While I love my classic black blazer (last seen here and here), I appreciate a little variety now and then. So, when I spotted this houndstooth blazer by Julie Brown, I knew it would be the perfect piece for a date night with my husband or cocktails with friends. I paired it with my favorite boyfriend jeans (size down because this particular style runs big) and these timeless and flattering pointed toe heels. I always prefer to take my outfit photos outdoors but this past weekend was ridiculously cold so I couldn’t bring myself to brave the elements, arctic wind and all. We quickly snapped these pics before heading out and escaping the madness (my four year old was zipping back and forth in his ninja costume as I tried to strike a pose…#momlife).
