First off - I am not a blazer person. I am a stay-at-home, yet still goes out for lunch once in awhile mom. However, for special occasions I have found that I have a BIG hole for dressier toppers that I can throw over a dress or slacks. On my last girls trip to Vegas in late May I marvelled at how put together my girlfriends looked as they boarded the planes wearing jeans or black leggings and various cool blazers. I don't think I looked bad - I usually wear a big cardi or pullover and ginormous scarf - but was impressed with how effortlessly chic these girls looked.
So as we shopped I kept this in mind. I picked up these two Theory Lanai blazers at the outlet mall. So, I don't have the option to return them - they are definitely keepers. I've had these since early June and have yet to wear them. Maybe because the weather has been too warm and I just haven't had a chance. Maybe also because I'm worried that I look like I'm trying to hard and they don't fit properly.
Just wondering if you fabbers could help me out. Is the fit passable? I really don't want to spend $ on tailoring but would if you think it's necessary. And for those of you who have seen much of my wardrobe, any styling tips? I have the black one on with the VC tube skirt only b/c I just bought it and was trying various combinations. I've noticed that both jackets feel fab with just a white tank underneath, but realistically I'd never do this b/c I would feel crazy-uncomfortable if I had to take the jacket off.
Last 2 shots are of my advisors who I am looking at most of the time in my photos. My kids are at camp and DH is golfing. As much as I love our pets I think I prefer the real-life advice of YLF Thanks in advance!
ETA jackets are 2 different sizes...can u tell?
