The classic black blazer

wearing:  Levi’s original fit 501 {size 27} |  blazer almost identical |  sweater tank similar | booties (most of the similar ones are sold out, but I will link up my favorite fall 2020 options below!) | sunglasses

Ok, first… a little note to self … documented here so I don’t make the same mistake.  NEVER EVER use mousse in your hair again!  A lot happens…none of which is good.  Let’s just say it wasn’t easy to get myself to a point where I could show up for my photo shoot & then date night without  washing my hair and starting over.   This “containment” was the best I could do…still weird but much better.  Thank God for giant claw clips!!

My affinity for blazers is definitely not breaking news… yet there seems to be an exponential number of avenues to pursue pertaining to this topic.  This timeless staple is ever evolving and growing but at the same time… we can look back on infamous style icons and find a blazer similar to the one I’m wearing in these photos.   See for yourself:  Jane Birkin, Francoise Hardy, Coco Chanel.

For date night, it is so easy to dress a blazer down by throwing it over a tank top or cami (show a little décolleté & shoulders if you take it off) rather than an office appropriate blouse.  I prefer to wear blazers a bit oversized with jeans, chinos or over a midi dress but the options are plentiful!

Thrifting is my favorite way to shop for a high quality blazer, but I highly recommend Everlane’s blazer selection as well!

If you have found blazers uncomfortable in the past, try opting for a boyfriend fit.  I order 2 sizes larger in blazers always!
