Wrapped Plaid blazer

Inspired by UmmLila's post about spring checked and plaid jackets plus temperatures in the 30's F, I tried to wrap a blazer this morning.
Not the same look as a denim jacket, but what do you think? Should it be repeated?
Wrap is a closet orphan, an old chocolate cashmere blanket scarf ( usually too big). Blazer is thrifted Brooks Brothers with silk lining. It also is pretty much an orphan as it is rather dressy and prim for my lifestyle. White jeans are EF as is my white tee. Scarf is a cotton table napkin from William Sonoma last year. Snake loafers are old Franco Sarto. Bag is from DSW.
For Ledonna, the blazer is thrifted but is like new.

    I like this a lot!  A great solution to the cold-in-the-early-morning dilemma!

  • Joy replied 3 years ago

    Thank you, Ryce. The outfit was comfortable and going, I wore a leather brown coat over everything that I forgot to photograph. It was fun to wear these near orphans.

    I like it, good for spring especially for the morning and the evening to keep warm.

  • Inge replied 3 years ago

    Yes, this totally works for me. Great idea, Joy. And I love the pattern mixing you have going on. Fun bag too, and how clever to use a fab napkin as a scarf!

    The wrapped topper formula is a winner for you!

  • UmmLila replied 3 years ago

    I like how this turned out, and your color palette.

    I think the wrapped look really refreshes and sparks up the standard blazer over pants look. Nicely done.

    Looks great I think Joy!

    Thank you, Mirjana, Inge, Jenn, UmmLila, Nebraskakim and anne. It seems like this combo is working. I like how the ponch-like scarf changes the blazer and extends its wearability.

    Amazing! you made an extremely good choice.
    Great for the outing.

    Joy this looks very chic! Love the mix of textures and the punch of color with your bag to the neutrals. I am going to steal your napkin idea....brilliant! File this combo away in your keeper collection.

    You look great and wearing a wrap over a blazer makes a lot of sense. It  gives extra warmth without having to wear an overcoat.

  • Joy replied 3 years ago

    Thank you, Lisa, KCourtney and Bonnie. I am so glad that you approve of this combination. It worked well on a cool, fairly casual day. I would like to wear it again.
