Well, today was the last day of the infamous J.Crew 25% off “red card” promo. Of course, being a lazy online shopper, I dreaded and procrastinated going to the store to shop until the last day. I decided I’d pick up the coats I’ve been obsessing over and decide which one to keep later. At least take advantage of the discount when I can, right? So I picked up something that is the epitome of classic – the Schoolboy Blazer in Navy.
I love the brass button detailing on this classic, fitted, go-with everything blazer. I love that you can throw it onto a very casual outfit and you’ll look instantly dressed up and put together. I threw it on over my favorite skirt of the month for a quick modeling pic; sorry these are not the best pics.
I tried to take a second photo to show the cuff buttons better, but I didn’t really succeed, did I? Anyway, is it weird to wear this under a coat for winter? It’s too thin to wear as a standalone jacket when the weather gets a bit chilly, but it seems weird to wear under a coat. Oh well, it’s perfect for this season – not too hot, not too cold.
Get it here from J.Crew for $188.
