This outfit is a bit of a cheat, actually. I did wear the dress, the loafers & the bag on Wednesday, but not the blazer – instead I wore an old black Lululemon cardigan. I’ve been thinking about this blazer a lot, and whether I should get rid of it, so when I got home, I tried it on, and loved it with this dress.
I’ve had the blazer for quite some time, but haven’t worn it much because it’s INCREDIBLY itchy at the back of the neck, and anywhere else the camel hair touches my skin. I love it so much, and envision myself wearing it with my Hope trousers, and a white t-shirt, but I can’t get past how uncomfortable it is. I did wear it when I first got it with a black turtleneck, but I no longer have any turtlenecks…does anyone know any tricks to make the camel hair less itchy? is such a thing possible??
It’s also a little big for me now, in the shoulders especially, but if I can deal with the itchiness, that might be something I can have a tailor work on.
Again, though, if I was thinking a bit more about actually WEARING what I buy, I probably wouldn’t have bought the blazer in the first place (actually Leo bought it for me). But then again, it was several years ago, and I don’t remember thinking it was particularly itchy when I tried it on in the store, so how was I to know? At least I do now…
Happy Friday!! Any exciting weekend plans? We’re leaving in the wee hours of the morning to drive to Atlanta, taking Dagny with us. Should be “fun.” haha! I’m quite nervous actually, she hasn’t taken a very long car trip, and she’s not very excited about getting in the car at all. She does okay once she’s in, but then won’t get out! I’m going to give her some drops of rescue remedy for pets and see if that helps…
