October in Boston // Navy blazer + vintage jeans

madewell petite jeans fall outfit

The most picturesque few weeks in Boston are officially here and the weather has been so good to us, calling for just a light jacket or thick sweater most days! Inspired by Nori’s class which goes on nature walks and outdoor picnics regularly, I went leaf peeping around the neighborhood and caught this gorgeous scene at the park. My outfit follows one of my favorite smart casual formulas when I want to feel put together with minimal effort, and would work with flats or sneakers as well! You can also see this outfit in my IG Reel.

Wool Blazer

I first shared this navy blazer this spring and paired it with a button up and nude pumps for another timeless outfit combo. I also bought the same blazer in camel a while back and it’s a bit more of a statement piece than my other blazers, due to the gold buttons. When compared to the J.Crew Regent blazer which I’ve also shown regularly, the Banana Republic captain blazer is a little longer in length and more contoured and fitted at the waist, with a more defined lapel.

Slim Jeans

I recently picked up these Madewell vintage wash jeans and reviewed them in this post. For a similar look and lower price points, these Levi’s jeans remain favorites from two years back! Note the Levi’s are button fly and Madewell is zipper fly and runs a little bigger at the waist, in comparison. I had to cut the hems on both brands for my preferred length.

Cap Toe Pumps

I get questions about these every time I wear them and we’re unfortunately sold out of many sizes at the moment! I made these as an everyday low pump that can be paired with either dressier office or more laid back denim looks.

Taupe Layering Top

The exact top I’m wearing is an old Uniqlo find, but J.Crew Factory has a similar color turtleneck. It’s surprisingly been one of my most reached for layering tops over the years because the color works with warm as well as cool brown tones, and pretty much ALL other neutrals like cream, grey, navy, or black!

    You’ve converted me from skinnies to straight leg denim. It’s so refreshing. The captain blazer from BR has a tailored aspect to it that I didn’t know I loved until I bought it. I’ve been wearing it nonstop since. It’s one of the best finds, I’ve gotten from one of your posts. Now I want all my blazers to have a defined waist. It’s a problem lol. Love this time of the year in Boston. It’s sooo beautiful and picturesque! Thank you for sharing this chic but still comfy look!

    I love your bag and am considering buying! But I’d like to know if you find it is harder to walk with on your arm constantly with the shorter handles and it being a tote size vs. longer handles and being able to wear on your shoulders? Regardless, it’s super cute and I love your whole look!

      It would be hard to put this one over your shoulder, it’s definitely an arm tote, but I believe they have another style with longer handles that fit over the shoulder!

    Hi there. I’m one of the many people that have asked about a restock of the pumps on EP. Any ETA on a restock?

      Hi Althea, thank you so much for your interest and for being so patient with us! Sadly, we’re unable to bring back the sold out sizes at this time and don’t have an estimated restock date.
