Blazer: LOFT | Top: Gap (Similar) | Denim: Citizens | Pumps: Ann Taylor | Necklace: HM | Belt: Ralph Lauren | Glasses: DG | Earrings: Anthropologie | Watch: Michael Kors | Bracelet: David Yurman | Bag: Florence Leather Market (Flower DIY)


Well, this lovely purple blazer has quite the story to go along with its arrival to my closet.  A few days ago I was killing some time at a local outdoor mall when a suuuuuper creepy man on a bike started following me and saying all sorts of awkward things... Luckily, I happened to be walking by LOFT so I was able to sneak in & get away from Mr. Creepy! Since my new friend decided he needed to stall in front of the store, I found it necessary to do some shopping and wait for him to move on...

During my search I found this beautiful, rich purple blazer that I think will work for all seasons! Currently I am wearing it with by darker fall pieces, but I can't wait to pair it will floral tops and bright spring dresses! Eventually, my friend got bored and left and off I went into the sunset with my new favorite jacket!

PS:  This story was not nearly as dramatic as it seems, but it does help rationalize my need for this blazer...

PSS: I couldn't decide if I preferred my pants cuffed or not, so I ended up with a mishmash of pics with different pant cuff situations.  I hope you guys enjoy the "variety"!
