well, the thunderstorms rolled through athens with a vengeance last night. trees were toppled, power lines down, and yours truly was smack dab in the middle of a photo shoot! never a dull moment weather-wise. so junior style and i headed back out early this morning for a re-do. the sun is shining as i type. so it looks as if the severe weather has passed by for the time being.
today, the outfit centered on a classic black blazer. but it has a twist. long, boyfriend style blazers are making a comeback this year, and you’ll see this style everywhere this fall. i happen to love the longer length of this classic black blazer from Lafayette 148. many of you know i am a big fan of this brand with its U.S.A. headquarters located in NYC. but if you are wanting a classic black blazer without the price tag associated with Lafayette 148, i’ve linked up a few options. fashion has many price points, so there’s no need to sacrifice your pocketbook.
a classic black blazer looks fantastic paired with pinstripe pants (old, similar here and here). for a more relaxed look tuck a lace camisole (old, similar here and here) underneath this classic black blazer and add a scarf. voila. what could have been a stuffy outfit is now sophisticated chic. perfect for date night. i know mr. style would have approved.
this polka dot scarf (old, similar here, here, and here) is a 36-inch silk scarf folded into a triangle then folded into a rectangle. the polka dots are a subtle contrast to the pinstripe pants. remember, silk scarves are an investment accessory that will last a lifetime. Gucci, Hermès, or Chanel always have modern and classic prints available. if you don’t mind shopping second-hand stores The Real Real is an online luxury consignment store that has an amazing assortment of clothes and accessories.
happy tuesday, ladies!
