Christmas Shopping in an Oversized Blazer

 

This past weekend I ventured out with the family to the mall for the first time in a LONG time.  It was surprisingly not busy and as I chatted with the lady at the MAC store, she said that it was the slowest Black Friday she has ever worked.  I guess people in our little province are truly trying to stay at home and do their part as we battle the increase in COVID cases.  All that being said sometimes you have to go into a store to find what you need and that's just what we did.  The whole family came, and Mr. and I divided up to tackle a few odds and ends and also take our youngest from store to store so she could finish off her little shopping list.  The teenager is all done her Christmas shopping but she did join me in a couple of stores to help me out.  I think I am approximately 95% done Christmas shopping!!!!  There are now a few odds and ends such as going to a few local food stores to buy a few treats as gifts and the secret Santa at work,  but other than that I feel ready.  



Now the outfit I choose to wore was simple and casual, which is 100% why I love it.  This oversized blazer was a thrift find and I am so glad I bought it.  I am not used to wearing oversized clothing so it took a bit to get used to the look on me, but I like the change.  I've paired it up with jeans, such as these, black pants for work and heels, and next I'd like to pair it up with a simple dress or maybe a pencil skirt.  I kept the whole look simple, tucked in black top, simple silver jewelry, flat booties so I could tackle the mall, and a pop of RED lipstick because I was taking pictures without a mask and lets face it these days I rarely wear lipstick anymore because I am masked most of the day.  LOL!  Who else misses wearing lipstick?  Hahaha.









What's the next combination I should try with the oversized blazer?


Thanks for coming by to read and have a great weekend ahead!

  1. Hope you found lots of great finds! The oversized blazer is tricky for me...if I don't watch it I end up looking 20lbs heavier. Pairing it with my faux leather leggings helped.

    1. I hear you. I struggled with it too but find I like it best with fitted jeans, tucked in shirt, and then left open. Balancing out the bigger shape of the blazer with a fitted shape underneath. :)

  8. I love a blazer and jeans and it's great that you were able to have such a productive day of shopping! While I did most of my buying online I did go to the shops for a few things and I'm about to go out today to pick up the last gifts :) Then I just need to wrap them all, haha!

    Hope that you are having a nice week :)

  10. You nailed this look! And what a fab shopping outfit. Not only does it look uber chic but I love it's practicality. We are done with our Christmas shopping. To be honest, we don't really buy gifts. Just for my son but not much else. I hope you are having a great week so far and happy Thursday!

    1. Thanks so much. Sorry for the delay, I took sometime away to balance holiday pressures, work and family life; I know you know how it is.

      We had a CRAZY amount of gifts this year as all the aunts and uncles, grandparents on both sides, great-grandparents and community members dropped off items. It was a LOT. Many years my husband and I will just do a few stocking stuffers for each other and then buy something we want to experience but this year I guess with everything else we decided to buy surprise gifts for each other. Generally we don't really do gifts for birthdays and anniversaries.

      I hope your little guy had a magical Christmas and you are all able to take a break from the home schooling and business of the day to day.
