I said on Monday I'm not really a green person and then I remembered I had this blazer hiding in the back of my closet waiting for spring to appear. I decided to stop waiting for spring and just start wearing my favorite spring colors despite the snow on the ground in the background of these pictures. Take that Mother Nature.
Once upon a time, I lived next door to Violet Boutique which for many reasons, proximity included, quickly became one of my favorite stores in DC. Let me tell you though, living next door to your favorite and affordable boutique is really a slippery slope. Factor in living on a block with cheap happy hour drinks, it becomes outright dangerous. There were far too many Friday nights after happy hour when the roommates and I went shopping in our "Violet closet" rather than our own closet or couldn't find a purse that matched so we would just go buy one next door. It was a little out of control. This blazer was definitely my favorite Violet purchase-- I had been looking for a brightly colored blazer for Aaron's law school graduation for weeks and when I saw it on the mannequin in the window, I knew it was fate. Or at least that's what I told myself when I asked to buy the last one off the mannequin.
