A few years ago I had purchased this houndstooth patch work elbow blazer from the thrift store. Ever since then it has been lovingly dubbed the ‘Old Man Blazer’ (or OMB for short) by my family and friends. Maybe, it does look like something your grandfather would wear but I had fallen in love with the texture, the colour, and the patches on the elbows.
Now recently, I have seen the small rise of the old man blazer at stores like J Crew, Zara, and H&M.
I love softening up more masculine influenced items and am excited that this trend is picking up again! I decided to keep the look simple and casual by pairing my blazer with a wine coloured turtleneck and classic blue jeans!

I adore such blazers and used to have a great one that I got second hand. But then I became disabled and gained weight because I can't exercise anymore. Now I'm quite busty and they just don't seem to make blazers like this for the busty. : ( #disabilitystylehttp://www.sublimemercies.com/
