I haven’t actually posted on this blog for over a year. This post is just to remind you all that I am alive! I wanted to post a bit more content here before I get my head down in books again.
As soon as I saw this red longline blazer I knew I had to buy it! Red is the colour of the season and this blazer just felt like the right way to channel it. Blazers are often associated with workwear, but I didn’t want this blazer to fit in with the workplace. But the bold and bright colour, along with the padded shoulders and longline fit, made this blazer the perfect evening piece.
Wary of overdoing the whole outfit, I opted for high-waisted black cigarette pants to offset the blazer’s longline fit. The additional white ribbed shirt made sure that all attention was on the red. Overall, I wanted this outfit to emulate what a confident, sophisticated woman would choose to wear. A woman who isn’t afraid of mixing conventional pieces with modern tailoring and bright colours.
I bought these heels from here. They are six inches and very glam but surprisingly pretty easy to walk in! I wish I wore heels more often because they really do add the finishing touch to any outfit.
