WEEKEND BASICS: Velvet blazer, dark denim and draped scarf

Here's the polished, laid-back look I mentioned last weekend when I wore a cotton blazer.  Although this blazer is velvet, the same look is acquired with blazers in any darker colors.  The strong shape of a classic blazer really defines the outfit.
This weekend was full of running errands and for that, I like to be relaxed in jeans, warm in layers, and comfy in flats.
Lacoste blazer (old, corduroy version w/ elbow batch here) / Karl Lagerfeld for Impulse scarf (old) / J Brand jeans / 
Jessica Simpson flats (on sale!) / Chloe wallet (often used as a clutch)


For those in the US, lets take a moment to remember and honor Martin Luther King, Jr.  His birthday was last Tuesday but the third Monday of January is when we observe it so I thought that since it is a federal holiday tomorrow, we can all take a moment to honor him today.  It's a great feeling to know that you have an extra day to your weekend so enjoy it for the both of us.  I must say though that I find it a bit ironic that I, as well as all my colleagues, have to work today, ha!
