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!
