Diaries of a Pastoral Fashionista

Dearest fashionistos and fashionistas,
I'm sorry for neglecting the fashion component of this blog lately! To remedy that situation, today is all about fashion. And our main topic: the blazer.

As defined on dictionary.com, a blazer is a:

1. something that blazes or shines brightly.

2. a sports jacket, usually a solid color or striped, having metal buttons and sometimes an insignia on the breast pocket, as one worn by a member of a club, school, or the like.

3. a small cooking apparatus using as its source of heat a spirit lamp, hot coals, etc., used especially for preparing food at the table or outdoors.

I think we should focus on definition #2 for today's purposes.

Blazers are great and versatile.
I wore the same blazer twice this week. Once for work. And once for fun. By "for fun" I mean while I ran around doing errands. :)

My primary rule with blazers is similar to rules for pants and skirts and blouses. It needs to fit! Get a fitted blazer! And don't feel the need to buy a new one. Borrow from a friend or go to Goodwill. Goodwill has TONS of blazers. Just try them on and find one that you like. If you love it after a few weeks and want a new one - then you'll have a good idea of what to invest in.

Blazer 2

(I have a rule: No leggings to work because I know they make me look like I'm 17. But I still like to wear them on my day off from time to time! Do you have any leggings rules?)

Have a great weekend.

Wear a blazer!
Or sweatpants!
Or a t-shirt.
Or heels!
Or a clerical collar!


  1. outfit #2 is adorable. and I mean that in a totally not-17-years-old way. the blazer offsets the trendiness of the leggings.

  2. I love both outfits!! My leggings rule is to never wear them as pants ;-) Except maybe for yoga class...
