Blazer BFF

Dress: Target (similar #1, similar #2)  |  Navy blazer: H&M (similar)  |  Orange pumps: Urban Outfitters (shop)  |  Tote: ebags.com (shop)

I'm pretty sure I copied this look from Kendi.  But I don't know why I'm bothering to tell you that since pretty much all my outfits are copied from Kendi.  So, let's move on.  Blazers and dresses.  Yet ANOTHER reason to love blazers.  If you haven't gotten the picture by now, blazers are a girl's best friend.  It doesn't matter what size or body type you are, if you find a blazer in the right cut it can be your secret weapon in taking an outfit up a notch.  Wear it over dresses, dress up jeans and a plain tee, dress up shorts, or wear it for work.  It will be your BFF 4 life.  (Hmm...looks like a One Piece Different Ways blazer edition needs to come soon...)

Besides watching some of the Olympics, we spent the weekend building Ikea furniture.  I know, we are old and boring.  Maybe that's why I have blazers for best friends...

  5. Ohhh I love Ikea! The shopping part though, not the building... I always end up with 5 or more extra screws at the end which is never a good sign. 

    This is such a cute outfit - I wish it wasn't so hot here and I could toss a blazer over my dresses!

    I started by wearing a simple dress to at the wedding ceremony, then added the blazer at the reception hall. A/C is chilling.

  22. I'd say those shoes of yours are really the best friend. The blazer comes in at an astonishingly close second, is all.

  28. I just ordered the orange-red pumps! Alot of the comments said they were uncomfortable...What do think?

    ReplyDelete
  29. I hate to say it, but I think it's true!  Not the most comfortable shoes, but I wear them with insoles and heel liners, which amps up the comfort level tremendously.
