Where do all these checkered blazers come from at the moment?
So guys, sometimes I sit down and wonder where trends actually come from. I mean really, from the beginning. Who invents them and why can’t I just invent a new viral trend like that?! Hm okay, anyway, what I’m talking about today is this new checkered blazer thing which seems to be so big among fashion people right now. Ever since I’d borrowed Max’ checkered blazer the other day and finally decided to buy my own, I’m seeing checkered blazers all over Instagram!
Is it possible that these aren’t even checkered blazers, but just a really really dangerous virus? Hehe… just saying. But isn’t it funny how you can suddenly see them everywhere? And how come everyone really likes them? I mean yes, they are amazing, but does that mean EVERYONE has to wear them now? Sooo intriguing!
But only and just because they can be seen all over Instagram these days, it won’t stop me from wearing mine almost all the time these days. Combined with my heavy, white jeans by Mango, the best cat-eye Gucci-sunglasses, my brown Hermès leather sandals, earrings by Jane Koenig* and a handmade Basket, the checkered Mango-blazer really turns into a French hommage à la Jane Birkin or, if you like it more modern, Jeanne Damas (which reminds me that I still wanted to shop the new collection by Rouje so don’t buy all of it just now, okay?!).
Anyway, in my dreams, I’m wearing this look sitting in a cute Parisian café, sipping a cup of nice café au lait, reading La Monde, while in reality, I’m wearing this look to the local cheap grocery store. C’est la vie, non?
How do you like my vintage-inspired look with the checkered blazer? Do you see yourself wearing a look like this? Oh and how do you like the pictures that we took the other day? Isn’t my love Max the most talented photography in the world?!
