wardrobe staples: tailored blazer

Day 14 in my Fall 30X30, and I have once again turned to my closet savior - the blazer.
I have happily amassed a collection of blazers - in classics colors (white linen, black & navy), and in some fun extras (olive velvet, striped jersey), and they consistently turn my other go-to wardrobe pieces into sophisticated outfits. 
{ What I Wore: Gap blazer & khakis // J.Crew sweater // ShoeMint Mona loafers }
{ Get the look }
navy blazer {$39.99} + pink sweater {$24.94} + khakis {$24.99} + gold loafers {$29.00}

My blazers carry me through all seasons, and I have picked out my favorite looks in recent history to show you the flexibility of this classic piece.

Scoop up this wardrobe staple in black, and then enjoy adding other colors/textures to your closet.
Still looking for the perfect blazer to fluff out your collection, shop my picks (most all under $50!)

  6. Cute outfit. I own 3 blazers. I just don't wear them much. I know I will get more use out of them during the colder month.
