Brown Corduroy Blazer & Colorblocked Dress

Now that it’s seriously getting colder in the Lou, I can begin shaking the dust off my colder weather wardrobe favorites like this brown corduroy blazer from Banana Republic.  Would you believe that I’ve owned this blazer for 10 years?  What’s truly unbelievable is that the blazer still looks new.  No signs of wear on the exterior nor the lining.  Talk about well-made (and well cared for)!

A blazer worn over a straight-cut dress has become a go-to look for me so far this Fall.  It’s quite easy to reach for blazers daily because they so effortlessly transition from professional and polished to hip and casual.
