Ahhh, so happy that it’s Friday and almost the weekend. Anyone have fun plans for the weekend?
This week it’s all about the jacket/blazer.
Like vests, I always felt like a fool wearing a jacket. I’ve been trying to buy them more these last few months, in preparation for my internship. I’ve been told my other health care professionals that people perceive you as having more authority/knowledge when in a medical environment, when you are wearing a jacket.
So, I’ve been trying to wear them more – and I actually wore one with a dress this past weekend for a date with Matt!
Anyway, back to the blue jacket I wore to work this week. I actually bought this jacket MONTHS ago, loved it at the time, and since it’s sat in my closet and I’ve had no idea what to do with it. I randomly saw it one day this week and decided to wear it.
I felt like a million bucks wearing this all day and I can’t believe I didn’t also buy this jacket in black when I had the chance.
I think I have shown y’all these shoes before –
I will also say, I really like these pants. I’ve been wearing the Worthington business pants for years (since I first graduated college 5 years ago!). These are very baggy on me compared to my other gap black pants I normally wear, but I still love the way they looked with this outfit.
Also, I love black business pants and could wear them every day, happily.
Here’s where everything is from:
- Black pants: Worthington by JC Penny ~$25
- Jacket: Nordstrom Rack $32
- White shirt: TJ Maxx $7
- Shoes: Ellen Tracy (I think) leather with snakeskin print kitten heels $40 – from DSW
- Necklace: Target $10
I really urge y’all to push yourselves out of your comfort zone when it comes to clothes. It really will give you a new sense of confidence, at any weight, when you make an attempt to present yourself well to others.
If nothing else, think of me looking like an idiot taking pictures in bathroom mirrors and how I post them on my blog for the world to see That should inspire you!
