Happy Friday! In honor of surviving multiple tech issues here at Dressed for My Day this week, I’m throwing on my red corduroy blazer and getting outta town! No, really James and I are joining couples from our church on a retreat in Indiana this weekend. But, sure enough, if you see me I’ll be sporting this blazing red jacket.
When I first saw this red corduroy blazer on the Loft website, I drooled a little. Hahaha! But I was still surprised at how well this long jacket fits and feels. I did end up sizing down to a 6, by the way, and the fit is still generous.
You can bet I’ll be styling this red corduroy blazer multiple ways in the months to come. It’s so versatile, really! But I thought I’d start with the basics. Plus, you really can’t beat how contemporary and youthful the blazer looks with my favorite white t-shirt and these slightly distressed jeans.
Both the red blazer and these comfy skinny jeans (TTS) are marked down right now. PLUS Loft is offering an additional 40% off with code FALLFEST just through Saturday. But if you’re interested in this corduroy blazer, I wouldn’t wait long. I fully expect it to disappear during this sale.
Because I kept everything else in this outfit simple, I was able to slip into my western inspired tan and black snakeskin booties. These oh-so-comfy booties are also marked down, but few sizes are available. However, I can also highly recommend the suede version of these booties. I bought them in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and had the hardest time returning them. They’re available in cognac and taupe and are just as sharp as my snakeskin version, and probably even more versatile.
I can’t tell you how much I’m enjoying my Tory Burch leather hobo. The leather is so supple and rich, and I love the unlined interior and the simple lines of this bag. Of course, I better enjoy it for the pretty penny I paid. I did buy mine when it was marked down considerably, however. Right now this Tory Burch tote is marked down a little. But if you like the vibe of my hobo, you also might want to consider this more economical option.
Because it works for my body type, I did add a black leather belt and tucked my shirt in the front.
Maybe you’re tired of seeing me in jeans and t-shirts. But honestly, we’re living in a time when one of the easiest ways to look chic and contemporary is simply to top this easy one-two punch with a trending topper. Have you tried it? I’d love to hear your take on this easy style.
Don’t forget, so much of this outfit is marked down. And Loft is even offering additional reductions with code FALLFEST, but just through Saturday. Let me know if you have any questions about fit.

Blessed for My Day
Is your soul a little restless today? Maybe a dear family member is struggling and you don’t know how to help. Or maybe a health concern has you feeling anxious about the coming days. Maybe finances are a little iffy or a relationship has hit rough waters. When something is off in our lives, our souls can feel stirred up, restless.
Let’s remember that even in the midst of our uncertainty, God is steadfast and sure. He is working. He can be trusted. Let’s resist the inclination to fix things ourselves, to solve our dilemmas with speedy solutions or hasty words. Let’s give Him time to work. We can take heart in the fact that while He is working we are doing exactly what we are supposed to be doing: waiting with full confidence that He will answer.
For God alone my soul waits in silence; from him comes my salvation. ~ Psalm 62:1
