A Really Good Blazer

Hi guys! If you didn’t catch it on Instagram yet, yes, I cut my hair again. I find myself on a constant cycle of letting it grow out (and by grow out, I mean chin length, lol) and then taking it back to what I refer to as ‘short‘. I get bored easily and my hair grows quickly, so I know it’ll always be back :) I have very thick hair which makes it a little more difficult to maintain and I can only grow it out so long until I reach the point where I’m done. And then it goes. So for now, I’ll be having some fun again with my shaggy pixie!

I picked up this blazer at the end of last week and found myself wearing it both Saturday and Sunday. Blazers seem to be having such a moment (are they ever not tho?) and when I saw it in this pink I crossed my fingers that the fit would be good. It exceeded my expectations in every way and it the perfect weight to be able to layer under or over. Sleeve length is where I tend to have issues, but there’s plenty of length here without requiring me to size up. In Loft, I’m typically between a 0-2 and went with the 0 here, so I’d say it runs slightly on the larger side. At the moment, you can catch it for 40% off!

I went with a monochromatic look for the base of this outfit. You could go with light, medium or dark denim based on what you had in your closet. Any would work as long as you find colors that are fairly similar. Just as I share all too often about the importance of a good chambray shirt, I think having one with a bit of flair is almost as important. I’ve had mine in my closet for a few years, but there are always similar options available, I’m sharing some below.
