For everyone who says that blazers aren’t their thing I just want you to know you can still get plenty of outfit ideas from photos of people wearing blazers. Take this outfit from Skirt The Rules, for example. I don’t have a blazer that color but I do have this cardigan! So I decided to recreate her look with pieces I’ve had in my closet for awhile.

I added the scarf because this particular top is kind of low-cut and it’s cold outside. The scarf keeps me covered up, warm, and office-appropriate. Plus it adds some nice visual interest to my outfit.

Okay, enough talk about clothes. Let’s talk about my weekend. I actually wore this outfit to the office on Wednesday because today I’m on my way to Cleveland!! Why? Because my friend Rachel is running her very first half marathon on Sunday and I’m running with her. I’m super excited for her. We’re going to have a great time. And I then I hear we’ll be going to some place called Melt for lunch. I believe they are the land of grilled cheese sandwiches? I’m definitely down with that.

    My friend Jessie (who I believe you’re friends with on FB) raves about Melt! I think that may be the only reason she runs 🙂 Have a great time, and I hope you ladies have a good race!!

      Melt was quite the experience! So many things to try there but, dang, you’d have to run a marathon every weekend if you ate there more than once a month 🙂

    If you’re that excited about grilled cheese, please tell me you’ve been to Cheesie’s in Lakeview/Evanston(?).

      I haven’t because that’s not a ‘hood I’m in usually, but I think I’ve walked past it or been near it before. I’ll have to add that to the list of places to eventually visit so I can compare 🙂

      But do you want a traditional grilled cheese or a grilled cheese sandwich with a slice of lasagna on it? Because those are just two of the many, many options…

    Melt is amazing!! Don’t expect to order anything healthy, and plan on taking food home. But perfect for after a half marathon!

    Did you say “land of grilled cheese sandwiches”?? OMG that sounds like a place I would love!
    I have a new found love for blazers and I love that you adapted this look off of a blazer outfit!

    I wear both blazers and cardigans. Sometimes jackets just don’t feel comfy enough! I love the colour purple on you and I like the light blue scarf with it. (manic monday)
