Style Remix: Leather Sleeve Blazer

 Hello and happy Tax Day Monday - can you believe that April is half over already?  Hopefully you already filed your taxes and are planning how to spend your return.  =)  Today's outfit is a casual one, featuring this fabulous Zara charcoal blazer with leather sleeves.  I am a huge fan of the leather sleeve trend, and just love the extra edge they give to this simple one-button blazer as well as little details like the leather collar and leather trimmed pockets!

I previously featured this blazer back in January with a dressy winter look for a night out on the town in Blazer with Leather Sleeves.  This time, I added a grid pattern sweater, black pointed-toe pumps, and vintage Levi 501's.  These Levis are actually my dad's, if you can believe it.  A few years ago, he was cleaning out drawers and uncovered an old pair of 501's from high school and college years.  I can't believe he kept them so long!  Since they fit me, I decided to keep them and am still trying to decide if I want to take sandpaper to them for a more weathered look.
