Statement Blazer, Velvet Dress

It's really strange but I feel like my entire life did a 180 last week. I went from feeling so sad and overwhelmed (for 5+ months) to so excited about life. The past few months haven't been easy for me so I'm really glad things seem to be turning around. So, in honor of feeling happy and looking forward - I wore a bolder outfit to celebrate. 






There are a few reasons why I'm so excited about life, which I'll share with you all once I get the details planned out (it involves a good bit of travel & moving!). But also - the weather! I know I've been saying this a lot recently but I am truly so excited the weather is cooling down. I forgot how much I love wearing layers. And tights? Oh my god, I missed them. No need to shave my legs anymore, amiright? 

Anyways - enough rambling! the outfit! 





This blazer is probably the coolest item of clothing I have in my closet right now. Probably ever. No doubt about it. I found it at a Buffalo Exchange last year and got it for free because they took some of my old clothes. I don't get to wear it too often but when I do - it's a good day.






As for the rest of my outfit I decided to try wearing a velvet dress I thrifted (orignally Forever 21) just to add something else a little bit different to the look! I also wore some maroon tights from Forever 21 as well as my trusty black booties from Nordstrom. 



I also wore a nice berry lip since it matched so well with the jacket! This look is a bit daring for me so I'd probably wear it to a party where it might be a bit more acceptable. But I really love how the mixtures of the textures and colors worked. 

Please let me know what you think in the comments!

  1. I am so happy to hear things are going well in life! Travel and moving are both so exciting! I can't wait to read the details. :) As for your outfit...gah I love it! Purple is my favorite and I love blazers, yours is so fun and unique! The berry lip color is perfect, too! Haha, and I couldn't agree more about the cooler temperatures. I could cry I'm so happy about wearing tights again. Haha.

    Hope you have a wonderful week, Lee!

  3. I love that blazer! You are so brave with your outfits.

    I have a confession - even in the summer I rarely shave my legs. Ugh, I hate it. I have pretty sensitive skin so it's always a big pain to shave and you know what? I do what I want!

    I'm sorry you've been sad - I definitely understand that. If you ever need someone to talk to, feel free to message me! I'm so excited for what the future holds for you and I'm glad we get to go on the journey (at least in part) with you. (:

    1. Thanks so much!

      and to be honest - I don't shave my legs that much in the summer either! Blonde hair makes it a little easier :)

      and thanks so much! I might take you up on that offer sometime. I'm so excited to share the details of my next adventure in life soon!
