Back to pictures where the data is known to me, hurray! I wore this on my first day back from San Francisco, because Chicago has -officially- fallen into autumn. It’s a brisk ride in the mornings to school, and this blazer was perfect. I got this at a swap when the weather was far too warm for it, and have been waiting (im)patiently to wear it ever since.
The funny thing about this blazer is I almost didn’t go for it, thinking the tweed was a little old fashioned, and not exactly in my colors. I grabbed it mostly because I’ve been wanting blazers like mad for a while now, and had had so little success finding ones that fit, that I jumped on this one in the end. The funny part is I saw a pretty much identical blazer at Forever21 in San Francisco on Sunday, so…not so old fashioned, I guess!
Even with this guy and my plaid blazer, I still want a nice, basic, black peplum shoulder-padless blazer. I guess I have my new thrifting mission, if I should have ever have some free time to go thrifting. Maybe when Mia comes to town in November…well, at least almost for sure then! But that’s over a month and a half away, and by then, we’ll be a little bit past optimal blazer weather, I think. All the better for finding them in thrift stores though!
