A Festive Little Jacket

Perhaps it’s my move to Maine a few years ago, or maybe it’s just the resurgence of plaid in fashion, but I am loving me some tartan! Thankfully, my local thrift shops are ripe for the wooly plaid pickin’. I found a super fun blazer last weekend for $2 (woot for half price color days).

I love pairing tartan with black and saddle leather brown. It tones the print down a bit so you don’t wind up looking like this:

On some sick level, I do think he’s rocking this outfit. But, I played it safe:

Black skinny pants: H&M
Gray ruffle shirt: local boutique
Tartan blazer: vintage
Boots: L.L.Bean
Watch: Michale Kors

Oh, and speaking of my watch, this was Ross’s Christmas present to me. Yep, I’m already wearing it. I wanted an over sized watch, and when I found this rose goldtone Michael Kors watch I fell in love. Since he is a super tricky online bargain hunter he managed to get it majorly on sale. Score.

Have you been rocking any festive holiday-inspired looks?

About sweetersalt

Salt = sodium = bad. Sweet = calories = bad. Well, isn't that just a bleak outlook. I firmly believe that without salt and without sweet we all just live in a world of lettuce. Plain lettuce. Fun? No. This blog is about life. Namely, my life. But, not that specific. I myself am simply not that interesting. I live an ordinary life, work an ordinary job and do ordinary things. But... life is all about experiencing that feeling you get when you really, really like something. If you don't feel a little warm in your heart when you walk into a farmer's market or try on a piece of beautiful clothing that fits you perfectly (that just so happens to be a great deal!) then you should probably keep on a' movin' from my little plot of internet. Sweeter salt is my metaphor for the good things in life, sprinkled over everything in moderation. Banana? Kinda boring. Banana smoothie - yum! White tank top? Yawn. Statement necklace layered over said tank - now we're talking! I live in Portland, Maine. I love cooking, eating out, riding my bike and approachable fashion. This blog does not chronicle my every waking moment. This is because you will probably not be entertained by the 10th day in a row that I eat the exact same salad for lunch. It does chronicle a healthy, active, fun-filled, colorful lifestyle, in Portland and beyond. It also covers dogs. Cute ones mostly.
