Tweed Blazer

September 24, 2012

I created a list recently on my phone called “style needs” to keep me on track when shopping. Otherwise, I spend money on, yes, cute items, but probably ones quite similar to what I own that don’t help me eliminate my real need for certain items for a more well-rounded wardrobe. (remember this post on the “nothing to wear syndrome?” Exactly.). Ok, on my list are fitted boyfriend jeans, minimalist strappy black heels with an ankle strap, amazing pointy-toe black heels, a few other items, and… a tweed blazer! I’ve wanted a Chanel-esque blazer for ages so when I stumbled across this at Zara (ok, truth, Tiffany found it and I immediately ripped it off the rack!) and then it fit me like so, I had an instant obsession moment.

What are the items on your wardrobe need (not want) list for Fall??  (ps: keep reading for more photos + where everything is from).

Yeah… had a moment over these mini spikes.

blazer: zara (can’t find online; similar and zara blazers) || tee: j. crew factory || jeans: joe’s (similar) || heels: sam edelman via loehmann’s on clearance ages ago (similar in black, gorgeous!, || necklace: tiffany & co. (similar for $4!) || watch: burberry || bag: louis vuitton speedy ||

    Love the blazer- funny coincidence, I’ve been looking for a tweed blazer too, and just found a Zara one for me, too, and was thinking I could do a white t/jeans combo! Great minds, right? You look great, Alyson! The stud details are awesome!

    Super cute outfit, lady. I would’ve done the same thing - that blazer is amazing and looks soooo good on you. I love the little spikes and the pleated back to it!

    I try to keep a list like that as well - and try not to buy too many things like what i already have (it is such a problem!)
