Change Is In The Air





Banana Republic Green Sweater - XS (2009) (buy similar here)
Abercrombie Kids Lace Cami - L (buy similar here)

Can I start off by saying how much I love this blazer?  It's like a mix between a slouchy boyfriend blazer and a tailored tuxedo blazer.  I love the fact that it comes right to my hips and has nice narrow sleeves.  I actually love the fact that it's not perfectly tailored in at the waist as it makes it a nice casual look that's great if you don't want people asking you why you're so dressed up when it's just another day at the office. 

And Texas weather is changing again -- another day for 15 degree temperature drops.  This explains the need for layers and the super warm knitted scarf.  Now if you think Texas people can't drive in the rain, I will tell you that they don't know how to dress for cold weather either.  Every time the weather gets down to below 40 degrees, I swear I will still see at least one person dressed in shorts, a t-shirt, and flip flops.  I'm not kidding.  :)

That's a great blazer but I'm also drooling over your fabulous infinity scarf, it looks so warm and snuggly.

I love the blazer. to set the record straight I live in Ohio where it's far from warm. Yet during the last bad snow storm when I went to Wal Mart there was definitely a guy wear gym shorts. There was a foot or two of snow already on the ground so it wasn't like it got cold over night. Some people are just clueless.

You nailed the Texas attire completely! Years ago when we lived out there I used to tell my wife, There goes a Texan!" "How do you know?" "He isn't wearing any clothes!" I don't get it?

You're so gorgeous!

There are a ton of people dressed in tshirts, flipflops and shorts here too! I can't believe that they'd just ignore winter fashion!

Please stop by my blog, I tagged you for an award.

I was surprised by the warmer weather earlier this week. In fact, I just said to my husband that those temps were not so bad to come back to after having been in Hawaii for 2+ weeks. Today is indeed very eeky. I am one of those who don't know how to dress for the cold weather heh. I don't like having to wear many layers, and I'm also one of those who get cold very easily. Stay warm!

serenadeveryday said... [Reply]

I want that blazer!! The circled off edges jumped out at me. You look so warm and cozy. Jeans! I feel like most of the time you're wearing skirts recently. Is that just me? Is your work strict with dress code??

<3 S.

kileen said... [Reply]

@serenadeveryday our work is pretty lax with dress code. the only reason for the prevalence of skirts/dresses lately is that it's that lovely TOTM. TMI, sorry. :)

Donna said... [Reply]

cute infinity scarf :D

lol i know what you mean about people dressing weird even when it's cold here in texas. just like today, on my way to school, some girl was wearing a hefty bubble jacket, leggings, and FLIP FLOPS.

she's really that cold... LOL

Fashion Momma said... [Reply]

That blazer is amazing! I also adore your chunky scarf. :) And if I had all the money in the world (or some of it), I would try to purchase your entire shoe collection.

kileen said... [Reply]

Ashley said... [Reply]

That's a great blazer! I have one similar to it, and I basically live in it. :)

I really really love your cute scarf, too!

Amy said... [Reply]

Looking sharp as always! I'm wondering, are those F21 pumps comfortable? I have a pair of F21 shoes that are pretty good, but they don't have a high heel so I'm wondering if those are bearable :O

kileen said... [Reply]

@Amy i would say that these pumps are reasonably comfortable. my only issue is that the padding isn't very soft so if you are planning on walking long distances, i wouldn't recommend them. otherwise, they're a great shoe!

Amy Z. said... [Reply]

I LOVE the blazer on you! It fits you so well , like it was tailored specifically to you!

Nelah said... [Reply]

I'm becoming such a big fan of infinity scarves! With normal scarves, I'm always worried that the ends are going to accidentally get dirty bc I'm not paying attention to them but I never have to worry about these. The blazer is a perfect fit - what a great find!

Tara said... [Reply]

That blazer is really cute...it looks so versatile!

Justine said... [Reply]

Awesome blazer find. I need to get myself one. And now I need to go to UO!

I like your blazer better than the one currently on UO. I want one now after seeing your pics. I'm still waiting for the Theory blazer to go on sale, can't bring myself to pay $180ish.

The blazer does look fabulous on you.. and so do those sky high heels. I'm weary about buying shoes from F21 though. Are those comfy?
