If I never try anything new, you might start to yawn.
This week on the blog, I am breaking all my personal styling rules. Today, it's never button a double-breasted blazer.
This White House Black Market denim trophy jacket looked OK even buttoned because of the angles of the closure and the placement of the buttons. (I didn't keep it fastened all day.)
I am not a big fan of denim trucker style jackets because they just don't suit my body shape. Boxy jackets are difficult to carry off when you are busty. This blazer, however, is right up my style alley. The angled lines and tailored style are much more flattering for my body shape.
I paired it with a slate gray tank and white So Slimming jeans from Chico's. The bag by Zac Posen and the Balmain sunglasses are both from Saks Off 5th.
The shoes are old by Sam Edelman. Keep in mind that animal print is considered a neutral. I wore these mostly tan ones with white pants. If they were mostly black with brown, I would have treated them as a dark neutral and paired them only with darker pants to extend the line of my short legs.
The necklace is by French Kande and was a Christmas gift from Mr. Mickey.
(Well played Mr. M!)
Thank you for joining us on this journey through midlife and beyond. The second fifty years are truly the best!
