Blazer: Thrifted (Studio I) — Tank Top: Goodwill — Skirt: Goodwill (George Stretch) — Shoes: Goodwill (Aerosoles) — Bangle: Thrifted — Necklace: Goodwill
This? Is how I wish my new thrifted blazer fit. Up top you can see how it actually fits, at least when I have it open. Pretty comfy, and I love the color, but I’m not sure how I feel about how it hangs, and I have to wear it open if I want any of the under-garment color to show. Quite a conundrum. Plus, I feel like the sleeves are kind of a weird length; I may try and shorten them a bit. What do y’all think?
I have a hard time figuring out sizes of tops and blazers, especially since my automatic tendency is to have everything quite fitted and I feel somewhat awkward even in intentionally looser garments. Maybe it looks okay loose and I’m feeling weird over nothing? (I may have to invest in fashion tape to keep it open-but-not-flapping-in-the-breeze, though.)
If yesterday’s outfit post was ice-cream-themed, I think today’s theme is citrus: lemon, tangerine, and grapefruit! I have been kind of obsessing over warmer colors lately, and once I brought the blazer home (minus the shoulder pads) this felt like a natural combination. I think all the elements here might be going on my 30 for 30 list–we’ll see about the yellow skirt–but I just couldn’t sit on this outfit idea for that long.
It had to be seen, and I was powerless to refuse. You know how it is when clothing strong-arms you into doing its bidding, right?
