The Story Of The Thrifted Blazer...

It's Hump Day already! 

Thank goodness the work week is halfway over!!! I'm already thinking of things to do for the weekend. There's a wine festival going on in my area and that's sounding pretty tasty considering how my week is going thus far!

Speaking of outdoor events, has anyone noticed that it started to get cold really quickly? I mean last week it was in the 90's and this week we're barely making it to 70! WITW!!!

I guess I'm going to have to put away outfits like this until next season.

The blazer just might be able to stay for a while but the shorts and sandals definitely have to go. And I'm sad about it because I feel like my summer was sooo short.

Actually, I'm fine with keeping the blazer in the arsenal for a couple more weeks. 

I mean I love the fall weather but there's just something about bare legs that do it for me. 

I hate a stocking! 

More about the blazer though. 

I thrifted it a while ago as part of a skirt suit but I figured that the whole suit would just be too much so I decided to wear it as a separate.

I love that it doesn't button straight down; the buttons are off center, if you will, so as to add some dimension and edge. 

The fact that it's cropped allowed me to wear a long shirt to break up the the leopard print and the effect of the dip dyed Bermudas that I DIY'ed in this post.

I felt that it would be perfect to add this thrifted two-toned, carry-on bag in order to bring out the color in the blazer.

Add a subtle green accessory and shoe....
