Factory Knit Stripe Blazer (J.Crew, $94.50)

A knit jersey blazer is a surprisingly versatile addition to your wardrobe.  I bought one last year at a consignment shop thinking that I would wear it a couple of times.  I wore it nearly a half-dozen times in one month.  I was amazed at how well it transitioned from fall to spring and casual to office.

Check back at 1:00PM for Two Ways to wear this blazer.

    This blazer just answered the question I was going to ask you today! I'm going to the Congressional Women's softball game tomorrow night for the first time and wasn't quite sure what the dress code was. I'm thinking that if I bring something like this to throw over a simple tank and white jeans, I'm good!
    Any other tips?

    Just bought it! If you use the promo code SHOPNOW, you can get 30% off. With shipping and tax, I got it for about $80.

    Ah, the joys of consignment shopping. That's all I have to contribute.

The Mondays: June 17, 2024

From the rooftop deck of my D.C. hotel I can see it all. The Capitol building, where I worked on and off for a decade. My first apartment where my three-doors-down neighbor was a young Senator Obama. My second apartment building where I bounced from unit-to-unit as my salary rose and I was finally able […]
