This stripe knit blazer from Old Navy has to be the most comfortable blazer I own. It feels like you’re wearing your favorite worn in sweatshirt.  But I have to admit when I first tried it on after receiving it in  the mail I didn’t  like the fit, I’m thinking I should have ordered a size down, medium tall instead or large tall but unfortunately when I ordered this blazer a few weeks ago they were already sold out of the medium tall and I really wanted it and went with the large.  So it is a bit slouchy  in the body and the sleeves were too big.  So I went to work and slimmed the sleeves, when I tried it on again I liked it a whole lot more.  I decided not to alter the body portion just yet  because I actually liked the idea of this blazer being more casual and not so fitted once I fixed the sleeves. But looking at these pictures I think I need to attempt to take it in a tad in the upper region. Its funny how sometimes you really can’t see in a mirror what you can in pictures. So other than the fit of my blazer I’m liking this look.  Casual and cute.  If you haven’t already noticed, I’m really into stripes right now.  A borderline obsession..lol

Thank you for reading!
