A little bit rock 'n roll

Lately I've been smitten with any top that combines the tailored silhouette of a blazer with the malleable fabric of a sweater. A swazer, if you will. I got this one for Christmas and absolutely love it, right down to the leather trim. I added a bit of roll 'n rock edge with a layered necklace, a zipper-accented purse and booties. I wore this outfit to a 'working' dinner with B and my parents (step 1 of my NY resolution to manage my own investments), and I liked it enough to wear it again the next day for work.

  3. The Sweater blazer is fun, I like the leather trim detail :)

  4. Wow, this 'sweazer' is fantastic, I love the little bit of the leather trim, it makes the tweed really cool! (I'm so going to keep my eyes open for something like this at the thrift store now, it's so cool looking! I'm normally not a fan of the classic women's tweed blazers but this one has just the best silhouette and love the leather.) And oh! It's perfect with your burgundy pants!
