Morning Line: January 27

Jan 27, 2016

By mid-winter, I am so sick of wearing blazers.  I look in my closet each morning and think, “Yay, another workday, another blazer.”  When this happens, I grab my drape leather jacket and wear it with my sheath dresses.  It brings in a bit of rocker-chic without looking like I’m heading to a Sid Vicious concert.

    I’m intrigued that you wear blazers in the winter, that sounds so much better than my giant sweaters and huge jackets. I struggle with wearing a blazer under a jacket, I think I look a little silly wearing two jackets, and the shoulders get a little tight in the outside jackets because of the blazer. It’s way too cold to wear a blazer alone though. Tips? How do you handle that in cold weather?

    I have been drooling over that Vince Scuba in blush since it showed up last fall. I keep thinking it might go on sale and still be available in my size. The leather is so soft and buttery it could easily be a year round option for me.

The Range: Eyelet Tops for Summer

Airy eyelet fabrics are one of my favorite spring/summer looks. White is, of course, the traditional fabric. But white is tough to wear when you have a toddler, so let’s go with navy this summer.
