Borrowed From The Boys: The Classic Black Blazer

Great news: the box full of my clothes from PJ arrived yesterday and I am SO pleased. But, yes, a little bit of context: remember when I talked about how I only have like 2% of my clothes here in Johor? I thought I should remedy that ASAP because I kept finding myself straying towards window-shopping for clothes online — something I don't even enjoy doing, by the way, but I was doing it more and more, which is not ideal!

I chalked that up to having so few options in front of my eyes. (My willpower can get a tad feeble, oop — I'm only human! Also, 2% is not a lot, no?) Obviously not being able to cross borders meant I needed help from someone in PJ and thankfully I have my ever-reliable younger sister to help me root through my disaster of a closet, pick out suitable choices, box them up, and send them over!

PS: I didn't really get my stuff in order at the PJ house before moving here, but in my defence, I naively thought I would go back after Covid cases go down, but then, well......I can't even bear to finish this sentence, because the handling of Covid here could have been a lot better, let's just leave it at that. I digress.

While waiting for my clothes to arrive, there was a day when I felt like dressing up anyway, but I thought I should think outside the box this time. And by "box", I meant the boxy space that occupies MY clothes. So outside of that "box", right next to it, is where Shah stores his clothes. Granted, it was also a "box" technically (I mean, it's a rectangular wardrobe with two compartments, so...two boxes?) but, still, a different one, and outside of my OWN box.

And from that other box, I took out this super versatile classic black blazer to go with a plain white tee and jeans. The blazer is one of my favourite things to see on Shah, but I guess it doesn't look too bad on me either, right?

Hope you like this outfit featuring something borrowed-from-the-boys! Thanks so much for reading, please do come back here for my next post 


  1. Thank you Humaira! I absolutely love blazers for their versatility and I think everyone and anyone looks good in them, so I'm on board with your plan to wear more of them =D

  2. Hahah, you and your raiding of your hubby's "box" - that made me smile. As always, you look super chic, fierce and put together. Love the blue walls, reminded my room when I was younger but not as polished as yours. I don't know how you keep everything so neat! Hahah. By the way, my sis is in PJ too, what are the odds. I've not seen her since forever. And they say, we're on the brink of a fourth wave. I have no words. Love your smile, btw! And the red lips, so pretty!

    1. Oh, you must miss your sister so much! I absolutely miss hanging out with my siblings =(

      My bedroom back in PJ also has similar dark blue walls, I don't know why I love them so much. About the neatness, my bedroom has good days and bad days, and also, I totally tidied up before snapping these photos!

      I hope this round of MCO will treat you and your family well, stay safe and take care Shanaz! <3
