The Wool Blazer

I almost didn't take any pictures of this outfit. Not because I don't like it - this is actually one of my go-to outfits these days and I feel quite good in it. No, I almost didn't take photos of this outfit because it was the end of a long day, my makeup wasn't fresh, I didn't bother to do anything with my hair that morning, and I got rained on just before the pictures were taken. 
Then I thought to myself, 'This is me. This is what I look like most days - hair unwashed and un-styled, same boots, same scarf, most likely rained on at some point during the day. Why can't I share that?' 
So I had my friend Carmen snap some pics of me.
It was almost dark so the photos are a bit fuzzy, but this is me - rough edges and all.

On a more sartorial note, I am really loving my new wool blazer from Zara. I saw it in the sales after Christmas but it was still sitting a bit outside of my budget (that being anything over a fiver after December!). A few weeks later I happened upon it again and lo and behold, it was marked down again (and I had been paid). I visited it a couple more times then decided to take the plunge. I'm trying to be much more intentional with my purchases, and I feel really confident that this will be a classic I'll come back to again and again. It's already proven its versatility in my wardrobe and I'm certain you'll be seeing it again soon.
What I'm Wearing 
Blazer - Zara (similar in navy)
Faux leather skirt - Zara (similar in black)
Boots - Clarks  
I did not intentionally plan to be a walking Zara add when I put together this outfit, I promise.
