I love this blazer. I got it at Loft recently during a weekend shopping trip and couldn’t wait to wear it to work! I love that it doesn’t have a button like most blazers but still hangs nicely over the bust area.
I got it as part of my February clothing budget and although it was more than I like to spend on a single item, it is a very nice quality blazer that is built to last. I foresee it being a closet staple and I’m hoping to get a ton of use out of it.
If I were to do a 30 for 30 challenge (and I hope to soon!), this tuxedo tweed blazer would definitely make the cut. It is super versatile and can be dressed up with a skirt or over a dress or dressed down with jeans (Heather from Smart and Saavy has some good ideas on a more casual look).
And in case you didn’t know what 30 for 30 is…
Originally developed by Kendi Everyday, a 30 for 30 challenge is when you select 30 articles of clothing/accessories, and remix them to create thirty outfits.
Usually, I have trouble finding blazers that fit well. I’ve got broad shoulders and a larger bust so it’s hard to find one that is a perfect fit without it being too long or too snug in certain spots. Luckily for me, this blazer fit nicely as the shoulder seam matches up with my actual shoulder, and the sleeves are a great 3/4 length. I can even roll up the sleeves and expose the lining underneath, which is a beautiful coral color. Side note: I LOVE when blazers have a cool lining underneath! It’s like a little bonus that can add a little extra somethin somethin to your outfit. But I digress… :-)
Speaking of why fit matters, Audrey from Putting Me Together did a great post on how to find the proper fit for your body…super helpful!

Wish I would have worn my vintage ring with this outfit, but I was running late. Whoops. There’s always next time!
