polished blazer


AS WITH MOST fashion bloggers, we have slight shopping addictions. And I use slight in the most sarcastic way possible. You can't deny it, friends! I am also one who loves to shop, but I also love a good deal. When I spotted a similar blazer to this one (at a store that is usually a tad out of my price range) I was so close to buying it. I loved the structure, the length, and the black-accented lapels - I was already creating multiple outfits that I could wear it with. Not to mention I was also conveniently ignoring the fact that I already own about seven blazers in a variety of styles and colours. 

But of course, I can justify anything. My most overused phrase when shopping is "It's for the sake of the blog!" And so, when I waltzed into H&M with a few friends and saw this beauty just hanging by itself between a few other random pieces, I was delighted. Just as beautiful, but without the hefty price tag. So although I love to shop, I can at least say that I am a smart shopper. Ha.

  6. Zara had a similar blazer (I'm sure for much more $$); what a great alternative! So cute over your romper, Chelle!

  7. Haha, I love that women can say that we "save" money when we buy something for a great deal. I almost got my husband to understand that logic :) Your blazer is really great, I'm glad you got it for such a steal and it's super cute paired with your romper!
