A touch of red

This red blazer is one of my favorite things to wear BUT, it’s also one of the damn hardest to fit into any outfit. I have had so many moments where I’ve wanted to wear it, but decide not to last minute because it doesn’t seem like the right thing to wear (we all do this with one thing or another right?!) But I’m feeling super confident about how this outfit turned out WITH the blazer! I have a lot going on, but I like it.

Blazer: mine is vintage Nordstrom thrifted, but you can get a similar one here by Trina Turk. Sweater: Alexander Wang, thrifted. Pants: JBrand. Boots: Boutique 9, on sale!! And partially purchased with my Shopbop credit (they’re one of my sponsors). Scarf: Madewell, from a few years ago. Purse: Botkier. Gloves: vintage.

I’m definitely loving the high/low mix that this outfit had going on :) Now, to find more ways to wear this blazer!

      Thanks, as another comment pointed out, it’s just a hard color to wear, period!

    You look great in your red blazer! I have a hard time with the color red in general for some reason. I don’t think it’s an easy one to pull off. You’re doing so effortlessly, though!

      for real, I don’t have much red in my wardrobe at all! I’m going to email you soon Rachel :)

    I feel like we all have pieces like that – we could love it and want to wear it and yet, struggle to style it! I do like the look you’ve put together here a lot!

    I have a red blazer and I also have a hard time making outfits with it. I love how you put this look together though, the blazer looks gorgeous on you!
