Light Jacket Weather

If there is one thing I wish for in the spring (sartorially speaking) it's light jacket weather. Being in California for two months spoiled me rotten, as it was light jacket weather for the entirety of my stay. I'm now wishing I'd hung out until April so I could have seen all the flowering trees bloom, as here in chilly Connecticut buds are only just starting to appear and I likely won't be seeing any flowers until May.

I'm often pushing the limits of what is weather appropriate. There was no wool coat tucked out of sight on a nearby bench or in the car as there typically is this time of year. Just me in this satin blazer, trying to make a California winter outfit work for a New England spring.

  1. Love those jeans, they look great with the thin stripe! I'm still in Winter dressing mode with sweaters and jeans, haha...hopefully I can break out of it soon

  2. Love this outfit! Such a great color on you!


  3. At least the sun is out and shining - which also works out great for these photos because it really shows off the sheen on that blazer (love the colour of it as well).

  11. This is the perfect look for an office! Love a turtleneck with the light blazer.

  12. Come through rust satin blazer! You're definitely making light work of this light jacket weather. Loving the sun flares in these pics, too.

  13. I really love the colour of that blazer, and the fit of the denim. I'm sure Cali spoiled you. Happy Spring. /Madison

  14. I'm a bit of a blazer-holic. I could literally wear my plaid blazer every day (and sometimes I do). They're just PERFECT for early springtime layering! Love the color of this one.

  15. What a chic look! I always love lighter jackets and blazers for spring time!

  16. That blazer is such a beautiful piece! We are so close to blazer and light jacket weather and I can't wait!

  17. I love that blazer! It's perfect for Spring time, I can't wait for it to be just a bit warmer!

  18. This is such a great outfit, even if the blazer wasn't as cosy as you wished it was on a cold day! I love a good blazer and jeans combo :)

    Hope you're having a lovely week so far :) We finally have some cooler autumn weather - I'm even wearing jeans today!

  19. You can't go wrong with a good blazer! The color of this one is so fun and unique.


  20. Satin blazer? Are you kidding me ? I LOVE IT! The color and fit are so good L.
    The stripe top to match it was quite clever-

  21. I am impressed by your determination to make the weather bend to your will. I doubt I would have managed to get these photos, never mind to spend a whole day without a coat on - I would love to think I could manage it, but history has shown me that I truly am a weather wimp. So I will continue to live vicariously through your efforts to make spring weather hurry up by dressing for it, while I wrap myself in sweaters and hope that it gets warmer before June :P

  22. I love the versatility of this blazer! The color is gorgeous.
