The Plaid Blazer: Splurge vs. Save

29 January

I just flew home after another unforgettable week in London with my friends at Jo Malone London (remember my trip with the brand this past September?)… I will be sharing more soon but in the meantime, here’s my favorite look from the trip!  A matching plaid blazer and pant suit that I wore out for our dressiest evening.  I actually scooped up two plaid blazers while in London this past week.  One splurge, and one amazing score of a save.  They’re pretty much all I’ve been wanting to wear since.

The Isabel Marant splurge blazer and matching pants fit like a glove.  As Isabel does on me… hence why I have such a soft spot for the brand.  I’ve been wanting a new suit and dressier pant option in general for awhile now and love that this lighter plaid is perfect for transitioning into spring and summer.  So of-the-moment and yet classic.  The suit looks awesome together and yet both the blazer and pants are quite versatile so I have already been planning wearing them separately.  The & Other Stories save of a blazer is a bit boxier and a slightly darker beige pattern.  I wore it on my last day in London and traveled in it home as well.  It’s that comfy!
