No Stress Dress: Ann Taylor Tweed Fringe Jacket 3 Ways, 11.21.15.

I’ve been really liking Ann Taylor’s line of tweed jackets this season– the quality is quite good for the sale price, and they’re a nice way to look polished while keeping warm in the office.

The jacket is available in regular and petite sizes, and (as of this post) it’s currently 40% off. I found the Petite 00 to run true to size.

Midnight Tweed in the Office, 10.07.15.

I hit a lull in my work schedule late last week and finally had a chance to take an extended weekend off, just in time to deal with a leaky roof courtesy of Joaquin! So much for rest and relaxation… darn tropical storms. At any rate, here’s what I wore on my day back in the office.

J. Crew tweed dress, wool blazer (old, similar). // J. Crew crystal necklaces layered together (old school, similar here, here, and here). // Ann Taylor navy belt (similar). // Ann Taylor heels.

Here’s what this outfit looks like sans blazer…
