What I Wore: Blazers, J.Crew & Magic Jeans

Gee wiz this blazer makes me feel powerful so I’m going to put my hands on my hips but I’m Alysse so I can’t be too serious so here is a huge smile!

So in case you didn’t know I have officially transitioned my mind and my closet to Fall! Besides the beauty of the leaves falling and the crispness of the morning air, my favorite thing about Fall is the various outfit options that are now available!

When I woke up Monday morning and saw that the current temperature was 48 degrees I knew today was the day. Today was the day I would showcase the J.Crew blazer I purchased 3 months back! This blazer retails at about $178 but I got it for a STEAL at the Lynchburg J.Crew “Warehouse” store for a whopping $60!!

During the same shopping trip, I purchased a pair of jeans (for $30!) that fit me like a glove. You might have heard me refer to them as my “magic  pants.” I’m not exactly sure how this store can sell seemingly perfect items for so cheap when the same items are still selling full price
on the website….but I’m not complaining! To make the J.Crew inspired outfit complete I went with one of my go-to striped tops. All J.Crew Errrrything!

The next day I got to wear another new outfit! Crazy how that works huh?Last weekend, one of my friends won a contest at a store here in town and we got to go in after hours and shop with an additional discount. I purchased this lovely grey dress which is just on the border of being outside my comfort zone but at the same time is very typical of my normal outfit choices(simple cotton, usually striped). Not pictured is the rather large “V” cut in the back of the dress. That, along with the fairly short ( in my opinion) length of the dress, and the lack of shape, I felt somewhat exposed. I have to admit though, I really enjoyed pushing my own style boundaries a little bit. 

It’s been a solid two days of style here in Lysse’s life. I’m not exactly sure what I’m wearing the rest of the week, but I think at least one pair of my cowboy boots deserve to make an appearance!

P.S Something slightly related, last week I ordered 4 shirts from Old Navy, for only $42! The sale ends the 19th, so check it out ASAP!
