I mentioned that I was raised by New Englanders right? Well I was, one hailing from CT and the other from Rhode Island. Don’t get me wrong, New England is beautiful and it’s an amazing place to live, however I was lucky enough to grow up in the beautiful sassy state of New Jersey and I couldn’t be more proud of that. No, I don’t frequent Seaside nor do I have a bump it, in fact my adolescent summers were not typical for a Jersey Native. I grew up frequenting the CT shoreline, and while I envied my friends who were scanning the boardwalk, looking back, I wouldn’t trade my summers in CT for anything. I think about how much of an impact New England had on my style then, and laugh now at how much it has changed, but the timelessness and class that is New England will always remain in wardrobe selections.
This is yet another ode to my New England self, the one who wore Nantucket reds and could never find an excuse not to wear a navy blazer. This grey wool schoolboy blazer is an old J.Crew treasure of mine (I included a similar style above!) and I decided to pull out my winter whites before spring hits. I topped it off with a simple statement piece, purchased from a local favorite— Ladyfingers. I don’t think you can go wrong with a white and grey combo, it’s classic and clean.
