Brick and Burberry.

OK, so the title of today's post refers to the two most visible items I am wearing today: my Blazer (Brick) and my Plaid Blanket Scarf (Burberry). These items also happen to be Brand-New and Gifted to me (Lucky me - I know).
Now I don't own the Infamous Blanket Scarf that almost every single blogger has. It is pretty yes, but I don't have it. However, when I was gifted this Gorgeous Orange Plaid Burberry Scarf from a cousin I was in Fashion Heaven. I am not sure if it is the real thing or not, but it is a soft wool-blend material, in a bright happy orange, warm+cozy and I love it, whether it is real or faux Burberry. On  the other hand, my brother purchased this Blazer for me as a gift, since I started a new, full-time job. He also purchased a couple of other pieces for me and I must say he has great taste. This Brick/Rust Blazer with the Black Faux Leather Lapel is a Statement Piece for sure. And the Brick Color compliments the Bright Orange quite well, I think. I kept the rest of the Outfit simple, with a Mellow Yellow Tee underneath, my Cropped Black Dressy Pants & Brown Wedge Oxfords. What do you think? Have you jumped on the Blanket Scarf Bandwagon yet?
Rust/Brick Open-front Blazer w/ Black Faux Leather Lapel: H&M (Gifted from my Brother) (New) (similar, love this), (gorgeous mocha, velvet option, the Schoolboy style by J.Crew), (very similar in Gray Tweed & Faux Black Leather by Target, best deal, love this).
Mellow Yellow, Short-Sleeve, Scoop-neck, Cotton Tee w/ Little Puffy Sleeves: The Limited (similar V-neck), (similar graphic tee by Reebok, love this), (similar w/ ruching).
Black, Dressy, Cropped Pants w/ Buckle Tab on the waist: The Limited (very similar by Tahari, best deal, love these), (similar by Gap, on sale, love these), (gorgeous option by Theory, splurge).

Vivian's Outfit:
Baby Pink, Velvet, Sleeveless Dress w/ Ruffled Hem: Gifted.
Pink, Long-Sleeve, Cotton, Mock-neck Tee: A Local Children's Boutique.
White Knit Tights w/ Pink+Gray Argyle Print: Wal Mart.

Of course this Outfit is perfect to link up with Andi + Danielle for Blazer Week; Erin + Laura for Trend Spin which today's theme is Plaid, Stripes and Checks; and last but not least Jessica + co. for Maid for Plaid.
Also linking up with Amber, Angela, J., Laura, Lauren, Lindsey, Paige, Rachel, Shanna and Zaz.

There will be more Blazers (and perhaps more Plaid also), more Scarves and more Pantone this week, by me. Stay tuned and as always Thank You for reading!
