An afternoon in vintage blazers

Blazer: Vintage
Leather Skinny Pants: South Moon Under

I seriously put this outfit together in 10 minutes or less and I call it 'beautiful disaster'! It consisted of grabbing all my current winter & spring favorite items and throwing them into a pile ... this is what you get as a result.  Gotta give Katya credit for making sure I wore comfy shoes that day since we had a long afternoon of walking. Before her input, this outfit was paired up with my 5 inch booties. Thank you BFF. I would probably still be limping if it weren't for your adivice! ha


Blazer:  Vintage DKNY (gifted by my mom)
Boyfriend jeans:  Madewell
Shoes:  Steve Madden
Bag:  Vintage Coach
Belt:  Forever21
Necklace:  H&M
Sunnies:  RayBan
This weekend I decided to dress down a bit and give myself a break from heels.  This was probably a good decision since NYFW is around the corner and we all know the beating our feet take during those insane few days - ouch!  So anyway, this look is my perfect definition of a low key outfit.  I love how comfortable these Madewell boyfriends jeans are, but they can look a bit too dressed down at times so I paired them up with my mom's vintage DKNY blazer to give it a more chic feel.  Throw in a few fun accessories and there you have it.  Cool & Comfy!
Beer tasting!
Our first time tasting straight from a beer tank
We can't even describe how good these bacon-caramel doughnuts are! Seriously life changing :) 
Yummy sliders from Madfox Brewing Company

That neon necklace in the back screams #NYFW!! You like? get it HERE!

Here is a little recap of our Saturday afternoon adventures.  Our day started with a special tasting at Mad Fox Brewing Company in Falls Church where we enjoyed some delicious lunch items, a full beer tasting, and the unforgettable bacon-caramel donuts (I know sounds weird, but they were truly out of this world good). If you're a DMV local, this place is definitely a must try.  As a bonus, we even had a private brewery tour by the brewer himself, Bill Madden.  It was fun to learn how beer is actually made and taste a few straight from a beer tank - too cool!  Later we attended a trunk show of some of the best accessories in town by Shop Jeen.  We were super impressed with the selection and can't wait to shop for our favorite items.  Hope all of you had a fabulous weekend!

Why are those two colors the best discovered color-combo ever?! I am obsessed with red/hot pink. Loving both of these outfits! Perfect for the great weather we had this weekend.

Those mini-burgers look insane. I will definitely be making my bf take me there to try! :)

Thanks for sharing!
