Tailored Black Blazer

I don’t know what just happened. I think I just slept for like, 11 hours (which is pretty crazy for me these days…). Maybe it’s the altitude up her in Vail? Anyway, clearly I was NOT prepared on the blog front when I dozed off into a deep slumber last night….but I DO have this random outfit still in my Drafts folder :) sorry for the randomness, but hey sometimes STUFF happens :) ha!

And now to talk about this outfit (totally took these photos like 2 months ago…don’t judge! At least I’m not wearing floral print and a crop top? It’s still relevant ;))….

I’ve been looking for the perfect black blazer for awhile now. I almost bought the school boy one from J.Crew, but I wanted to keep my options open before jumping the gun. And when I was in New York last month, I stopped by the Madewell store and found this one. Not only did it fit well and felt tailored to me, but the best part is that it’s stretchy – so it’s comfortable!

Have you invested in a black blazer? and if so, is it comfortable (and cute?)?! Please do share ;)

I wasn’t kidding when I told you leggings are BY FAR my favorite thing to wear. And one of my go-to looks is a long sweater, leggings and boots (remember this outfit here?) And so finding a good sweater that can also double as a “legging dress” (ha! …aka long enough to cover my behind!) it’s a win win! And this one is SO soft! I put the turtleneck on under it because (at least on me…) the V-neck was a little too deep for my comfort zone. But after seeing how it looked, I actually preferred the layering look that the turtleneck added.

And how fun is this faux fur collar? I love it. I just wore it over one of my black coats and it added such a glam and fun touch to it!

Lately, I’ve been LIVING In capes and ponchos and I’m loving it. Not only is it cozy and comfy but it’s also warm and (in my opinion) super cute. ;)

I spotted this one while randomly stopping by Dillard’s to pick up some socks. And I was like, “oh, that would be so fun with my red hunters!” AND at the time, it was on sale. So, duh. I got it.

How fun is the color of this sweater? I LOVE it. and I also love how this lipstick (that I’ve become obsessed with…it’s like lip balm!) matches it almost perfectly!  This is another gem I found from the petites section at Nordstrom…and it comes in 8 other colors! I actually tried on the regular-sized sweater first, but it was awkwardly long on me (and a little too tight around my behind to comfortably wear with leggings if you know what I mean?) But this one hit just right ;) Oh, AND it’s 35% OFF!

And have you tried on a pair of Citizens lately? Y’all, I’m telling you they’re great. I basically live in these – so much so that I actually went to Nordstrom yesterday and got another pair of denim skinnies so I could switch it up.

Shop the Look:

Wool & Cashmere Tunic Sweater (35% OFF) // Citizens of Humanity Jeans (worth it!)

Statement Necklace // Leather booties (these are great!)

Danielle Nicole bag // Mirrored Aviators

Kendra Scott Madison Studs (great gifts!) // YSL Lipstick (No. 19)
