Striped blazer

Blazer (new): H&M, Blouse: Pepe Jeans, Shoes: Piure, Jeans: H&M

As a teacher I do wear more cardigans than blazers. Why? Well, they are easier to wash, I can throw them nonchalantly over my chair when it is warm in my classroom and they are often very wrinkle-friendly.

That said, there is always this exception to the rule, so meet my striped blazer.

Let me list a few reasons for buying a blazer for a change. First of all, the blazer was on sale and being Dutch that is very, very tempting…On top of that the stripes of this blazer are vertical ones, which is great for petites. The colour scheme, as you can see, is such that I can combine it with many trousers in my wardrobe; something I appreciate for environmental and budget reasons. And although I am a huge fan of feminine clothes and patterns (I think my many floral dresses prove my point convincingly), I like the somewhat masculine look of this blazer a lot too.

As I have written on my Meet Me page: I love changes! A change in your routine is always good, be it in your wardrobe, your job/lessons, the people you socialise with or your food. Change keeps your mind flexible and this often leads to creative thoughts and new insights (more about this in my blogpost on mini breaks).

In what way do you change your (fashion) routine?
