We can’t be the only ones who remember playing dress up in our mom’s closet… Walking out tripping over the end of her totally 90’s navy floral button down dress, topped with a blazer that had shoulder pads so thick they knocked us in our chins… Lucky for us, women’s clothing has toned down a tad since 1997 –or whenever shoulder pads were in style– and bulky blazers have slimmed down to a size more fitting for the feminine frame.
Throw on that blazer and show them who’s boss!
…It’s you…You’re the boss. Remember that.

If you’re dead set on being as comfortable as possible (it’s just like that sometimes, we know) and would rather wear yoga pants from 2008 than throw on a pair of jeans, try a blazer with joggers or even leggings!
Unsolicited Leggings-Related Style Advice Ahead:
When wearing leggings, it’s important, and just simply more appropriate, to wear a top that falls at least to your upper thigh.
Save the crop tops for when you actually decide to break out the denim.
Now back to your regularly scheduled blog post.
