Recently, my girl Jen from PNB asked her readers if we had ever received a package from an online purchase and found that it looked nothing like the online photos. Well, this blazer was one of those purchases for me. It was listed as coral; however, you and I both know that this is not coral. Now, I don’t know that it is actually mauve either, but we are going to go with it anyway. At least it’s closer to mauve than coral. Hmph. But anyway, although it was not at all what I was expecting, I actually like this funky color and could not wait to style it!
I wanted it to pop so I paired it with mostly neutral colors. This black knotted tee and gray skinnies were perfect. SN: I just love how these jeans make my legs look long. Don’t you think? Anyway, I added these blush lace up pumps and a long turquoise necklace to finish off the look.
I love the length of boyfriend blazers. They are perfect for those pants or jeans that may be a tad too tight for the office. They are long enough to cover the boo-tay and you look professional.
So anyway, I was expecting the boyfriend…just not the color. But I worked it out and I love the way it turned out.
How do you handle unexpected purchases?
