I don’t know about you, but my instagram and blog feeds have been filled with classic gray plaid blazers lately and it kind of makes my heart sing. I have more than a couple in my collection, but this vintage Ungaro one has to be my favorite. I wore this to the Atlantic’s Washington Ideas conference last month, which was such an incredible experience. As a native of the DC metro area, it was pretty unreal to see so many icons speak in one place – Madeleine Albright, Nancy Pelosi, Jeff Flake, and Milk Bar founder Christina Tosi, just to name a few. When I started my blog over 9 years ago, I always knew I wanted to incorporate DC culture with style, so to be able to attend an event like this reminds me why I started this blog in the first place. You can watch full recordings of all of the talks from the conference here.
But back to the plaid blazer – if you don’t have one yet, there’s never been a better time to scoop one up as there are loads of affordable options to choose from (this little steal being one of them). I’ve linked a few more options below!

THE LALA LOOKBOOK
Looks like I need to get some cropped boot cut jeans to wear with my taller ankle boots 😉
And I love the plaid blazer, I don’t have a gray one but I have a sort of plaid blazer, its a larger scale one.
Sounds like a pretty cool conference too the last time I listened to cool people speaking was like 3 years ago when I saw Eva Chen & Karlie Kloss at Coach, haha
I ove this fall trend, best part it is something that you ma already have in your closet or really unexpensive to get.

I’ve been loving all the tartan blazers around too although it makes me feel bad for getting rid of a few of mine a couple years back, haha! I love the yellow piping on yours, it’s such a fun feature and yellow and grey look great together! 🙂
Hope you are having a lovely weekend! We are getting our family Santa photo done tomorrow, gotta get a move on with my Christmas cards, haha! 🙂

The grey plaid blazer is super popular right now. I can see why since it’s classic and flattering on everyone. But I love the extra detail on yours with the yellow piping. Haven’t seen one like this before!
such a stylish look, I really like how you styled the blazer.
I love the look! You accessorized so well. Your bag makes my heart sing!
