if you’ve been following styleatacertainage for any length of time, you know i love blazers. so it’s only a matter of time before i sneak one back into the post. this particular one is called a shrunken blazer (last seen here). and it’s knit – a perfect weight for this time of year. one of the key details i love is that the seams on the inside are finished off in a contrasting blue. small details like this are a tell-tale sign of quality and should be noted when shopping for new items. kelly green is certain to be a hit what with st. patrick’s day only a week away. it’s perfectly traditional paired with blue. but don’t forget about unexpected color combo’s like purple, lime green, black or pink. since i’ve gone the traditional route today with my color scheme my accessories follow suit. an iconic handbag, leopard flats and leopard belt finish off this ootd that’s modern and preppy.
