the red blazer

Several months ago, I went on a mad hunt for the perfect red blazer. Initially, I wanted a light-weight ponte one, but when I couldn’t find that, I settled for a classic wool version. Well,  by that time, blazer season was long gone, so I had to put away the blazer until cooler weather arrived.


Fast forward to yesterday, when I finally got around to wearing it for the first time. I decided to go a pretty classic route by pairing the blazer with black gingham and pearls.



I’m already dreaming up some other ways to wear this blazer in the next couple weeks–it’s perfect for Christmas!

  1. this blazer definitely screams holidays, and the entire look oozes southern charm – i love it, caroline! i have a little 3/4 sleeve cropped red jacket that i haven’t gotten a lot of wear out of, but now i want to try wearing it with my black gingham shirt.
