Red, White and Navy Plaid with Plaid

plaid + stripes

OK, the bow on the staircase - I haven't decided to leave my holiday decor up year-round now or anything, I'm just incredible tardy in posting this outfit on the blog as I took these pics back in mid-December (I know, I know). But I felt like this outfit was still timely since I copied myself and wore the same exact ensemble to the office (on a freezing-ass-should-have-worn-pants-and-boots-instead day, by the way) late last week. So I guess I'm not late, I'm just being really proactive, right?

Buffalo and Stripes

In the tiny but colorful world I rule that is called my closet, I admit to having lots of favorites, but this coat is for realz, a true favorite of mine. It helps that it feels like I have a big warm blanket when I have it on, and with this winter being all about the buffalo plaid, I like being on-trend, especially when it involves an item I already own. And the shorter sleeves just means I get to show off a bit of contrasting cuff.

Schoolboy Red Plaid

I don't know why this is only my second Schoolboy blazer ever, but I can now see why J.Crew brings back this classic style season after season. And granted it is not the most feminine of blazer cuts, I like the slender and structured shape, just the right amount of tomboy for me.

Citron Lexington

Ebay is pretty much my go-to spot for finding long lusted after treasures and this blazer is no exception. The beautiful thick wool, the silk trim and lining inside the blazer and those buttons! There's nothing like some "vintage" J.Crew and their timeless styles and higher-end quality - 2006-2007 was a banner year for the brand, in my opinion. I couldn't really afford J.Crew way back when, but I can catch up via  Ebay now!
