Fall officially begins September 22 but in these parts we thumb our noses to such notions. It’s hot and humid until a cold front comes through. So I am here to tell you that even though our focus is on all things cozy and warm it is time to snatch up the end of season sales that for us southern gals means clothes we can wear all year!
For years I have admired white blazers and how chic they look when added to almost any outfit. I thought I was so lucky to find one at the Ann Taylor Outlet – about 8 years ago. The quality was great and I really liked the fit. The reality? It’s been worn only a couple of times. Why? Because it is lined and way too heavy for comfort. It also seems just a little too “suit-like” and requires dry cleaning. So, when I factor in that I’m probably sweating when I’m wearing it, my self tanner is probably staining it and it needs to be dry cleaned it’s easy to see why it gets passed over.
But that doesn’t mean I’ve given up! Enter my favorite end of the season sale at JCrew. Use code EPIC to save an extra 50%-70% off sale items. Oh this blazer is all the things I wanted. It’s white, it’s cut perfectly, it is machine washable, it is denim and can be dressed up or down. I kept looking at in online, adding it my cart and then taking it out. I read the reviews and then I knew it had to be mine.
It arrived on Friday and I could not tear into the package fast enough. It’s everything I needed and now I totally appreciate JCrew goodness, it is exquisitely made. FYI I don’t use that term very often!
Do you own a white blazer? I can’t wait to share more ways to style this…I also can’t wait for my work life to slow down so I can! Ha!
My favorite post from last week comes from Kathrine of Kathrine Eldridge Designs, I just love this look!
