Spots and Sparkles

     I gotta say, I love ponte knit blazers. When I discovered them a year or so ago, I couldn’t have been happier!  Alright, that might be an exaggeration,  but I was pretty pumped about it.  How could you not be?  It’s like the love child between a blazer and a sweatshirt! What’s not to love?!
     If there’s anything I despise, it has to be feeling confined or restricted.  If I put something on and it tugs, pulls, or is tight, I will not wear it.  Bras drive me crazy…even comfortable ones are uncomfortable to me!  I only jumped on the skinny jeans bandwagon in the last year because I was scared of them!  They just looked so…..umm…what’s the word…tight. Ya, that’s it!  I digress…the point is ponte knit blazers are super comfortable and as we all know, a blazer can totally make an outfit. This one is my favorite because of the leopard print.  It definitely sees a lot of action and I haven’t paired it with anything that it didn’t look good with.

Style Tip:  Classic items, like a blazer, can be just as versatile in an unexpected print as they are in a solid color.
