Man Repeller Blazer

Happy Monday loveys! I hope you had a wonderful weekend! We were snowed in for the beginning of it and we spent today, sleeping recovering from losing an hour today. I’m here with another item from my wardrobe that my husband absolutely hated. I’m going to start calling these pieces man repeller pieces. On one of my legendary thrifting trips I just had to snag this vintage blazer hanging in the coat section. I knew it would look beautiful on and it was made with such care and quality. I also want to actually start researching brands that I thrift to find the story or worth behind each piece.
I just loved the warm neutral hues of this plaid, corduroy long blazer/coat. I say blazer coat, because it’s the length of a blazer but is thick enough to pose as a jacket. I knew I wanted to keep the rest of my outfit crisp and understated. I achieved this by wearing a white button down shirt, dark skinny jeans, camel ankle booties, and my favorite camel tote bag

So what do you think about my blazer? Is it a piece only women love and men hate? 😀

    Oh man, I've definitely been struggling to recover from that lost hour of sleep as well. You're killing it in this "man repelling" blazer though!

    I say the blazer is very funky 🙂 The colors are a bit too autumn for me, but I do like it on you. Your jewelry is quite fancy too, both the necklace and the earrings.

    Have a nice week!
