Simple Neutrals

Simple neutrals

J.Crew Sydney Jacket

Tipped peacoat & tall boots
Blazer: J.Crew (now 30% off with code GIVETHIS) | Blouse: Banana Republic (in solid black here) | Coat: J.Crew (two seasons' ago, this season's here, also 30% off) | Jeans: Topshop | Boots: Stuart Weitzman | Bag: Valentino (available at Nordstrom or Farfetch, where I found mine) | Bracelets: David Yurman | Watch: Michele | Lips: NARS "Yu" + Fresh Sugar Berry

For the last week or so, it has been very hard to believe it's December in Denver. While mornings can be chilly, I've found myself carrying my coat and wishing I hadn't worn boots by noon almost daily. I know the snow will be back soon, though, so I haven't given up hope for a white Christmas.

Last weekend, sunshine and 60-degree weather made it comfortable to be out and about in a 3/4-sleeve blazer. This blazer (the Sidney style from J.Crew) has become one of my favorite wardrobe staples over the last few months. I originally purchased a pinstriped version as part of a suit, and I loved how flattering and slim the fit was without any alterations. Although J.Crew's suiting pieces can be spendy, they often run 25-30% off promotions (like the one they're running right now with code GIVETHIS). To me, the cost is worth it when I don't have to spend additional time and money getting them tailored to fit.

I'm off to my work holiday party this evening--I'll share my look with you next week. Hope you have a great weekend!

Happy Friday!
