Daily: Le Blazer (That's Fake French for "The Blazer")

Today is all about the blazer. Just thought I’d clue you in, as if you couldn’t tell from the title of the post. I don’t even want to think about how many blazers I own, considering I buy 95% of them at garage sales and thrift stores. I think I may be addicted. But what could be a healthier addiction than curve-skimming structured jackets? Here’s the breakdown:

Chambray Button-Up: Garage sale
Lace Blazer: Gift (LC by Lauren Conrad [Kohl’s])
Black Jeans: Old Navy
Flats: Gap
Watch: Garage sale
Ring: Von Maur
Necklace: Gift (American Eagle)
Earrings: Elder Beerman

Today is national wear-your-blazer day, thanks to Everybody, Everywear. My grandma bought me this gorgeous lace blazer for Christmas, and although I wore it a few weeks ago, I still feel like it’s new to me. I wanted to mix things up a bit by adding the chambray shirt underneath lace. A little unexpected touch goes a long way. Add a necklace with studs and some flats (that I’ve never worn before - whoops!), and I am all set and ready to go.
