{outfit} The Old-Timer

This blazer has been in my closet for 8 years and my love for it has never faltered.  It was my first designer buy and it's longevity proves I made the right choice all those years ago! I wore this for a quick trip to NYC last week to see a friend I haven't seen since our trip to London 2 years ago!  After that I headed to New Jersey for dinner at a friends house.

I can already tell that these boots my mom bought at Marshalls for my birthday are going to be getting a LOT of wear this Fall/Winter! They are classic, basic and super comfortable! I walked through NYC and an outlet mall in Jersey in them with no pain.  And these Mother Denim jeans are more like sweatpants because they're so soft! I'm not even sure if I should consider them jeans, but I do.

Blazer: Marc Jacobs (eBay, here, here, here, here and here), Tee: Everlane, Jeans: Mother Denim c/o Marshalls, Boots: Vince Camuto (Marshalls), Bag: Etienne Aigner (thrifted), Watch: Marc by Marc Jacobs (Gilt), Sunglasses: Marc by Marc Jacobs (Shopbop), Ring c/o Kendra Scott,  Necklace: Marrin Costello (available soon!)

  8. I love this whole outfit on you! I'm also a big fan of Mother Jeans, the fit and comfort is amazing, I wished I owned more besides my one pair.


  9. Sounds like you had such a fun day! Glad to hear the booties were a great buy. I am on the hunt for a new black pair this year, last years are a bit worse for wear (altercation with a brick porch).

  17. I'm not surprised to hear that this blazer is a long-time favorite. It looks brilliant. I love those items that one can wear again, and again....and again; ones that wait, like familiar friends to go out and about again.

  18. That is such a lovely velvet blazer! :)

    I can tell it's getting colder in the US because this is the third velvet post I've stumbled across in my blog reading, haha! it is a great texture for cooler weather! :)
