Back in love

This blazer was something I absolutely had to have, so much so that I bought it from another blogger when I realized it had sold out in the store.

I wore it a lot at first, but then newer and better things came along and the wide striped blazer got ignored.

True to form, when I saw someone else wearing a striped blazer a couple weeks ago, I was inspired to take it out, and now here it is again, second week in a row.

Gorgeous dress! I like the bright mint against the darker colors, a great way to liven up fall outfits.

Lisa said...

Oh, Lyddie...you have done it again. Another marvelous outfit. I understand why you pursued that blazer so ardently; its gorgeous. I want. :)

Lorena said...

I know what you are saying... you stalk a piece down and then wear it and then something else comes along.... happens to me all the time :/
glad you are wearing it again !

Thank you for visiting my blog and your cute comments:)

Raquelita said...

It's a great piece! I'm only going to be teaching two days a week next semester, though, so I don't feel like I can justify any additional blazer purchases at the moment, but at some point I'd love to add a striped blazer to my collection.

Caroline Susanto said...

that stripes blazer really looks good on you :)


Little-Hat said...

Amanda said...

great look! The green dress really suits you =)

Krystal said...

keep that blazer forever!

Frannie Pantz said...

Obviously you're familiar, but I can't tell you how many times that has happened to me. I adore your striped blazer. I've been looking for some patterned blazers to add to my closet too and I think it was Dillards where I saw a bunch of them. I really want a striped one. Nonetheless, you look great in yours and I love that you wore this pretty mint dress!

Rachel Ashely said...

I love pieces like this that you can discover and rediscover. Keeper!

Shey said...

I love that blazer, anything striped, for some reason I had it in my mind that black and white stripes were only meant for Spring but come to look at it you can still wear it in the Fall/Winter, nice, you look very polished and pretty. =)

TaraMixandMatch said...

It is perfect over the gorgeous green color!

christine said...

Why is that? When you forget about something then you see someone else wearing it...we get inspired to wear it again? haha I love how you paired it with the dress and the tall boots!

Franziska said...

All the black accessories (that bag!!) look great against that teal. I still can't believe you thrifted that purse.

Midnight Cowgirl said...
