Livin' my life like it's golden...

Blazer:  Doncaster, vintage & thrifted, Black top: No clue, Skinny Jeans:  TJ Maxx, Boots:  Catalog order from about 10 years ago.

Jentine, at My Edit, is such a great "thrifty" blogger!  She recently did a post about thrifting blazers.   I've been fortunate to have thrifted quite a few really great ones!  This one is 100% woven silk.  I replaced the dated buttons with wooden ones.  Amazing what a difference buttons can make!

Honestly, this is just a great "I have no clue what to wear" uniform.  Skinny jeans tucked into boots and a statement blazer.  A girl could do this a hundred times and look FABULOUS every one of them!

Since, I'm feeling so visible, be sure to check out the other "visible" lovelies at Patti's blog, Not Dead Yet Style.  Be sure to post your very visible self on her blog!



  1. Hey beautiful, love that silk blazer and tall boots! It is indeed a great "uniform" for Fall/Winter. Thanks so much for linking up to Visible Monday : >

  2. You look great, Serene! I love this look and I think we are wearing the same color of jacket for Visible Monday...great minds think alike!!! Your hair looks gorgeous!

  3. This is one look I've been meaning to wear, I'm very curious about skinny jeans, I wear skirts about 99% of the time but I'm looking forward to buying a pair of skinnies to wear with boots and a blazer! =D
    By the way thank you so much for your kind comments Serene, you're amazing. =)

  4. Classic, beautiful and edgy! Way to go girl! Might pull something like this together for work tomorrow!

  5. Fabulous golden girl, my dear Serene.
    Happy Christmas to you and your loved ones.

  6. Strong and classic look, Serene! It's really great. Love the blazer, the length and the color!

  7. What a good look for you. The color is gorgeous.

  8. Great outfit! I actually have a similar outfit to be posted this week except with a red jacket. Great minds!
    Merry Christmas to you and your family!

  9. I've been away so long, but I love your new header! And, am wondering if you have new digs? Lots of light. I have to agree that Jentine is an expert on thrifting...will have to check out her advice on blazers.

  10. Not only are you super chic but you also have a stunning home! Wow!
