Blazered Up at Barclay Prime

Barclay Prime_ Ian Michael Crumm

Since living in Philadelphia for almost 6 years (time goes fast when you’re having fun!) I’ve been to almost every Stephen Starr restaurant. Except Barclay Prime… Known for it’s amazing cuts of steak and that glistening gold door, the restaurant has been on my must-try list for too long. Thankfully the other week I had a few days between traveling in California and heading to Cabo to get dressed up for a dinner meeting. I decided to dress up a pair of dark denim jeans with a navy blazer. This is one of my favorite blazers because of the slim fit and leather collar. Since the look is overall pretty dark in hue I added some interest to the outfit with three bracelets stacked on the same wrist.
