I really need to start wearing all my blazers again. I have so many and can't get rid of them because they all hold such special memories and are just plain pretty! I mostly stopped wearing them because I don't go out to many "events" these days and wearing a blazer to the grocery store on the weekend feels funny. But I'm just going to go for it now! They're outerwear, so they're practical for this chilly weather This is one of my more recent blazers, bought for $36 in early 2019. Probably one of my last blazer purchases because I made myself stop buying them.

Blazer: Sandro burgundy double breasted blazer (Roundabout Resale)

Striped Top: Splendid 'Duke' striped pullover c/o Shopbop

Jeans: Everlane high-rise skinny jean in mid-blue

Ankle Boots: Candie's "ChiChi" Faux Suede Platform Heeled Boots c/o Kohl's 

Bag: Dark Purple Chloé Faye (eBay)

Worn on a super windy day a couple weekends ago. I was dying to wear my new Sandro blazer. I have wanted a piece by Sandro for quite a few years but could never afford anything. Then I found this blazer during Roundabout's winter sale for $36! AND it's in one of my favorite colors to wear. For it's first outing I decided to wear it with my Saint Laurent patchwork blouse and flared jeans.

It's funny how depending on what I wear, my Chloe Faye bag slightly "changes" color. When worn with purple it looks like it's actual color - dark purple. When worn with burgundy it matches that too, as you can see in the photos below.

Blazer: Sandro burgundy double breasted blazer (Roundabout Resale), Blouse: Saint Laurent silk patchwork blouse (eBay), Flared Jeans: Free People flares (Marshalls), Boots: Chloé (Roundabout Resale), Sunglasses: Gucci, Bag: Dark Purple Chloé Faye (eBay)

I almost made it through the month without buying any clothes. But then Roundabout sent an email yesterday morning about their winter blowout. 80% off clothes and shoes!! AHH! So I went hoping I wouldn't find anything and I walked out with 3 jackets...whoops!

One is a white blazer which normally isn't my style, because I'm afraid of getting white dirty, but I was drawn to it so now I have to be brave and wear white! Next up is a Sandro Paris burgundy blazer. I've been wanting something from Sandro for quite a few years but could never pull the trigger on anything because they're so pricey. Last is a purple Rag & Bone wool jacket with leather details. I liked it because it's like a blazer but since it's knit that makes it a little more casual.

I'm hoping to get back on track with my no shopping next month, but we'll see! You know I can never pass up an amazing deal if I see one. And I have a $15 credit for The RealReal expiring....

Colors are off a bit in these photos but I took them last night so the lighting wasn't the best. The perils of buying something the day before my wardrobe update is posted!
