When a Girl Loves a Blazer

January 18, 2021

Friends, I’ve had my eye on this blazer for awhile.  Sure I have two plaid blazers, one unstructured and one vintage, but this … THIS .. is the perfect blazer!  Everlane does it again, mixing a classic basic with a modern sense of cool.

Shop the Look:

The Oversized Blazer

The perfect modern take on the classic wool blazer, Everlane’s version is made of 63% Italian wool (100% recycled).  The double face weave gives it a subtantial weight and drape.  I couldn’t resist this classic glen plaid, but the jacket also comes in herringbone, pinstripes, as well as basic black and a beige twill.  Prepare to see this blazer A LOT!

Also wearing … my Everlane’s Curvy Cheeky Jeans, combat boots, a basic V-neck tee, and carrying my special bag and some fun edgy jewelry (see Shop the Post for all the links)!

Sending out a big thanks to Everlane for this gift! (Note to self: begging works! 😉)

This outfit would be a pretty easy one to recreate, Dolls.  Take a plaid blazer, a white tee, some modern jeans, and some combat boots (or other boots, or some Converse sneakers), and there you go!  Add some funky jewelry for a bit more edge!  If any of my outfits inspire your own, I’d love it if you sent me a snap or tagged me on social, Friends! (I promise not to share unless you want me to!)

Also on the blog lately, these cool distressed jeans, a leopard cashmere turtleneck, and some thoughts on saying goodbye to 2020 and hello to 2021.

And … a note to my new readers, if you haven’t already, check out my blog post series on wardrobe building.  You can find all the posts under the the drop down menu on the home page!

Hope all my fashion friends are practicing self-care and spending time every day doing something you love!


Fun & Fashion,

About the blog: Fashion Should Be Fun is ME talking to YOU, other middle-aged women who are over 40, but not over fashion.  We still want to look beautiful and stylish.  We still want to have fun with trends.  And we don’t need anyone giving us rules, because we’re all different. This is a place for me to share my love of fashion with you, including style ideas, tips, trends, and inspiration. I know how liking the way we look can translate into confidence and energy. I know we have so much life left to live and so much adventure ahead of us. Let’s show the world you’re never too old to have fun and be fierce!
