This is a dressy take on my fave weekend uniform. Instead of a casual jacket, I subbed in a casual blazer, which might seem like a subtle distinction, but it somehow seems to make a real difference in the overall vibe of the outfit. I wore it for a family event that was casual but not, like, sweatpants casual. A print blazer is not usually one of my go-tos, because they can be one-trick ponies, but the print of this one features pansies (unless my eyes deceive me), so of course I had to have it. Luckily, it was comfortable enough that I didn’t feel the need to take it off at any point in the evening, which is high praise for a blazer in my books. The fabric is not particularly stretchy; it’s the roomy, slouchy cut that’s the main source of comfort here. I’m not complaining.

Although light grey is one of my wardrobe palette neutrals, I don’t wear a lot of it very often. Unlike dark grey, light grey is hard to colour match; there are definitely “warm” light greys, and “cool” light greys, and they look *terrible* together. Although this Antonio Melani sweater and my AG jeans are not precisely the same shade, they’re close enough (and on the same side of the warmth spectrum) to go together decently well.

  1. I love this jacket! What size did you get for the slouch factor? Thanks! And the grays look nice together. 🙂
