It might be hard to tell from the photos, since the colour proved almost impossible to capture accurately, but this blazer is a lovely shade of brick. I normally would have avoided it, since it’s uncomfortably close to my hair colour (and, as a ginger, I have been indoctrinated with a fear of orange and orange-leaning shades), but I loved the relaxed fit of the blazer and it was only $7. YOLO, and all that. I also thought that, hair considerations aside, the colour would provide an unexpected contrast (or complement) to some of my core wardrobe colours. Case in point, navy.
I also like how the colour of the blazer picks up on the copper shades in the scarf. I tend to wear mostly cool colours, but it’s nice to switch things up from time to time. That also applies to wearing scarves as accessories, which I haven’t done nearly often enough lately. I resisted the urge to add a brooch, which surely deserves a pat on the back because restraint is hard, you guys. On second thought, maybe only half a pat. I did give in and buy a bag charm flouf.
