Easy, on-the-go outfit style with a Vintage Ralph Lauren Over-sized Blazer

I'm the first to tell anyone that my sense of style is average at best. I saw this vintage Ralph Lauren tweed overcoat for $25 and had to have it - knowing I have zero-to-no sewing skills. Truthfully, I originally purchased it for my husband to wear to work, but after trying it on...I realized this jacket was meant to be mine.

Paired with a few items from Amazon (linked below), this outfit is easy and quick for when I feel -unwell- and want to look like I have my life together. This is a men's blazer, so I decided to cut the shoulder pads out. This post will not be a tutorial for removing shoulder pads from vintage designer clothing...because I definitely made it up and I went a long and did not do a great job. But, from the outside, it's fine - just don't get too close.

Here are the accessories I paired this jacket with (all from Amazon - links are affiliated but reviews are my own).

  1. Staple Black Bodysuit I live in this thing. 95% Rayon, 5% Spandex gives it the perfect amount of stretch without feeling like I'm wearing a swimsuit or workout gear. I wear this bodysuit constantly - it's so easy to dress up or pair with sweats for a casual, everyday look.

This watch band upgrades every outfit I'm wearing - even when I'm hair-up, sweatpants, chilling with no make-up on. Easily adjusted and budget friendly.

Alexa, play Drake.

Okay, hear me out. These are as comfortable as pajamas, I will die on this hill. The distressed details are subtle, so I don't feel like I'm trying too hard, but still look put together - especially considering I got ready in 5 minutes with two kids on my hips 9 out of 10 times.

My crossbody was a thrift store find (Valentina, Vintage), but this lovely bag by Fossil has many similarities. It's smaller than I've usually carried ( bags), but I can still fit all the necessities. Classic staple. I would marry this bag. Too much? Okay.

5. Vintage Ralph Lauren Oversized Blazer

If you haven't checked out the inventory on Unclaimed Baggage's online store, please do immediately. I do feel bad that these people lost their luggage...but it also curates joy?

Outfit planning is really helping me reach my goal of dressing better in 2023. Thanks for reading!
