These pictures are actually from a while ago, but I didn’t post them because I look so sick in them, and rather drugged, especially in the photos with the blazer. But, I really did like this ensemble and so figure you can excuse my puffy eyes and red nose (thankfully that horrible head cold has passed).
I wore this jersey dress and blazer combo to lecture to 130ish students for an hour and a half. I was on cold meds and fighting a runny nose, but managed to pull through with a pretty good lecture, if I do say so myself. It was hot and rainy that day, which is common this time of year in Academichic Central, so I needed to look professional while managing to stay cool and comfy. I love this jersey dress for just that reason – it’s comfy and chic, but I felt I needed to take the professionalism up a notch, thus enter the blazer.
This blazer has been enjoying quite the revival lately. Once I rolled up the sleeves (making in 3/4 sleeved and revealing the contrasting pinstripe pattern of the lining) it suddenly seemed much easier to style and much more versatile. I’ve paired in with a fuller a-symmetrical skirt, with baggy jeans, and now with a jersey dress. I’m thinking next I might try it with my grey pencil skirt and eventually even with some walking shorts. Hopefully when I pull it out next time I won’t look half as red and drowsy!
