24&25: Up/Down + Love/Hate

Blazer: Jennifer Lopez for Kohl's | Tank: F21 | Skirt: Worthington | Shoes: Sam Edelman Portney | Bracelet: J.Crew | Earrings: F21

If you're like, "hold the phone, where's that blazer been all 30 for 30" the answer is hiding. In the closet. Mocking me. Because if we're getting all deep dark secrets up in here, I've got to tell you guys, I really don't like this thing at all.

I don't like that it's shiny. I don't like that it's a half size too small. I don't like that it's about an inch too short. I don't like that it's my second favorite animal print and somehow goes with nothing. Let this be a lesson unto you: even if you like to wear your blazers open, don't try to cheat tailoring by sizing down. You can take things in, YOU CAN'T MAKE THEM BIGGER. LE DUH, SAM. LE DUH.

So today's escapades in python blazerdom only half shock me. I'm shocked that the dressed up look I wore to work is one of my favorites from my whole 30 for 30, but I knew before I even left the house that the casual look I wore to class would easily be in my bottom three. I'm going to give it another whirl when I have my whole closet to work with, but I don't have a heck of a lot of confidence that it's going to change my mind. 

Cargo jacket: Nordie's | Blazer: Jennifer Lopez for Kohl's | Sweater: H&M | Jeans: Victoria's Secret | Booties: Betsey Johnson Ziah | Scarf: apt. 9 | Earrings: Target

And if this outfit is giving you deja vu... yeah.

  1. Those fringe boots are KILLER. I feel like I don't have the guts to rock them but you are SO killing it. Also seriously hearting your blog lay out. It's a reminder that I need to stop putting off my re-design! :)

    1. BUY THE SHOES. If I can wear them, you sure as heck can! I'm the most anti-fringey-person alive. Can't wait to see what you come up with for your redesign!

    1. They're for sure my favorite shoes lately. And actually they're my go-to airport shoes, because they're comfy enough to run around in and they make me a liiiittle taller which makes putting my crap in the overhead bin an inch or two easier :)

  4. Sigh. so (unfortunately) true about buying something a smidge too small. no tailoring can fix that. Even if it's the last one on the rack and on sale...
