Standard Errand Uniform

Sweater + Jeans + A Blazer has become my standard errand running outfit for the last few months.

This outfit I wear to do the grocery shopping and run most of my errands.  Though the type of shoes, sweater, and fit of the blazer may change from time to time, essentially the look is the same.  And yes I do wear heels almost always, even to the grocery store (Why?? because I am so short I can barley reach the top shelf without them.)

Blazer:  no label Similar Here.  Sweater: Bottega Veneta.  Jeans: BCBG.  Shoes: Manolo.

I purchased this blazer at a vintage shop years ago. It was part of a suit. The shop had several gorgeous suits that belonged to an elderly woman who had just passed. She was exactly my size, and I was desperately in need of professional and expensive looking clothes for a job I just started at that time. These finds were meant to be! Unfortunately since then I’ve somehow lost the matching pants along with the other suits I purchased. This blazer is the remaining memory of that time. Do you have pieces that bring back memories? Do like vintage clothing?

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful week ahead!

  1. What a lovely outfit! And your blazer is beautiful! I love vintage clothing, I just tend to have trouble finding the right size for me (and I can't sew to save my life). Also, your hair is just gorgeous, Lili! You totally look like a hair model in this post!

    I hope you have a wonderful, week!

    1. I have trouble finding the right size too and was surprised that these suits fit. And I think my hair looks better in some photos than in others. It's really a bit frizzy most times. Thank you Lindsey :)

  3. You look so chic for errands! I wish I could tolerate heels all the time! I am lucky if I wear them twice a week!

    1. I've been wearing them all the time forever, though I'm sure I'm doing damage that I'll probably feel in a few years. Thank you Laura :)

  6. Am sure the other pieces are in your closet. You don't look short but don't worry because we suffer the same misery at the grocery store. You look chic in your errand running outfit unlike some women who will just wear a shirt and sweat pants.
    Ps, I just read your about the blog and I now understand why you name your blog fashion salt.

  8. That coat is stunning and that's a great purchase, Lili! And I know what you mean about wearing heels a lot, I was the same in the past. At 5ft4', I know the pain of unable to reach the top shelf. LOL!

    1. Before the internet it was so easy to find really nice vintage things. Now everything is resold online for higher prices and it sells out faster. So it is much more difficult these days. Thank you Anne :)

  34. What a nice blazer! Love its cut. I like the way you styled your pieces. I read that you are short, so the pointy shoes work great for you, because they elongate your legs and you look taller. Have a nice day!

    Vanessa, xo!

  35. I do like your outfit! There is something so effortlessly chic about the pairing of heels with jeans, I just love it...and a nice blazer completes every outfit. I must say that your everyday uniform (as you say) is pretty fabulous. I know how you feel about heels, I used to wear them all the time but I had a foot problem so now I wear them only from time to time. Still, I don't know why people get suprised about wearing heels on daily basis. Heels make us feel more feminine...at least that is the case with me. I've couldn't help noticing that without heels I always walk like a guy ( I don't know why, but heels do wonders for my poisture:))

    p.s. Thank you very much for your sweet comment. It really means a lot. Yes, blogging is a lot of work, but things are worth the effort, right?:)

    1. Thank you Ivana. Blogging is a lot of work, but it is worth the effort as long as you enjoy it. My husband doesn't agree, and is waiting for me to stop and spend more time off the computer, haha. And as for my heels I'm sure I will have bad feet from wearing them one day (as everyone keeps telling me) but they do make me feel prettier and look a lot taller :)

  43. I think you can't go wrong with a good combo of jeans, a blazer and a sweater. This outfit would also look really good with a nice coat as well :)

  47. A great casual look here and one I would opt for though I find myself tending to wear leggings over jeans these days with longer tops and boots.
