{J'adore Smythe Blazers}

My favorite time of year is here - Jeans and Blazer season!  I could not be any happier then when I can wear jeans and a blazer, it's the perfect outfit for many occasions in my eyes.  My favorite designer for blazers is Smythe, located in Toronto.  Here are some fun facts: half of the partnership for Smythe is Christie Smythe, who is Tommy {as in Sarah Richardson's Tommy} Smythe's sister.  The other half of the partnership is Andrea Lenczner who is one of Sarah Richardson's besties from high school, which is why Sarah is always spotted wearing Smythe attire.  Anyway, here are my favorite blazers from their fall collection...

They say their inspiration comes from their own lives and what they look for in a jacket to suit a real woman's lifestyle.  "We're both working mothers, so we have our social lives, our work lives, we love to travel, and we have our home lives with our kids," says Andrea.  "We try to design a jacket or coat for all those different scenarios and moods." {quote from interview in Elle Magazine}  To me, their designs seem to be very inspired by the classics, but have such a wonderful modern flare!  Don't you think?

  1. Gorgeous blazers!! Does this mean that my absolute favourite blazer that I've seen Sarah wearing (the blue and white striped with brown leather elbow patches) is made by Smythe?? Hmmmm...

  2. Boy, those Smythe's are talented aren't they? Wish I had bought one years ago before they became so sought after and worn by all of those celebs on their site. They are way out of my snack bracket now! They are adorable though. You will have to wear yours to the meet up on the 30th so we can all ooh and ahh!
