Admittedly, this was a bit of an impromptu photo session for this blog post. I thought, ” I love this jacket…let’s do a blog post.” This plaid blazer was a sewing project of my mom’s from the 70’s. Pretty awesome, right? I actually just pulled it out a few days ago, because I had completely forgotten about it. I’m thankful that my mom was apparently the same size as me when she made (or bought) some of these great pieces I’ve confiscated from her archived wardrobe.
And while I love this jacket, the weather was actually just a little too brisk to wear this plaid number and be warm enough-even with a fisherman sweater underneath-for our downtown Cleveland adventures yesterday evening. Even still, for being 40 some years old, these wool threads sure have held up well and hopefully will continue to for years to come.
The bright orange lining makes it even better, in my book.
Also sporting mom’s silver hoop earrings.
It’s a sad fact that these trees behind me were beautifully colored only a couple weeks ago, and now they’re so bare and prepared for the inevitable winter ahead.
