Tweed Blazer and Boyfriend Jeans


I love a fancy blazer with ratty jeans. I don't know what it is about this look but I just love it. It's an easy look to put together. Putting on a pair of high heeled booties adds a bit of edge to the look and you know how I like to add a bit of edginess to my outfits. Or do you? Well, anyway...

You can't really see from the photos, but I'm wearing a neck warmer instead of a traditional scarf. It's very warm and it doesn't take over the outfit. I wanted the focus to be the blazer. It's too wonderful to hide with a big bulky scarf or lots of jewels.

This is definitely my favorite outfit of 2011.

Have a great weekend!











Blazer: Funktional via Hawthorn Boutique in Oakland, CA
Jeans: J Crew
Neck warmer: BR
Gloves: Gap
Booties: Nine West
Sunglasses: Cole Haan
Bag: DKNY

Boyfriend jeans and booties? Have I done that before? I don't think I have! Why not? It's perfect! Going to try it out.

Cute outfit and love that blazer. I love the contrast of a tailored ladylike top or blazer with ratty jeans too.
