I’m not much of a blazer person. This is probably because I don’t work in a typical office environment with a dress code. So, blazers have sort of slipped through the cracks of my wardrobe. However, whether you work in an office setting or not, this here blazer is my new found love and a great addition to any wardrobe!
I had tried it on when I was at the ModCloth FitShop in DC a couple months back. I was so glad my stylist suggested I try it! I NEVER would’ve ordered it otherwise. Not because it doesn’t look perfectly nice on the website. I just tend to get tunnel vision sometimes when I’m shopping.
This blazer is an incredibly versatile piece for my closet. It goes with SO many different colors and prints. I can’t wait to break it out again. Actually, spoiler alert, it’ll be on the blog again on Friday, for a more casual look.
The fit is true to size, and the sleeves are quite long. I usually find that most of my sleeves are short. So, I’m pleased that this blazer actually has sleeves that fit me! However, if you’re someone with the opposite problem, this is something to keep in mind.
The fabric for this jacket is also a nice, soft, stretchy material. So, it’s comfortable to wear all day. I love the shoulders and button details as well! (Plus, it comes in 3 other colors!)
I do have a complaint, though…there aren’t any pockets in this blazer. I really wish it had some. It would be absolutely perfect if I had a place for my hands.
Thankfully, almost all of my skirts and dresses have pockets these days! Also, if you’re new here, this skirt is also amazing, has pockets and goes with everything. I’ve worn it about a gazillion times (like here & here). However, it runs pretty large. I sized down a whole size.

Oofta! I didn’t plan to write an entire post about how much I love a blazer…but here we are! I think this is the only blazer I even own at the moment. Funny how things work out sometimes.
Are you a blazer person? Or are you like me, always passing them up? Let me know in the comments!
