Fashion, work wear

Tweed Blazer

I wouldn’t say that Talbots is necessarily my go-to style, but was drawn to this jacket when I found it at the thrift store.  I figured it would be good for work but it’s taken me over a year to figure out how to wear it without looking too stuffy. I’ve tried everything from chambray shirts, to graphic tees, to button downs with no luck. I had to turn to Pinterest for some inspiration and thanks to this look, I realized I felt the most comfortable in a simple tee. I wore this shirt with a sequined blazer (here) but haven’t been able to wear it since then because it’s too big now thanks to this little weight loss journey that I’m on. I was so happy when I found the same exact shirt in a smaller size at Marc’s on my weekly grocery shopping trip for 50 cents!
