Hooded Moto Blazer by Kathrine Eldridge, Wardrobe Stylist

This hooded moto blazer came into my life almost by accident. When I saw it in the activewear section of Nordstrom, I couldn’t turn away.  It had all the details that I couldn’t resist like moto styling, a hoodie, and stretchy fabric.  Another edgy jacket? Yes please!

Hooded Moto Blazer in the Activewear Section?

I recently bought a dress online from Nordstrom and it ended up being way to big and made for a 6 foot model.  Since I am 5’2″, it was off to Nordstrom to return and find something in its place. I used several Nordstrom Rewards notes on the dress so I felt compelled to get something else right away.

There was nothing in store that I was loving after taking several passes in each section of the store. When I was about to give up, I decided to look in the activewear department for some reason. (I usually get all my workout gear from Athleta.) Lo and behold, there was this blazer tucked in with leggings and workout tops. What a find for me! It’s the perfect mix of casual and edgy in my book. I realize that athleisure is a big trend but I just don’t think I would throw this on after working out. Would you? The reason I think it was in this section is because of it’s neoprene-like stretchy material and hoodie.

If you have a Nordstrom near you, have you struggled to find items that you love? It seems that they are carrying less and less in store and everything is online. Would love to hear your thoughts on this.

Styling the Blanc Noir Hooded Moto Blazer

I decided to dress this piece up instead of throwing it on with jeans, a t-shirt, and booties. (Which is what I’ve been doing almost every week. I cannot get enough of this blazer! ) The moto details on the sleeves are faux leather but you really cannot tell so that makes it easy to wear for a night out. The heels and fringe earrings also turn up the glam factor with this outfit.  It’s all about the accessories when you want to dress something up. So what do you think of my new acquisition?
