What I'm Wearing: Rhythm Nation

It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood, well except the chilly air, but I won't complain about the sunshine. It's invigorating! I was eager to get back out this fun striped skirt that I've only wore once so far. I get a little mad at myself when I rediscover something in my closet that I love and realize I've barely wore it. Oh well, I'm making up for it now.

My mom thrifted this gorgeous cobalt leather blazer for me. Have I mentioned how awesome my mom is? Well she is, and she has amazing taste. This particular blazer has massive shoulder pads. I feel like I belong in an 80's music video so call me Janet, or Miss Jackson if you're nasty.
Sweater: Rue 21, Blazer: Thrifted (Thanks, Mom), Skirt: Express, Necklace: JC Penney
Tights: gift, Boots: Second Chance Consignment

  1. Let's talk about how amazing this look is and how I am about to go to Goodwill right now and scout out a colored blazer.
    Love you!

  2. Kassi, what a bitchin' blazer! Your mom's got some magic thrifting fingers because this is the find of the century. Nicely done - I'm jealous ;)

  20. A cobalt blue blazer? This is an awesome find, you and your Mom have such great luck at the thrift store! I love how you paired this jacket with that skirt, I can't wait to see how else you'll wear both pieces!

  21. What a fabulous outfit! Each item is awesome enough by itself but together they have superpowers. Primary colors are called that for a reason. P.S., Can I hire your mom as my personal shopper?

  22. That blazer is all kinds of awesome - what an amazing thrifted find. And the color is perfect on you, it makes such a statement.

Thank you so much for stopping by! Your comments always make me giddy like a school girl on a sugar high. Leave your link so I can creep on you. The good kind of creeping. Not the kind where I hang your pictures in my room or anything. (awkward shuffle)

Fashionably yours,
