Oversized Blazer + Best Jeans

Blazer, white blouse, blue jeans.  Classics. Staples. Effortless.  It’s my go to on Fridays (heeeeeyyyyy) and weekends.  I added a pop of color on my eyes with blue shadow and an orange necklace.

Every article and item was thrifted!!! Even the $298 J Brand Jeans I snagged at a consignment shop. 

I might go on a tangent about how much i’m going to miss warm weather with Fall and Wintter approaching…even thought it’s still in the 80’s in good ‘ol Savannah, Georgia.  But what I do love…is burgundy…marroon…deep plums.  Probably because their variations of red and purple, two of my favorite colors.  Not to mention, it’s always fall appropriate, but is a very trendy color…nails, hair, coats, shoes, etc.

I’ve been waiting to wear this dress because I love the bow, BUT LET ME TELL YOU….the arms are totally wonky.  I needed to pull it over my big hair, have my mom pull the dress down WHILE my dad was pulling my arm up. Yea, a mess. But it was worth it lol.  I paired this rich color dress with some rich boots…my Manolo Blahniks…that were unworn. And free. Remember?

It’s no secret that I love mixing patterns and prints….today, let’s add some texture.  Dressing for work, meetings, appointments or anything business casual/professional does not have to be mundane and repetitive.  Try mixing your suit separates and trousers with a bold top– in this case, I opted for a sequins J. Crew top and my blue blazer from a  matching suit paired with some straight leg trousers.

This top is commanding and it’s paired with a print. The outfit itself speaks, so as usual, keep the accessories to a minimum…but add a pop of color.  To offset the seasonal change, I paired with green earrings and a forest green bag that I can throw my Mac and planner…and a bunch of other crap into.

Try mixing your separates and tag me on social :).

Solid Work Dress

I’ve seen many women make a simple (and drab) mistake of pulling a dress out the closet without any thought.  No thought means, its too simple…simplistic without thought.
