Back in the City

I love pairing ripped jeans, a tank and a blazer together.  It’s a combo that’s simple, easy, and chic.  I last wore this pink blazer here.  This look was perfect for work meetings while this look is ideal for weekend outings.  The blazer just went on sale!  FYI if you’re in between sizes, I recommend sizing down.

    Hi Kat

    I have only just started following your blog and have already bought a few pieces you’ve worn and am lusting after many others. I absolutely adore this jacket and I am finding a common theme to the items you wear – you wear them better than the models in the retailers’ campaigns. I would never have given this jacket a second glance except for seeing it on you. What else do you wear it with?

    I really admire your style and congratulate you on your success. Thanks for the Shopbop recommendations which make shopping easy for us Aussie girls.

      Thanks Brandy!! I got the necklace so long ago I can’t remember what chain length it was – sorry about that! But I’m sure it will look great at either length! xoxo
