Patch It Up

Top: H&M  |  Blazer: H&M  |  Jeans: NY&Co.  |  Wedges: Target

When I first bought this blazer I actually debated about whether or not to keep it, but over the last year I've come to love it.  It's kind of hard not to fall in love with it when 1) it's made of sweatshirt-like material, 2) it has striped lining! and 3) it has elbow patches!!  It kind of makes me want to sew elbow patches onto other blazers.  And maybe a sweatshirt.  And maybe even a striped long sleeved tee.  Because, friends, elbow patches = win.

  2. Love this blazer! And the rest of the outfit makes it so chic - the best way to do up elbow patches. Also I am intrigued by this elbow patches on a striped shirt idea....

  5. I love elbow patches! I just bought a gray cardigan from XXI that has brown elbow patches. I like to think of it as "grandpa chic" :) I just found your blog through Ask The Duplex and I love your style! I've added you to my google reader!

  6. I've been on the hunt for a sweater jacket type coat, and I love yours!  It has a really wonderful shape, and it really flatters you!  I love the professorial look, so I definitely know what you mean about the patches.  Elbow patches FTW!

  15. Haha, maybe you don't need THAT many elbow patches, but I do agree that they are super fun. I remember seeing this blazer, I think. I'm getting excited for fall weather so I can bust out my favorite clothes.

  16. I love the blazer with the top underneath! That makes such a beautiful neckline. I love elbow patches. Do you think it would be weird if I put knee patches on things too? Is that taking it too far?

  17. Bahaha.  I was gonna start going into knee patches too, but I refrained!

  18. I would have never known that it was sweater material.  It looks pretty comfy!  And I don't know which I like better, the elbow patches or the lining!  Also, the light blue is gorgeous with the gray.

  24. I am on the lookout for a cute elbow-patches Blazer and I hope to find the perfect one. I have once (a couple years ago) seen a super cute one from H&M - too bad I didn't purchase it. I hope to find one either from H&M, Mango or Zara, here in Europe. If not, I will have to have one taylored - no joke. With that said, you look so eclectic, sharp & sophisticate in this outfit. Love the light baby blue top & handbag.
