Chambray and Plaid

Hopefully soon I will be introducing more color back into my wardrobe, and transitioning my workwear from jeans, boots, and a sweater into what I feel more comfortable in, skirts, dresses, blazers, and heels.

This outfit was a good start, though I must confess that I wore boots to work, and it was only as I was leaving in the afternoon that it had subsequently warmed up enough for me to throw on heels for photos and my errands.

  1. I'm a fan of both tartan and denim trend.. Pulling this off together is really a bomb.. AMazing styling..


    I can rock any outfits, come follow my online diary

  2. Love the color of those shoes! I really hope the weather warms up soon. This is not fun.
    And of course it's supposed to rain the day I got to the city....blegh! The weather hates me

  3. I totally feel you, Lydia. I am dying to pack up my tights for the year and say sayanara to cold weather styles. It was super warm in Seattle for a couple weeks and is currently back to cold and drizzly (just in time for spring!). I have a new little blazer I'm dying to wear with a dress, thanks to your inspiration!

  4. This blazer is perfection on you, I love it with the plaid!

  5. Love this look!! And I am in love with those heels! The color is gorgeous.

  9. I like the chambray jacket with the plaid shirt and its good to see less snow and to know that Spring is coming soon .

  10. You've made this so sophisticated (which is no mean feat for plaid and denim) - I love it!

  15. I was so taken aback, seeing you without a coat after the crazy winter you've had. It's a wonderful change, though, and I hope more warm weather is coming your way because I know you're anxious to be back in your favourite skirts and dresses and, since you have one of the most enviable summer wardrobes I know of, I'm not going to lie - I'm a little anxious for that, too ;) Plus, your heels deserve to be taken out, this pair is just gorgeous!

  16. I truly hope that day comes for you sooner than later although I love your winter looks--especially this one! This blazer is such a score. I love it with the plaid!

  17. I love this look and a great fan of chambray.

  18. This is spring transition done perfectly--that blazer is awesome and I love those heels! Glad it warmed up a little!
