Now that I’ve actually got a couple of blazer-style jackets in my wardrobe arsenal, I’m wondering what the heck took me so long to become a convert to this wardrobe classic!!
I’m sure I’ll forever think of “tailored” pieces as constricting…the polar opposite of easy-breezy jerseys and knits. But have you noticed?? More and more traditionally non-stretchy fabrics (like denim!) seem to include a modest Lycra content to help items like jackets and blouses – and jeans, of course! – fit better and feel more comfortable.
Then there’s the fact that this particular double-breasted jacket (part of my “holiday” suit) is actually slouchy enough to wear a sweater underneath; you can’t see it, but today I’ve added a woollen cardi over my striped tee for some extra warmth…’cause it’s been a bit blustery in Vancouver again recently!!
And since we’re on the topic – there’s snow in our forecast again!! WTF?! I’m sooo over this uncharacteristically wintery weather we’ve been having; can someone please talk to the people in charge and make it stop?? Please?!
