Unpopular Opinion: Blazer Rut

Hi Everybody!! I just wanted to touch base with you all and let you in on a little challenge that I have set for my self. I know we all LOVE our blazers in different colors and shapes (I'm still on the prowl for an orange and a white one) however the "best staple piece" has become a crutch for me. I was noticing that I was throwing a blazer on with any and everything! I know that I am not the only one guilty of the "i'll just throw on a blazer" mentality because it just completes an outfit effortlessly (not to mention skimming right over those problem areas :). Having this mentality has hindered my creativity and all of my looks were starting to look identical, just different colors.

Note: This picture is only here for visual purposes. Ashley Olsen can do NO WRONG in my book :)

So with all of that said, of course I will not be omitting blazers from my wardrobe completely because they're just too fabulous, however, I have challenged myself to only wear a blazer if it is absolutely necessary for my look. Blazers are great for Color Blocking, the office, any many other occasions but not EVERY occasion REQUIRES one.

Do you think many people are beginning to use the blazer as a crutch? If so, let's get our creative juices flowing again and begin thinking outside of the box! Care to join me?


  1. Wow,..... This post is meant for me I will start stepping outside the box a bit more thanx for the great advice

    1. Yay!! I'm glad you like it! I was a bit skeptical about making a post about because I just knew ppl would laugh and think I was crazy lol. You know we love our blazers!

  2. The denim vest/jacket is my crutch. But I don't know if I can live without it!! I will try but damn if denim doesn't go with EVERYTHING!

  3. I agree 100%. I've purchased blazers from the thrift store and I haven't been able to wear them because I'm not sure what to wear them with, but I do agree that blazers are GREAT, but they're not necessary for every look! I wish I could participate in this challenge if I actually wore my blazers. LOL

  4. OMGGGGGGGGGGGG u are so right!!!!! Blazers can definitely become a crutch and I'm definitely going to join you on this challenge!

  5. actually, I have about six beautiful blazers and i don't wear them as often as i would like b/c of the's been so hot where i'm at and i couldn't imagine wearing one no matter what difference it would make in my look because i don't wanna pass out, but TRUST, i pull one out as soon as it gets windy lol
