I’ve been wanting a white blazer for a while and admiring this linen one from J. Crew specifically from afar. I told myself that it’s too white for a mother of a small kid and that I’ll end up, inevitably, getting something on it that won’t come out.
But the heart won over reason and I couldn’t be happier. I look for any occasion to wear it, and I sometimes wear it (even) without an occasion and just dress it down with shorts. If I could, I would sleep in it. I think you’ll see a lot more of it on the blog this summer.
For a non-traditional take on the work suite, I’ve paired the white blazer with white jeans. And the saddle tan accessories complete the mid-summer wear-to-work look.
I’m a huge fan of linen and the wrinkles don’t bother me. (Wish I could say the same about those on my face). I think the wrinkles are what make linen such a special material. Any piece of clothing in linen just looks cooler. It has an air of “I-don’t-care” attitude. And a white blazer in any other material would just look stuffy and like I’m trying too hard. But a white linen blazer is just a relaxed summer staple that I enjoy playing with, and coming up with all the different ways to dress up or down.
