Inspiration – J.Crew
Trying to incorporate my camel colored blazer into more outfits these days. I took this J.Crew ad as inspiration and while I like the idea in concept – I just don’t know that my jacket is the right cut for skinny jeans. Mine hits just above the hip but I think it should be slightly longer/more boyfriend cut to fit my proportions better. I think it makes my upper body look a little blocky. Luckily I live in Florida and it was 80 degrees by 11 AM so it was too hot to wear the jacket anyway.
