SO, when my darling husband took me shopping on Veteran's Day and I came across this red blazer, I was immediately drawn to it (until my voice of reason piped up, "You don't look good in those, remember?") and before you could say, "unflattering" it was in my possession. Turns out, this one doesn't look terrible and I really love the color (and contrasting lining. I'm a sucker for striped lining.) Plus it was only twelve bucks!
Skirt: New York and Company (in need of replacement... where can I find a good one? Help me out!)
Blazer: Sam's Club (of all places!)
I love monograms but typically they're a little cheesy-looking (like when the trend hit big-time around 2004.) But I snagged this one for less than four dollars so I can't complain.
And an Insta-collage, for posterity's sake...
...the best part of posting this outfit was that Merrick commented to tell me she was also wearing polka dots and leopard... so that was definitely validating. =)
So... my close-minded prejudice toward blazers (let's be honest... toward my own "pioneer" frame) has been temporarily set aside since I'm so delighted by this miraculous little exception. I feel like I'm growing as a person! (Okay, not really... I was definitely singing along with my Disney station this morning.)
