Easy, Slouchy, Perfect Basics - The Stripe
Theory Blazer / / Top / / Jeans / / Shoes / / Bag

I used to have a blazer just like this one but a little bit more slouchy. It was probably 10 years ago and I was trying to copy one of Serena’s outfits from Gossip Girl. I bought it for $80 at Topshop and I (literally) wore it until it fell apart. The best.

When I spotted this one on my friend Helena, I was immediately nostalgic for my old one. I really love it. It was a little expensive but one of those pieces I know I will have and reach for forever (that’s the case with anything/everything Theory I have – their pieces always stand the test of time. I also love this clay color. My favorite Malene Birger trench is this color and I like that it’s slightly unexpected but still a great neutral that goes with everything. I did track some more affordable blazers below. The color of this one is perfect and I love the oversized cut of this one.

Also, these jeans. I love them so much. They’re a lot like my beloved Re/Done pair but under $100! If you’re in need of a good pair of summer denim I highly recommend this pair. (On that note, the Re/Done ones just went on sale!) This outfit is so boyfriend-y! I used to feel my best in dresses and skirts but lately all I want to wear is jeans, tees, and blazers!

  1. I love slouchy sleeves. I’m very insecure about my shoulders and I find that slouchy fits work well on me. Love the colour of the blazer too! 😀

  2. I love that color! It looks so great with black, and I bet it really pops against white. I love how some unexpected colors can make for the perfect basic. xAllie

    Such a classic combo. I love the clay color too. I have an mo851 shoulder bag that is exactly that color. Do you ever shop there? Really beautiful leather goods. I have 4 of their bags, I think my sister has 6. ( the holiday sale is great!). The clay and the black are so crisp together!
