I recently visited an amazing pop up vintage shop hosted by Edmonton’s own The Pretty Secrets. Well, I picked up this fancy velvet blazer there. I feel so preppy and, well, Yale-ish in this baby. And I really haven’t like that since I left Yale. So, really, this blazer is like a freaking time machine!

In other news, I paid a visit to the University I'll be teaching a class at in the Spring and had a lovely time meeting with faculty and scoping out my classroom - I'm really looking forward to it!

Well I definitely love that blazer and I love it more that you got it at a pop up shop! What a great color - and what's better than to remind you of Yale?! I currently don't own a velvet blazer but you and our blogger friends have influenced me to want to get one!!

I wished I could have been at the Pretty Secrets pop-up shop, it looked amazing! The blazer you picked up is gorgeous {I'm a sucker for all things velvet} and I love the necklace you paired it with :)
