Confession time, I adore everything about schoolboy blazers, from their fit and fabric to their little gold buttons and accentuated shoulders. Unlike other blazers what's so great about the schoolboy type is how easily they transition from casual wear to business wear. I threw on some fun coloured pumps to break up an otherwise tonal look. Please tell me I'm not the only one who matches my lips to my shoes.
Perfect fit aside, these blazers also take me back to my school years where I was stuck wearing a navy wool Ralph Laurenesque schoolboy blazer (more Harry Potter than Gossip Girl) everyday for the entire 6 years of my secondary education. At the time I couldn't wait to break free of my stuffy uniform. Who knew years later I'd still be wearing the same thing. This leads me to wonder.. will I still be wearing skinny jeans when I'm 80? I'm sure I'll be gaunt and sickly enough to pull them off a la Alexa Chung.
