BODACIOUS BLAZER

perfectblazer-wanjiru-kariuki-6

Hallo darlings, trust your week was terrific. I wish I could say the same but unfortunately not. The last one week everything seemed to move the opposite direction and I learnt a few lessons. You can have your plans laid out perfectly but only Gods’ will prevail. It’s important to always surrender all our plans to him. Without diverting more from the topic let’s get started….

This happens to be so far the perfect blazer in my closet. I got it a few months ago for only ksh. 400 that is just 4$ during one of my thrift episodes. Affordability has always been my consideration and this was definitely a score. There is something mysterious about solid colors that baits me no matter how much I try to resist them. So your guess is right……I had to try it on and Voila. It fit like a glove and I shamelessly purchased it.

The other intriguing aspect of this blazer is its fabric texture. I believe its Viscose since it has a feel of cotton combined with a bit of silk which makes it smooth and very comfortable. The fabric is also not heavy giving you the advantage of picking it even on pretty warm weather.

I would rock it any day every day.It is my ideal timeless classic. Casually or formally ensemble it with darker or neutral toned outfits. The blazer aided me to pull a smart casual look. On a day I didn’t feel like dressing up but I still wanted to look stylish and comfortable. Just the undisputed apparel I needed to tone down my white Pants and Top.Off-course the strapped heels cemented the entire look.

Did I mention its arms can be folded to pull a boyfriend look? That is the kind of awesomeness it boasts and I feel it surpasses my definition of a perfect blazer.

    After planning I believe that God has the final say, sorry about everything that was happening, am sure you came out of it stronger! I love that you did a street look with the outfit because it actually brings the concept to life. The blazer is so chis and the fitting is perfection, it is also versatile which means it will literally go well with everything!! You look dashing!

    The best thing with the blog; the clothes are very functional every day wear with a unique professional touch not some weird “artistic” most fashion blogs display.

    U look very elegant. I like the colour of the blazer and the way you matched it with the white top and trousers which u look very nice in. 😉 I really like the outfit with those heels too they add a lot of sexiness to the look. Also u look very cute with your hair like this. X x x
