When packing for California, I always pack several jackets and blazers. It may get warm here in Carlsbad throughout the day (currently around 75 degrees and sunny), but it can get pretty darn chilly at night! Regardless of whether I’m seated inside in a cold restaurant or outside with the breeze, I just know I’ll be way more comfortable if I plan my outfit around said jacket.
For my birthday, I wanted to sport something a little more elevated than my go-to jean jacket, but not as dressy as a pashmina. When I found this exquisite boyfriend blazer at EXPRESS last week, I knew it was just the ticket! This blazer is one of the standout pieces (and my fave) from EDITION, the new luxury capsule collection from EXPRESS. This cool collection features the same tailored silhouettes you’ve come to love from EXPRESS, but with a fresh, modern twist. Utilizing fine fabrics and hand embellishments, it’s an elevated collection with endless possibilities.
A blazer like this one will become an instant classic in my wardrobe, I’m just sure of it! I have quite the collection of blazers already, but what I lacked before was a cocktail-appropriate option. I’m such a fan of the fancy tuxedo look you always see from designers like Stella McCartney, and I’m thrilled to have found an option that fits in my budget! I love it so much I’m considering pulling the trigger on the black one too.
