fashion : blazers

Hi y'all! I'm not gonna lie... it's really hard for me to not title this post something like "blaze of glory" or "blazin'" or any other number of punny lines. What can I say? There's a lame comedian living inside me that wants to come out! ;) 

Okay, most of the time, I'm a cardigan fanatic! Seriously! I feel my most comfortable dressed in layers and there's just nothing like the outfit I wore yesterday : skinny jeans, loafers, comfy t-shirt, and over-sized cardigan. Those are the outfits that I feel the most... me. 

But this fall, there's a new trend that's hitting stores everywhere and, well, it's stricken my fancy. (Which, by the way, I don't understand that saying, but oh well.) That trend is blazers. Now, when I was growing up, I only saw blazers worn with trousers. But somewhere along the way, I started seeing blazers paired with jeans on men and yow-zah, I liked it! Then I started noticing blazers on women and I wanted it! Whoever decided this was appropriate wear, I applaud you. It's like wearing a cardigan, but more of the business end of casual business. I love the versatility. You can wear them with all sorts of washes on jeans, you can dress them up, dress them down, dress them anyway you want. You can wear the sleeves down all business-y, or you can Miami Vice those sleeves and roll 'em up. I'm a fan. So... this fall, I'm on the prowl for the perfect blazer. And these are some that I'm particularly eyeing :

Yep, I'm definitely crushing on blazers! In a big way! And the other day I was in Target and it took all I had to not go nuts. But, the hubby and I are watching our budget this month soo....... no blazers for me. Yet. 

What about you? Are you crushing on anything particular today? And what outfit do you wear that makes you feel the most you?

  2. I'm so glad there's no big shoulders in these blazers. I still have flashback nightmares of the blazers back in the 80's. lol

  3. Well, they say that every thing comes back around and such is the case with the blazer. I loved them the first go around and I'll love them this time. Happy weekend!

  4. I just bought a blazer at J.Crew - I love but feel soooo guilty about spending the money. Ugh, I gotta take it back.

  5. I don't want to be redundant but this was my wear back in the 60's-70's and 80's. Blazers with jeans - in every fabric - including velvet. My fav was a burgandy blazer. Still up in the attic. LOL
