Blazer Boss

Blazers are a great staple piece that everyone should have. There are a few styles: straight- cut, boyfriend, single-breasted, slim fit, linen and the list goes on. But there’s a style for everyone.
Here, I belted mine so I can accentuate my waist, which is the smallest part on my body.
Blazers are a HUGE part of my wardrobe. I have several that I wear in many ways.
How do you feel about blazers? Do you own any?

Wardrobe Staple

In my post HERE, I wrote about the wonders of when I found the right coat. And this coat is the same exact one, except it’s in a classic camel color. Though it’s traditional, I will wear it so much.
I believe everyone should have a go-to camel coat. It’s a staple and it goes well with everything.

The Perfect Coat

It took me forever to find the perfect coat and when I did I purchased it in this berry-burgundy shade and in the classic camel color. I cannot express how frustrating it was to find something of .. 1. the perfect length, 2. the sleeves didn’t have to be tailored too much, and
3. the coat wouldn’t drown me.

The coat measures 33″ in length on me and the sleeves were 32″ so I took it in 2 3/4″. Now it’s perfectly tailored and I will wear it for seasons to come!

Did you have trouble finding that ONE perfect piece? And if you did find it, what happened? I would love to hear your story so comment below. 🙂

Gemini Link – Thrifted

I love a good thrift find .. like this Tory Burch Gemini Bag for six whole dollars! I went in to find something else that I would use once but ended up with this purchase instead. I didn’t grow up a thrift shopper at all (not that I was against it) but I didn’t find interest in it until I was in my early 20’s.
And now I find good treasures that used to have a story behind them.
How do you feel about thrift shopping? And have you found a good treasure from it?

Satin Skirt Trend

I’m currently obsessing over this satin skirt trend. It’s so comfortable (a little thin for Winter Wear) and can be dressed up or down. I paired it with a wool sweater and love it for the office!

If you’re thinking of trying a trend this season, you should go with this one. You won’t think twice.

Moto Jacket Casual

If you don’t already know, I am obsessed with Zara! I only discovered them a little over a year ago and let me just say … I don’t know why this brand wasn’t discovered sooner.
I also love anything in a blush shade so when I came across this piece, I purchased it without hesitation! And second, I got it from the girl’s section so it was half the price of what a woman’s coat would normally cost.

I suppose there are perks to being extra petite. You sometimes find great pieces at great prices.
