Blazer: J.Crew old (similar, other nice options here, herehere)  /  Sweater: H&M  (love this one)  /Jeans: Joe’s Jeans – on sale! / Boots: Nordstrom – on sale (other two options here and here $$$)  /  Bag: Rebecca Minkoff – almost exact color on sale /  Necklace: BaubleBar  /  Watch – Kate Spade 

Hope all of you had a great weekend!

There was a time I used to wear blazer a lot more than I have been this year.  It was my go-to look…jeans-tee-blazer-combo.  Blazers pull the entire look together and they just make the outfit look a lot more polished. 

And for some reason finding a good, nicely fitted blazer is not as easy as it seems.  When I saw this one I fell in love with the color and the fabric (it looks better in person than online, it gets great reviews). I tried it on and started laughing. It looked hilarious one me for some reason.  I want to give it another shot just because it’s is a really nice blazer and it might have been one of those days where everything just fit wrong. Or I might have had the wrong outfit on (or at least that’s what I keep trying to tell myself and forget that I looked like a boy in it). 

Are there any particular stores you like to shop at for blazers?

    I love how the J. Crew Schoolboy looks go great on everyone…but me! For some reason they just fit so boxy on me. I need to order the petite version and see if that helps! Most of my blazers are from H&M…they tend to fit a little more cropped and petite so I don't look like I'm swimming in them.xoxo,Andreawww.andreaeveryday.com

    I agree Lilly! I wore blazers often a few years ago, even last year actually. This time however, I'm not such a fan. I do think it's extremely hard to find one that fits just right. Most are either too loose or too tight on my arms, and often too short or too long! It's frustrating! You look great though! Love red on you 🙂

    I was just thinking the same thing the other day…I hadn't worn a blazer in forever. But I wore one on Thursday and Friday! I wish I had legs like yours to rock those OTK boots!-AJ
