shopping on a budget boyfriend blazer

the shopping on a budget series continues today, featuring a boyfriend blazer. this unstructured blazer with ruched sleeves is perfect for spring and summer temps with its bigger, wider, longer silhouette. and the temps in Georgia have been soaring past the eighty-degree mark all week long! my mini-vacay was timed perfectly. what’s better than lounging by the pool with the sun shining overhead? or dining al fresco with a view of Lake Oconee? a little rest and relaxation were just what this girl needed.

it’s week two of my master bathroom renovation. oscar and ollie are a bit stressed with all of the workers coming in and out. actually, oscar just gets in the way of the contractors as he never met a human he didn’t like. doesn’t everyone want to give him oodles of love and attention? on the other hand, ollie has made herself scarce, only peeking her head out when the noise has dissipated. but plumbing is in place, as is electricity. the electrical rough-in continues today, then a week’s worth of sheetrock. after that, it’s tile for another full week. the good stuff doesn’t happen until the end of the month, with the project scheduled to complete on May 12th. can’t wait!

    Using the pin on your pocket is a great idea! Something to do with all that old jewelry.

    Beth, do you find wedge shoes more comfortable after your knee replacement, asking because i broke my ankle in the late summer and still find heels a bit painful and wondered if a wedge would be a better option as the base of the shoe on the ground is more substantial.

    • wedge shoes, espadrilles, and block heels offer more support and comfort for your feet as opposed to shoes with slender heels.
      many women with feet issues can get by with any of those options while still getting the height of a heel. can’t hurt to try.

    I do like blazers but I have a large bust with a small frame and so hard to get the right fit at the shoulders. Any ideas?

    • i think an unconstructed blazer with a loose fit, no buttons or buttonholes should work. also, sweater blazers have a nice
      loose fit too.

    I’ve seen on WM and been considering. Seeing on you, had to link over and order immediately – Ivory AND Pink Lemonade. Thanks again for the help! Gorgeous blouse. LOVE a brooch – always have. P.S. Particularly delighted that the fabric won’t be wrinkly and that the sleeves are so cute and conveniently “pushed up” for you.
