DRESSY BLAZER

Blazers get a boring reputation. They tend to get categorized as work attire or too mature, but I’m a big a fan of them.  I’m really excited about this Glen Plaid/Checked one. I’ve been dying to pull it out, but it hasn’t been cool enough to wear, so I pulled it out this past weekend for dinner. I’ve been on the hunt for a blazer like this after seeing Saint Laurent’s Fall Campaign.

SaintLaurent

I fell in love with the boxy structure, but the tweed Saint Laurent isn’t in my price range, so I resorted to the GoodWill. At the end of the summer, I randomly stopped by my local Goodwill and found the one I’m wearing. It was a little too big, but too good to pass up, so I took it to my favorite Tailor and had it shortened and taken in – the best $30 I’ve spent (Total price of Goodwill blazer + tailor cost).  I can’t wait to wear it with my favorite denim, but for now, I paired it with a white long-sleeved dress (c/o of 9thandElm). It was a perfect jacket for a night out and I love the way it looks paired with the white dress and how chic the long sleeves look peeking out. I wore my FAVORITE Stuart Weitzman sandals, Wildfox Winona Sunnies, and a vintage clutch, that I acquired from my Mom’s closet. Funny thing is Barbie, yes the doll, has the same one – I love how she rocked it in Paris. I hope I’ve inspired you to reconsider rocking a blazer or maybe wearing one for a night out. If my #ootd isn’t enough to convince you, two of my favorite bloggers are on the same page about rocking them: Karla’s Closet + ManRepeller.
