the boyfriendless blazer

With approximately 6 months of nights rarely dipping below 80, I seemed to have forgotten what a nice blazer can do for an outfit.  Prompted by the upcoming week I’ll be spending in NY, I pulled out a couple of my blazers and honestly they were looking a little boxy/baggy.  I do recall being really into the boyfriend blazer.  Boyfriendless, I went in search of more of a statement and structure.  After a lovely Saturday morning of bottomless mimosas, I decided to check out Macy’s as they were flooding my inbox with sale alerting emails.

I ended up coming across this bar III, open, cropped, drop front blazer.  It’s kind of textured with some subtle details on the shoulders and elbows.  This is exactly the structure I was looking for.  The short back still shows my waist unlike the boyfriend blazers but the cut in the front is less casual than a regular cropped jacket.

The original price was $79 and it was marked down $47.50.  As usual, once you use the little price checker or pay with your Macy’s card some miraculous bonus savings usually cuts the price down even more and it did.  At about a 55% discount, I paid $35.50 and wore the above outfit out on a mild Miami, November evening with my DVF necklace and Ted Baker booties.
