When a casual coffee with a fellow blogger turns into a photo shoot, yay! Here’s the takeaway from this outfit – This elongated blazer from Zara. It’s one of my new staples. It doubles as a blazer and a jacket, and it’s long enough to wear over leggings. The length also adds a boyish sophistication, not your regular boring blazer. Living in Boston proper I see many a “classic”(aka outdated) work outfits, especially in the Financial District. I am lucky enough to work in a very casual office, but I try to maintain a professional look while still expressing my personal style. This outfit is the perfect representation. Classic doesn’t always mean unflattering and boxy ladies!! Here’s a tip – add layers with different angles or movement to add texture to an outfit, like I did here with the white draped vest under the jacket.
