Favored Layers

Thinking back to this time last year, we had already gotten a very snowy experience.  So, it’s pretty typically Cleveland that this year it’s been pretty warm throughout November.  I realize I mention weather a lot on my blog…but really, the weather determines what I wear every day.  That is often how I decide what to put on on a daily basis.  I’m a natural freeze baby, so warmth and comfort level are on the top of my list when I’m deciding what’s appropriate to pull out of my closet every day.  And with Cleveland’s wish-washy climate, dressing for the weather can often be a bit of a challenge.  That’s when I really start to depend on my jackets and blazers as additive layers, they help turn up the notch on an otherwise un-involved ensemble, but also serve their utilitarian purpose.

I had gotten this blazer from H&M a few years ago and it was totally basic.  I also had a dress in the same color that had this awesome shoulder detail but I always thought that the shoulders were a bit too heavy for the knit dress…so I deconstructed the dress, took off these awesome beaded epaulletes and reapplied them to each shoulder of the simple jacket.  The blazer definitely makes a much more appropriate home for the appliques.
