dressed up casual

First of the May purchases came in the other day - this loose black blazer from Aritzia. I like that it's longer and looser, so I can look put together, but not too put together! The blazer itself is quite thin, so it'll definitely be light enough to wear in the summer, and will keep me warm in over air-conditioned offices. I wore this outfit to work - pretty low key. As per usual, a striped shirt - hopefully you caught my last post about breton stripes, but they're a huge staple in my wardrobe. I love to wear visually simple clothing, which sometimes can get really boring when you're blogging about what you wear. But stripes are my "color." 

Life-wise, nothing really new. My boyfriend and I celebrated 6 years together last weekend. We've been dating since high school and then went to the same college. He's always been supportive of all the things that I do, whether it's job wise or hobby wise! Shout out to him for always being up for taking my outfit photos. Love you :*

  1. I like it! I've been sort-of looking for a blazer but I can't find one with the exact cut I like. Congrats on the 6 years :)

    1. Thanks!

      It took me a while to find the right boyfriend-style blazer like this one. The only other blazer I have is actually a suit jacket for interviews, but depending on how I style it, I can get away with wearing it casually as well.

  3. Congratulations on 6 years together! How did you like your shopping experience at Aritzia? Is their shipping pretty fast?

    1. Their shipping was actually quite fast! I placed the order and then later that night, got a notification that it would ship out the next day. The actual shipment itself was within a week.

      Their sizing is pretty true to size as well. The blazer above is a size 2, and it fits me properly in the shoulders, although the sleeves are quite oversized, I would say. But for the boyfriend/casual type blazer I was looking for, it was fine.
