I’ve been wearing a lot of blues and greens lately and it wouldn’t be me if I didn’t mix it up and throw a bright color into my normal neutral mix. Also, I know, I know. I’ve been wearing oversized blazers to death lately [like here and here] but I just love them! I think paired with sleek bottoms they’re such a fun and chic topper. Pro tip: if you ever want inspo on how to style these bad boys, just search “blazer” in the search bar in the upper right hand corner of my blog and all my posts will come up where I’ve ever styled a blazer! Anyway, have you ever had fashion kismet? This blazer was that for me. I’ve recently pared down my jacket collection to only ones I truly love and wear over and over. However, I knew the one thing I was missing was a fun, bold piece that was one solid bright color for summer. I was early [shocker] for an eye doctor appointment recently and popped into a furniture consignment store that was next door to kill time before my appointment started. In the back corner, they had a small rack of vintage clothing for sale. A pop of pink peeking behind a bunch of jackets caught my eye and it happened to be this gorgeous vintage Giorgio Armani blazer. I immediately tried it on and couldn’t check out fast enough. Doesn’t it have the most amazing Miami Vice vibes? I love the slightly padded shoulders and how it pairs perfectly with these white jeans that just scream warm weather. I know I’ll wear this blazer over dresses and with jeans and a million other ways. I immediately texted Mike about my victorious find and even he was impressed. The moral of the story is you never know where you’ll end up finding a hidden gem that may just complete your collection!
