As mentioned in our last blog post, we had the pleasure of spending the weekend in New Orleans last my birthday, and it was ideal in more ways than one.

We stayed at the beautiful Ace Hotel and the weather was a flawless, gloomy 61 degrees which allowed me to have some fun with layers. I finally busted out this new un-lined Borrelli windowpane blazer and combined it with a bold striped shirt and a cardigan I've owned for eight years (I know!).

Dressed down with jeans and some (very) comfortable boots, this is the perfect outfit for just about any situation that requires running around while looking like you give a damn.

Jacket: Luigi Borrelli (just like this one) | Sweater: Express (similar) | Shirt: H&M | Jeans: H&M | Boots: Johnston & Murphy | Pocket Square: Suitsupply (also dig this one) | Watch: Shinola | Glasses: Tom Ford
