With a readership that is global, I know sharing some of my favorite local spots isn’t the most useful information for some. But with an amazing and stylish interior, not to mention outstanding coffee (and food), I wanted to give you a glimpse inside one of my favorite local coffee spots: Artifact Coffee.

Let’s talk about something else that has also recently become a big favorite of mine: this wool blazer. I have to admit to being slightly skeptical of this piece at first. It’s got the construction and structure of a blazer, but it’s a much lighter fabric and feel. Is it a blazer? Is it a sweater? I’m not quite sure, though it’s referred to as a blazer on the Reiss site.

Regardless, it’s an interesting piece that is perfect for spring in both color and weight. And surprisingly versatile. It works well with brighter colors for a more classic spring look, and because of the texture, also looks great styled with more rugged items like denim and earthier color palates.

Is this blazer a piece you’d wear?

Thanks for reading.

Stylishly Yours,
