Black & White Stripes






It’s a veritable heat wave here!  With temperatures close to 70 degrees it is not feeling a lot like Christmas.  But it is feeling like a nice day to go to the playground so that’s what we did.  And I wore one of my favorite playground ensembles that takes me easily for a bite to eat on the way home.  I was happy to bring the boyfriend jeans out of the close and not have to bundle up in boots and socks.  But I’m ready for temps to go down and still holding out hope for a white Christmas!

Mixing It Up: Theory Leather Trim Blazer Four Ways

Lanai blazer

I recently found this Theory blazer on sale at Nordstrom and was floored.  It’s still available full price at so many other retailers! And it’s my favorite style in the most flattering fit (also seen here in white)!  I had to invest (and subsequently hunt down more colors on ebay where I landed an emerald green version that is soon to be featured on the blog).  This blazer is so slimming, so flattering and so versatile that I know I will wear it a million ways to Wednesday.  Here are just a few of the options.  I can’t wait to show you how I’ve styled it!
