Blazer and Boots | Place du March Saint-Honore

H&M cotton blazer, 7 For All Mankind shirt, Cheap Monday slacks, SM Accessories belt (Php249.75), Red Wing boots

While on vacation, limited wardrobe choices can be a good thing because you sometimes accidentally put together clothes that you normally wouldn’t. It makes one think of practicality and appropriateness when dressing up, and also checking the day’s climate.

In less than predictable weather, an unlined cotton blazer is a good piece to have when the wind decides to pick up in speed and/or if you’re suddenly cold in just a shirt. Also, when the temperature rises you can still be comfortable and not sweat buckets trying to look presentable. A pop of color care of SM Accessories’ belt goes well with cotton trousers that are a relaxed and lightweight alternative to jeans, and are ridiculously easy to match. The sturdy Red Wing boots on the other hand can take a beating through rain, cobblestones, and in the unlikely situation, snow.
