Back to Blazers

Dear Christine,

Guess where we’re back to jackets? That’s right, New York. It’s been a rather cold week and twice has barely broken 60 degrees. Not the start for June I was hoping for after a cool, rainy May.

I guess I’ve gotten a lot of new things lately. These earrings are from by boe’s Studio collection, which is edgier and more conceptual than the classic wire jewelry– like these Native American-inspired earrings. Everything else is older though, except for the bag that I swapped with a friend.

I always seem to be wearing these pants with black. What color should I wear them with next time?


Ann Taylor blazer | Francesca’s Collections cardigan | Zara shirt | DL1961 Emma Legging Jeans | MIA ankle boots (DSW) | Marc by Marc Jacobs east-west bag (swapped with Laura) | by boe Cubilete Bracelet | by boe Oak Earrings

    You should wear these pants with, hmm, oh, EVERYTHING??? Oh, you know I love them, Alex. Wear them with white next time? (At least, maybe when it’s sunnier.)

    OH no…blazer?  In early JUNE!?!?!?!?!  So…I am on the no jacket ban until October.  And while we’ve had a few chilly days this week I refused to pull out that jacket/blazer..ok so I wore a jean jacket but that doesn’t really count does it???

    You don’t have to tell me, this weather is despicable!

    That cityscape is SOOOO gorgeous. I want my outfit photos there, darn it.

    And you know me, I’d wear them with yellow, or blue, DEFINITELY leopard or stripes or floral…. ya know. just pretend they are a neutral.

    Yea this weather has been CrAAAAzy!! Who would’ve thought that jackets and sweaters are necessary for June?! I love the color of those pants…I think I probably would do the same thing and match it with black…then try to explore other options…maybe a chambray button down shirt?? Some might even suggest leopard print!
