A Blazer for the Weekend

Casual Friday

On Saturday I attempted something I’d never done before: swimming in Lake Michigan. I mean, I’ve been in Lake Michigan before but this time I put on a wetsuit and attempted to actually swim. The water was REALLY cold (like, 52 degrees or something ridiculous) so I didn’t stay in very long. But, I have my first triathlon (thankfully in warmer water) on Sunday so I needed to try out my wetsuit.

The rest of my day was spent getting breakfast from one of our favorite food trucks, taking Chewie to the dog park, and attending the inaugural 60607 Fest where we got to try Lou Malnati’s pizza, Palace Grill mac and cheese (with bacon!), samosas from Bombay Wraps, Spiced and Infused popcorn, and drinks from Jak’s Tap and CH Distillery.  After feeling like I was going to freeze to death in the lake I wanted to wear something comfy but not look like a slob. Queue the knit blazer.

I already have a red blazer but that one is a teeny bit too big and definitely more formal. This one is more like wearing a sweatshirt. I admit, I’m debating whether or not I want to keep it (it’s only $34 for Le Tote members…and if you want to join Le Tote I have my own code now that gets you 50% off your first month! It’s ERIN25).

On one hand, I don’t need another red blazer. On the other, it was nice to be able to wear this one and not feel like I was going to work instead of hanging out in my ‘hood on a weekend.

So, thoughts? Yay or nay on adding this to my closet?

    I vote yay on adding the red blazer to your closet! It’s such a classic, staple piece and I think you’ll get tons of wear out of it.

    That 60607 fest sounds like it was a blast! Lou Malnati’s pizza – yummy. I am actually a little surprised because you and I live so close, but I’m in 60661. (Incidentally – when I lived at 31st and Michigan, I was in 60616 – and my brother-in-law lives at 60061. Talk about confusing, right?)

      That’s crazy that we’re in different zip codes! I also think it’s crazy that part of the 60607 zip code is almost all the way to museum campus. Ahh, gerrymandering at its finest.

      I hope they do the 60607 Fest again and get more vendors to come. It would be a nice alternative to the Taste of Randolph which is SO crowded now.

    I really like this blazer! Price is right—fit is perfect–and I bet you can get a lot of wear out of it.
