Nautical by Nature - An Ode to the Navy Blue Blazer

There are few things as preppy as the navy blue blazer. Even Lisa Birmbach notes in her book "Treu Prep" that everyone of us, regardless of sex, age or sexual preference owns a navy blue blazer. That is certainly true in my house. At Christmas both my boys and Hubby came out dressed in nice slacks (the boys has camel colored cords and Hubby gray flannels) white shirts and black watch plaid ties. I also own one, ok several. My personal favorite is actually a Brooks Brother boys size 14. I wear it with everything! To the office, with jeans, you name it. The Brooks Brother blog, Rouge and Gentlemen has a great post on the naval history of this most prep of wardrobe staples. To read the whole article, click on the link.

Do you own a blue blazer, which one? I'm always looking for new ones!
