Fun Blazer

I just picked up this blazer from The Scholar Shop, and I love the color and textures. Since it's a subtle red - cream - black nubby tweed, I decided on a black palette to enhance the blazer.

I'm still working out the kinks in my photo sessions, I don't have my "model" expressions down pat. I'll continue to post dork pics until I get used to posing!

Occasion: Work, no events
Blazer: Moschino, The Scholar Shop
Tank: Express, remixed
Pants: Paniz, The Scholar Shop
Boots: Cole Haan, The Scholar Shop

I like the straight leg silhouette of the pants. They have a high waist, which balances nicely with the proportions of the blazer. I'm wearing a capri Spanx underneath to give a smooth line.
