Call Me What You Will, But Call Me Again

On this day I was running late, feeling rushed and frumpy and scatterbrained. I could not get it together. And then Nathan asked me to wear this blazer, which belongs to him. So I quickly changed tees to go with it, and had to go with the outfit because at that point I was late late late. And I didn’t feel good. In fact I didn’t love this look all day. But seeing it in pictures changed my mind.

Nathan was 100% right. That blazer looks great. I stand corrected.
And those are jeans I am not really comfortable in right now, but even they look pretty good.

Maybe it was just my mood. Or maybe I lacked perspective, but it’s finding out stuff like this that makes photographing daily outfits worth it. That plus you have all these pictures to access when you lack inspiration and you can look back and see “Oh yeah! That outfit! That was smashing” and re-wear it.

I sure hope he lets me borrow that blazer again! The arms were a bit tight at the top, because it’s a little boys blazer, but the discomfort was minimal compared with the look. And now that I know it looks so nice, I will be able to ignore the minor inconvenience caused by the sleeves, because it will be overshadowed by the convenience of feeling Fabulous.

Open blazers always make me feel really boxy, but when I look at myself in a mirror or on film I look super-chic. It's hard to overcome that feeling of boxiness though!

I think you look funky chic! Everything looks pulled together.

Even though you weren't really feelin' this outfit at the beginning, I think it's pretty awesome. It's simple and fun!

fashionflirt said...

That outfit looks SO GOOD. Easy breezy rocker style. Nathan knows what he's talking about!

Connie said...

Better a blazer a bit too small than a frumpy over sized one.

I love this look! I like how fitted yet flattering it all is.

Props to Nathan! And to you for looking SO very "smashing".

La Historiadora de Moda said...

That blazer does look great on you! I think that Nathan should relinquish his rights to it.

Erin...that's an outfit I would love to wear, but would end up looking like a total...well, I don't know, but a total something! You look great in it, kinda urban rocker-girl(or something-i'm SO not cool enough to know what that style is actually called...hahahaha!)! Love it! xoxoxo-misty:)

Brittany D'Lynne said...

Yea, that blazer really amps up the whole outfit. I can't tell its tight--and I certainly can't tell its a little boys! It looks wonderful on you!

text machine said...

this is one of my favourite outfits you've posted. the blazer is adorable and works great with the jeans and boots.

robin said...

OK, I obviously need to hit the thrift stores this weekend to find a boy's blazer for myself. This is a really great outfit! Also, "the convenience of feeling Fabulous" is a great quote, which I plan to borrow from (and credit) you in the future.

Lini said...

I'm such a sucker for a fitted blazer.

Charles said...

i love this outfit, and that tee is awesome too! very city casual-chic :) xx

Beth Ellen said...

I love that blazer on you! You should just magically hang on to it for him.

Future Lint said...

You do look smashing! I love little boys blazers... I need to stop buying them!

Kinsey said...

I love that blazer! I was so eager to get to the bottom of the post to see where I could pick it up myself. Too bad its a borrow! You look wonderful in it!

Peaches and Cream said...

This outfit looks great! Maybe you didn't feel comfortable because it is a bit of a departure from your usual style, I think. Or maybe just because of the time factor, I hate not having time to try another option, just in case - I'm always thinking 'what if it could have been better?!?'.

Kyla said...

This look was made for you! You look awesome - so chic, so flattering, so simple!
