ELEVATED BLACK BLAZER WITH A TOUCH OF RED

I’ve really been working on trying to clean out my closet lately and weed out the items that I’ve only worn once or actually haven’t even worn at all. I feel like I’ve been working on this for over a year now but lately I’ve been tossing out more than normal and going back to the basics. I pulled out this black blazer a few weekends back for a lunch and now it’s been on constant rotation and I wondered why I haven’t been wearing it more often. A black blazer is an essential piece for every wardrobe and goes with anything, a tank, a stripped top, or a graphic tee. I purchased this blazer last year from Madewell when I wanted a longer version than my J.CREW Regent Blazer. I also loved the look of having a blazer without a collar, it seems a little more casual yet still polished. I put my favorite tank underneath it and by the way if you are in need of a basic black tank you need this one. I bought it at Anthropologie last year and can’t say enough good things about the way it wears and washes. The other piece I love about a good black blazer are the bottoms you can wear with it at anytime. A good pair of denim always goes well but what about these trousers or these faux leather leggings. I finished the look off with my new favorite pair of pumps from Zara, which are under $50 and extremely comfortable but obviously you can go with any shoes to complete the look. When Shanley and I were out shooting this day we came across this new hotel in downtown Kansas City with this amazing swanky bar called Dott Boss. The atmosphere was incredible complete with red velvet couches and chic Parisian vibes.
