Day Late: Like Anne, I’m wearing my blazer a day after the designated blazer day. It seemed sort of ridiculous to wear a blazer on a non-teaching day when I was working at home. So today it is. One thing I found tricky today with this blazer is what to do in terms of outerwear. It’s gotten cold here again (legitimately cold, not the general, wimpy “cold” we typically get here) and the blazer really didn’t cut it as an inner/ outerwear combo. The thing is, I really hate wearing a coat over top of a blazer. If A-Dub’s legs get claustrophobic with jeans tucked into boots, my arms feel the same way about being encased in both a blazer and a seasonally appropriate coat. So, like a teenager, I spurned warmth for fashion. Fortunately, I’ve been outside for maybe 5 minutes.
Blazer: Addition Elle (remixed)
Striped top: Old Navy
Pants: NY & Co. (remixed)
This was an outfit I liked more in theory than in execution. I think I could have used a necklace or something and I would have preferred to wear my originally scheduled shoes, rather than this late, weather mandated substitute.
Black, faux-wrap top: Joe
Black under layer: Target
Grey pin-striped pants: Target
Purple and silver scarf: gifted, my sister brought this beautiful silk scarf back for me from Italy

Apologies for the poor photo — I was looking for new photo locations. This was not a winner.
I also felt like this outfit looked better in my mind than in execution. It’s fine but that’s about it. Stupid February.
Anyone else finding it impossible to dress for February? Shouldn’t this be month that’s automatically cancelled for those of us in the northern hemisphere?
