I’m a big fan of pairing investment pieces with more affordable items you pick up here and there. For example, this Helmut Lang blazer– while scored at their sample sale in the fall (alongside this one), was still an investment to me but given how often I wear it, I figure it was well worth it. That being said, I love pairing it with pieces like this blouse with sheer paneled inserts and pumps, both from Zara. Dressed down with my favorite boyfriend jeans, the Josefinas from 7 for All Mankind (seriously the best boyfriend jeans ever), it’s an easy outfit to go from work to post-office cocktails.
While extremely expensive, I cannot recommend Helmut Lang’s blazers highly enough. Their are cut to perfection and can be paired with everything so I feel they are a worthwhile investment (but let’s be honest, much better investments when scored at deep discounts at the sample sale!). I have my eye on this one next.
Snapped these photos outside my neighborhood favorite Cafe Ost where Taylor and I often meet up for early morning coffees before we start our days. It’s a tradition I’ve come to love in our little East Village hood (on her blog today, too).
Hope you all enjoyed the weekend- happy Monday!
