I know what you’re thinking.Perfect time to try out the Theory of the Office Blazer, right?This is what I wore, enhanced by finger guns:

The Office Blazer is a blazer that lives in my office that I can throw on over whatever I am wearing to instantly professor it up.I wore jeans, a t-shirt and sneakers to campus.Obviously this is the greatest t-shirt ever though I do feel that it is less than professional to wear words on my breasts, regardless of how awesome my bra is (seriously, they’re like god’s little apples in this picture, aren’t they?).Sans blazer, I think this is a very campus-inappropriate ensemble, but perfect for testing the Theory of the Office Blazer.
When I emerged from my office to stomp around campus under the guise of getting a coffee (stomping around is an integral part of my writing process, as is coffee), I threw on my Office Blazer.I immediately ran into a colleague, who is always well put together, who remarked on “what I had going on” outfit-wise.My colleague joined me for coffee and I invited her to inventory my attire.
“It’s just jeans and a t-shirt, plus the Office Blazer”, I told her, giddy with the success of a productive experiment (It seemed inappropriate to discuss my bra with a colleague though, apparently, not inappropriate for the internet.).
Her eyes widened, “That’s brilliant!”
She now has an Office Blazer of her own.
