Excuse the Frizz

by - Wednesday, August 01, 2018

Can we keep the focus on today's outfit and not the frizzy mess that is my hair? Scratch that, the focus needs to be on outfits only for the rest of the summer. (There's not much to say except I'm the worst when it comes to hair styling. Lack of patience and passion means I'm never going to improve.)

Back to the topic at hand -- today's outfit. I typically reach for shorter blazers/jackets with dresses because they're more formal and suitable for work. The combo with this dress have always felt a bit off to me. Since this dress is already a few inches above the knees, a short blazer makes the dress look even shorter. Then add in heels and I feel like there's so much skin showing.

The long cardigan with dresses look has been popular for awhile. So I figured I can replicate that look with a longer blazer. I think the end result worked out well! A bit business + a bit casual = business casual.
