look of the day

Oversized Blazers

My #ootd (or outfit of the day for those unaware of fashion blogger hashtags) from two days ago included an oversized blazer. Many of you were asking where I got it so I decided to post some recommendations on how to rock this look and where to get it.

The oversized look has been in fashion for a while now, it’s still going strong and I personally love it. I’m a big fan of oversized jackets, overcoats, sweaters… and there are so many options as to the way you can wear them and look stylish. I often wear something tight or on the short side with something oversized as I like the juxtaposition of styles. But I also like oversized everything! For example culottes with a loose blouse and mens blazer.

Below are some great options for rocking the oversized look, click the images to shop.

The Kooples Long Line Satin Blazer in Emerald. This blazer is just stunning! It also comes in blush.

This French Girl blazer from J. Crew is a bestseller for good reason, the look and feel c’est superbe! (that may be incorrectly used, I haven’t taken from in 20 years!)

V-Day Advice and fashion tips.

I’m not big on Valentine’s day. Mostly because of the way girls/ women make it a big deal, whether they are single or attached. If in a relationship it somehow becomes this big adieu about what their man will do for them this year. Will he get them jewelry, chocolates, a teddy bear or dare I say… something in the “little blue box”???? And if he doesn’t send you flowers at work he’s dead meat. From experience, it sucks to be the only lady not getting flowers at work on Valentine’s day, but that’s me playing into the hands of the holiday marketers.

Sad single women are even worse… the melancholy, doldrums of all the single ladies on Valentine’s day is pathetic, trite and quite frankly, puke worthy.

The best Valentine’s day participants are the single and ready to mingle types who don’t give a fuck. I loved going out with my girls, sometimes with the intent of having an “anti-Valentine’s day” celebration, but it was all in good fun and always humourous. Besides, there’s plenty of time to spend Valentine’s day with your true love once you actually find them. So what’s the point of going out with some lame guy just for the sake of not being alone?? Go out with the people you truly like and want to spend time with, have fun and who know’s, maybe you’ll get struck by cupids arrow.

Here are some of my fave pieces to where out this V-day from Revolve.

For a more casual look…

Fallen Hearts Tee  paired with satin joggers, a mini skirt or your fave pair of going out jeans and some kick ass heels make for the perfect going out look.
