Blazing Beauty

I have a philosophy that no matter the outfit, no matter how you feel, if you throw a blazer on it then you will feel like a million bucks. There ain’t nothing like a good ol’blazer. I remember when I first discovered my love for the blazer. I was in the 11th grade and my mom and I were planning to go have some family photos taken. Now when my mom and I try to get together to coordinate it can take us FOREVER! Well while we were looking for something to wear I came across a winter white blazer that my mom bought when earlier that year, which I stuck in the back of the closet, and pulled it out and decided it would be perfect because I knew we could pull some outfits together. My mom was in shock that I actually wanted to wear it but we looked so good! Ever since that day I live by the throw a blazer on it philosophy.

This outfit is the perfect example of one of those days when a blazer makes everything better. I wanted to keep it so simple-classic and when I think of simple-classic I think of all black everything. I decided to pair a black bodycon skirt with a black tank. I put on my black tights and knee high boots and then realized it was a little cold to be wearing a tank by itself and went to my collection of blazers. I thought to my myself what’s even more simple-classic than all black everything, all black everything with  some red in there and paired my checkered black and red blazer to cover up my arms. As I was getting ready the temperature started to drop outside so to finish my look I throw a scarf and my favorite black hat on and called it a day. 

This is the perfect look for a coffee house date or a Sunday brunch with your girlfriends. I have some may blazers (most which are thrifted) simply so that I can I live my philosophy and be the blazing beauty that I am.
