them both and have found them very versatile and useful additions to my wardrobe. While the necklace has been seen around here a lot (ad nauseum perhaps, but I can't help it if it goes with everything!), the blazer hasn't made it into as many pictures. So here they are together in a recent outfit perfect for running errands on a mild late fall day.

I should add that weird as it feels to be wearing rolled jeans, flats, and no coat as we go into December, I'm perfectly happy to keep doing so... Blazer weather is great, and Cincinnati is pretty great for blazer weather. I didn't really have any in Michigan because it seemed like there were so few days that it was the right temperature for one - and trying to get one under a winter coast is a bit of a beast. This classic piece is worth having here though!

  2. The blazer and the necklace are such classic staple pieces! And I'm loving the rolled up jeans -- who thought we'd be able to get away with such things in December?! For once, I'm not going to complain about Cincinnati weather :)
