Green tweed jacket

Blog, meet my new favorite jacket. It was my only purchase from Black Friday - a midnight online buy from Zara. I was on the hunt for a forest green suit jacket and matching skirt or dress (Theory had some options but I didn't love the skirt, and it was final sale...) when I came across this jacket which had the color I wanted, but also an interesting texture, and pretty details like the gold buttons. I am now of the mindset that I can never have too many blazers (I am becoming my mother's daughter, lol), so here we are with this one added to my collection. It's now back to full price online, but... maybe it'll go back on sale?

Casual Friday (on a Monday)

I have a bad habit of being cold everywhere I go - even in Miami where air conditioning should be a welcome relief from the heat. I recently picked up this sweater at Target - I was walking around the store freezing - it was an impulse buy. But, thankfully, it's turned out to be a pretty great sweater. It's fairly lightweight, has a loose weave/holes for some ventilation, it's oversized, and doesn't scream "winter." And for $20, it was worth it. It's now on clearance for only $16! I wore this outfit to work on a no-court day last week and was super comfortable.

Office Holiday Party

Today was my office's holiday lunch. I recently picked up this dress from the tailor and knew it was the perfect color to wear to party (it's definitely green in person instead of the slightly teal/turquoise it appears on screen). I had to go to court before the lunch so I accessorized normally and threw on a blazer. I also wore shoes I normally wouldn't wear to court - figuring that 1) it's a Friday and 2) most people are having their holiday parties today too. I got a TON of compliments on the shoes, which was nice, given that I was a bit unsure about wearing them. What did you wear/are you wearing to your office holiday party??
