THIS BLAZER, you guys. I've worn it about a million other times IRL since I bought it. If you've seen me out in the wild more than once, changes are, I was wearing this blazer. When I first tried it on in Anthom, a friend asked, ‘but why are the shoulders so low? It looks huge!’ But that didn’t matter because I knew. I knew it would soon become one of my favorite jackets precisely because of it’s perfect, oversized shape.
It’s very borrowed-from-my-boyfriend without actually looking like it. The way it falls, the way it FEELS…it’s magic.
This certainly wasn’t the first time I’d borrowed from the boys, so to say. I got this Calvin Klein coat for Christmas last year (much to the chagrin of my mom who insisted it was too big, no mom, that’s the style) and most of the shoes I wear every day (ESPECIALLY these gems from Everlane!) are very menswear-inspired. Then there was the time I wore my husband’s button-up as a skirt. That happened.
