How is everyone adjusting to Daylight Saving Time?
I for one cannot stand this law or act or whatever the heck it is because I’m pretty sure I have S.A.D (seasonal affective disorder). Daylight Saving Time has been used in the U.S and in many European countries since World War I. It was used to conserve fuel needed to produce electric power. Why are we still doing it??? It does make for cozier nights, but that’s about all I can give it credit for. I think so many people get the blues when there is less sunlight, and I am one of those.
I will say, that living in Texas is a lot better than living in Alabama or Tennessee where we used to live. It doesn’t get dark as early here. Anyway, let’s move on to the best plaid blazer I’ve bought this season! Who doesn’t love plaid and who doesn’t want to spend a ton on the softest blazer EVER (unless you are buying a cashmere and want to spend a ton)?
Y’all, this black plaid blazer is seriously one of my favorite purchases this fall.
When I grabbed it to try on, I swear I thought it was cashmere and almost put it back thinking it would be too expensive. It is that that soft and looks that good! It is not cashmere and is $139! I’ve worn it several times and every time I’ve worn it, someone inevitably touches my arm and comments on how stinking soft it is and thinks it’s cashmere! Hahaha, nope, but it sure feels like it! If you don’t have anything in plaid, this blazer might be your piece. I loved this leopard print patch tee paired with the blazer. I like both of these patterns mixed together.
The black jeans I am wearing are on sale if you need black jeans. I really like the frayed hem on them. I know I wear these Gucci mules a lot, but they might be my favorite shoe. Remember, I like to buy items that have a great cost per wear equation and these have paid for themselves a thousand times over (so much so that I’ve had to have them re-soled!).
With the holidays fastly approaching I am going to start my gift guides next week. I know it seems early, but if you think about it, it’s really not. I’m also going to be doing a couple of giveaways and today is a giveaway day and it’s a good one! Be sure to sign up below. I hope you all have a great day! Thank you so much for reading! xx
