Look of the Day: Striped Blazer

After yesterdays fail, it took me forever to get dressed today. I kept second guessing everything I put on. I knew I wanted to wear this striped blazer because I found an inspiration photo that reminded me of it, but I couldn’t decide what to pair it with. I finally settled on a look and I’m happy that I liked it as much in the pictures as in the mirror. 

Here is the inspiration:
And here’s my look:

You can see the stripes and details better in this one.
The stripes in my blazer are far more subtle, but I like it a lot. I really love the cute bow in the front too. It’s super different from any other blazer that I have. I went with purple simply because I don’t have any cobalt blue pants and I didn’t want to go with navy because that looked too boring (I know because I tried it in my many outfit changes this morning). I like the pop of purple. These jeans are sometimes hard to find stuff to wear with, so I’m glad I found another way to wear them.
What do you think?
