WhatIWore: Every day for the past week I’ve put this blazer into my online shopping cart, only to get distracted and come back to it the next morning and think about it some more. Today I finally went for it (and got 30% too!)
I’m so excited to wear this! I actually have plans to swap out the buttons for a woven leather style I have in my stash and it’s going to be cute now with a pregnant bump and later this winter once I can fit into my high waisted jeans ago.
I see everything from a vintage tweed ride style look, to a country classic with jeans and a chambray to a very 1970s Annie Hall vibe. These photos capture the inspiration I’ll use when I put it with what I already have. I can imagine it looking amazing with a brooch (a la HRH the Duchess of Cambridge!), with a wool felt hat or all cozy layered over a cream knit turtleneck. Maybe even layered under my vintage camel cape?
This look is all about heritage fabrics - think about quality wool fibers and traditional weaves. I’ve mentioned houndstooth, but any kind of plaid or tweed would work too! If you’re a bargain hunter, get yourself to the thrift shop! Otherwise, I’ve scouted out some ways to get the look below!
