We got a Martian rhyme for Martian Martian time

We got a Martian rhyme for Martian Martian time

Discovered this blazer as part of a skirt suit at a thrift store and was kind of blown away that no one else had nabbed it yet. $28 for the skirt and the blazer and only minimal tailoring was required. I left it a bit wide, because I'm digging the big boxy cut on blazers at the moment. It makes me feel a like an old school mobster... or something. Don't the shoes look a little bit like space-age wingtips in this picture? I feel that the blazer brought out that quality in them.

What have you all have on the agenda for the weekend? I feel like I should have planned something since it's a long weekend, but I'm kind of looking forward to just lazing about.

What a great thrift store find! Love it paired with the skinny jeans! I am wondering, how tall are you? You look very tall and you always wear heels. I am nearly 6", but I wish I felt more confident in heels. I always feel like I am going to topple over! You pull those heels off effortlessly!

AH! I saw this come up on my newsfeed or whatever and I was stunned. This look is killer !! YESYESYES that Blazer -- what a steal !! I love what you made of the 'look' because it's nothing new, heels, jeans, and a blazer. But the Blazer is not your average cuteness and neither are the shoes and I love what you did with the pants. Okay I just ranted but seriously, such an amazing outfit. Propsss propsss mucho muchoo.

I do love the blazer and the shoes. They both look gorgeous on you. I have a very long weekend with not too much excitement planned, although tomorrow will allow city exploration with the boyfriend. Since I just came here for college a few days ago, I have not done the necessary exploration.
