Blazer with Hoodie

April 12, 2020

So  … did I really get this dressed up to go on a car coffee date with the hubby this weekend? I did indeed!  I think I just felt like dressing cute.  And I’ve been wanting to try the hoodie with a blazer trend.  I couldn’t imagine it being very comfortable, but actually, if the hoodie fits well and the blazer is a bit roomy, it IS comfortable … and warm too.

I think everything in this look is on sale right now! The sale prices only show up on the links sometimes, so you might have to click to see the actual current price.

But I bet you could recreate this look with items in your closet as well.

And yes, we did sneak out of the car for a quick impromptu photo shoot. I just couldn’t resist this totally empty and quaint little alleyway in downtown San Jose.

How is everyone doing lately?  Are you hanging in there?  What do you miss the most?  I’m doing pretty well with it all and as I said before, I’m enjoying the slower pace. But I sure do miss some things. Today I’m missing taking long weekend rides.  Sure, we drive around a bit, but we’re not supposed to cross county borders.  And even if we could, we definitely don’t want to use a public restroom. so that cuts our trips short!  I miss lunch by the ocean. I miss checking out random open houses. I miss the mall.  And I even miss aimlessly browsing around Target.  Hang in there, Dolls!  And keep in touch and let me know how you’re doing and what you miss the most today.

Be safe & stay healthy,

Dawn Lucy

    You know I love an edgy look and this one is divine! It reminds me of The Breakfast Club. You look fabulous my dear!

      Breakfast Club … oh, such fun memories. You’re making me want to watch it again. And Pretty in Pink! And St. Elmo’s Fire! And .. and … and …. 😂

    Hi Dawn,
    I just finished ordering a very similar blazer, love the look! It will be fun to get back out there and be able to dress up a little more than I do around the house. Although I always get dressed, put on my face and earrings and perfume! That keeps me somewhat sane while we navigate these strange times.

      It’s so important to do those little things that keep us sane, Hon! I have another outfit with a plaid blazer coming up soon too! Yay!!

    Great blog. I just ordered the hoodie in Charcoal. You should also check out the re-issue of the Adidas Superstar. I just ordered those as well in white. You probably already own a pair!
    I do have a quick question…I receive your newsletter, but not your blog. While I’m here I’ll subscribe again, but just double check that I’m not on twice.
    Keep up the great style.
    be well / xoxox Kate

      Hi Kate,

      I don’t have a pair of Adidas Superstars … do I need to put that on my sopping list? I love a charcoal hoodie. Tag me when you post a pic of the outfit! I’m going to try to add you to my list to get notified whenever a new post comes out. I’ve kind of let that list go, because people seem to like the once a week only email better. Let me know if you start getting notified! And thanks so SO much for stopping by the blog! I LOVE to hear from readers.
