Blazer of Glory

I love blazers. I own several (including six corduroy blazers). I’m participating in the 30 for 30 challenge and I made sure to include a couple of blazers in the mix. I plan to wear them with skirts, jeans, dress pants, you name it. My Joe’s Jeans tan corduroy blazer will make an appearance soon, I promise. But for the Everybody, Everywear Blazer Challenge, I decided to go with my favorite thrifted Laundry by Shelli Segal blazer. It has a hot pink lining; I made it one-of-a-kind by adding a bit of creative sewing machine stitching at the bottom seams. I like the mix of masculine and feminine that a blazer brings to an outfit. I feel instantly pulled together when I throw a blazer over a tank top and jeans. Heels and jewelry keep the outfit from getting too boyish.

    I want to see some of that pink lining!
