I picked this tweed blazer up on mega, mega sale (read: almost $300 down to ... $18). It was the very last one on the rack, a little too big for my frame, and most certainly not what I was in the market for that day (went out for groceries & bedding and came home with a blazer & hair thickening conditioner - what?), but felt like a sensible addition at such a bargain. Once I got home I discovered that it pairs well with just about everything, and that it will instantaneously dress up a jeans & a blouse, a dress, or dress pants & an over sized sweater. I'm pretty stoked about its pairing possibilities, and get giddy to add tweed to my wardrobe in anyway that I can (documented giddiness here!). 

I'm also pretty in love with this blazer, from the same brand as the one pictured above. The second last photo has my heart a-blaze for Spring!

See you tomorrow!
