Embroidered Blazer + Slim Crop Jeans

I try to stop myself from buying blazers. I own too many and I rarely wear them. They don't really fit with my lifestyle. However, it's not everyday that you find a cute little embroidered blazer at the thrift store.

There I was picking some tops for my friend to try on at Savers.. Going against my first mind to squirrel it away for myself, I handed it over. She tried it on and we spot a huge coffee stain on the sleeve. Ugh. She decided to pass and I decided to take a chance on it. Thank you, thrift buddy. Thrifting is better with friends!

I spritzed it with stain remover and threw it in the wash ignoring the "dry clean" only part. It's cotton. C'mon! The stain vanished and blazer was as good as new.

It's has a really casual feel with a western style yoke in back so I'm going to treat it as a shirt and wear with jeans. My other blazers are more structured and can't pull the blazer and jeans look off like this one does.  

what to wear with black oxfords

I wore black jeans to better highlight the red embroidery. Black jeans play too much. Why do they attract so much lint? These happen to be a fuzz magnet. By the end of the day, the jeans are covered in ginormous lint balls.

I do like that they're actually cropped on my short legs. This is my preferred length but inseams are always super long and a proper crop is hard to come by. Sometimes intense want outweighs the practically of the situation. I can't go around lint rolling myself all day. I'll need to find other solutions. Please drop your best lint busting tips in comments. Thanks!

I elongated the legs with black shoes that also have a high heel then finished my look with pops of color in necklace and belt. Hopefully, drawing the eye back to my blazer which I happen to love and I'm really glad it ended up coming home with me. 

Are you a fan of embroidered blazers?

Adorable blazer!
I ignore the care tags sometimes too. I kept forgetting to put a suede blazer in the cleaners, and here it is fall again. I went ahead and washed it. Came out perfectly!
