Striped Blazer | Workwear Wednseday

May 18, 2016

Fashion Fact: Nothing says “professional” like a blazer.  Which is actually one of the many reasons I resisted getting a blazer for so long.  In fact, my very first blazer I ever bought was this one, which I thrifted, and, to my surprise, loved!  I still don’t need to wear a blazer often, but now that I know how versatile they can actually be, I do have a couple more in my closet, including my black and blue striped blazer that I’m sharing today.

I found this ultra-comfortable Ellen Tracy knit blazer at Costco, of all places, for only $12!  I love the combination of the bright cobalt blue and black stripes and, of course, the polka dot lining.  I wore this to work last week when I was proctoring an A.P. test and needed to look a little more professional than usual.  Paired with gray skinny jeans, a white blouse and nude flats (because you bet I  was on my feet all day!), the outfit was comfortable, but still showed confidence and competence.

      Thank you, and I know right?! I couldn’t quite believe it when I tried this blazer on at Costco. I thought for sure it would fit weird or something, and I almost put it back, but I’m so glad I decided to buy it!! And, yes, I knew you would love the polka dot lining!! :)
