Sydney maybe going through a rare February heat wave, but the shopping centres are trying to tell us all something very different. It’s happening and it’s something I am so ready for… cooler months.
No, I’m not yet ready for the drop in temperature but rather the chance to start layering again.*
With these months fast approaching, this French Connection blazer is the perfect piece to carry me there – through these months and then out the other side. I have no doubt this blazer will be hanging in my wardrobe at the front in the high rotation section the entire time.
This section has a few too many boyfriend blazers – many would think I am trying to dress like my boyfriend however I put it down to the fact that a good quality boyfriend blazer is both timeless and versatile. I find myself dressing up on most occasions though I truely feel most comfortable when I am in a comfy pair of kicks, my #explorerjojo hat, a boyfriend blazer and a bag that is big enough to carry my life. A typical day for me doesn’t involve sitting at a desk 9-5 – I am always on the go. As a fashion freelancer this French Connection tailored jacket with a jacquard print is perfect for me.
* A childhood and still a long-term dream of mine: following Summer around the world.
