The Bold Shoulder

For today's office ensemble, I pulled out this houndstooth blazer from last year that's just a bit too big for me. The puffed shoulders used to bother me because I thought they accentuated that fact. But now I love them! Everyone's saying the big shoulder is back. While you probably won't see me sporting any huge '80s shoulder pads or dramatically geometric silhouettes, a little broadness in the shoulder looks really chic right now.

That houndstooth jacket is pretty much the ultimate! I'm very jealous! ...the shoulder is totally back...but still I cut the shoulder pads out of my thrifted bouses, I usually look closer to Grid Iron that I do to Balmain!!

I love the shoes! Too bad there isn't anything like payless in Poland.

I seriously love the color combinations here!! The purple scarf with yellow skirt makes it interesting, but then you've added the black&white houndstooth with brown shoes (which are darling, by the way!), and that just kicks it up to a whole different level. Love this, Katy!
