Happy Friday!! I can’t tell you how good it feels to say that. It’s been a real doozy of a work week which included some major technological and internet malfunctions (Comcast=Lord Voldemort), hence the relatively sparse posting this week. But things are looking up! The weekend is almost here, and today I’m sharing two new favorites that are each, in their own right, the. actual. bomb.
The first is this pinstripe blazer that’s basically the most immaculate creation since N*Sync dropped their debut album. The longline cut, the shawl collar, the drape? It’s the Justin Timberlake of blazers. The second is this pair of perfect light-but-not-too-light wash mom jeans that basically have made all my dreams of becoming Kelly Kapowski come true minus the flawless brunette mane and cheerleader charm… and maybe like one or 4,000 other things.
Honestly, I have been searching for the perfect high-waisted tapered leg light wash jeans for almost three years, and not only did I finally spot them, but when my eyes darted down frantically to find the sub-$100 price tag, I’m not positive, but I’m 99.9% certain that somewhere, out-of-sight, Celine Dion sang a triumphant rendition of I Drove All Night (to get to youuuuu) and a rainbow appeared overhead as I clutched the nearly 100% cotton, high-waisted masterpiece in my arms.
That is to say that I was shopping online from my couch, so in that particular moment, there wasn’t so much a physical price tag, an actual rainbow or a lot of clutching of the jeans themselves, per se, but Celine Dion was playing in the background because when do I not have Celine Dion playing in the background? So that’s still a fairly accurate description of the moment.
Whether you pair the blazer with jeans for a casual Friday ensemble or turn it up with a sleek pencil skirt for a more business formal look, it’s an amazing, classic piece to add to your work wardrobe (and play wardrobe!) and it’s currently 30% off! Soooo it may have technically been a crummy work week, but finding both my new favorite jeans under $100 AND the best blazer of all time on major sale? That’s God’s work is what that is.
