Business Meets Casual

 Can I tell you something a little crazy?  This blazer is 8 years old!!! It's gotta be the oldest thing in my closet.  I bought it as part of a business suit set from Express back when I was in college, and though the accompanying pants and pencil skirt are long gone, this classic black blazer always makes the cut when I'm doing a closet clean-out.

This outfit is simple and casual, but with a blazer thrown in the mix it's totally work appropriate.  It is also super easy to transition this look from the work day to date night.  Just throw in a fab pair of heels, a flirty clutch, a bright lip and you are out the door.

    1. Thanks girl!! I just found a very similar pair of sneaks at Kohls (here) for only $22! I think I'm going to get a pair in either red or mint. But you might be a little less upset about getting them dirty if you only spend ~$20 :)

  6. I absolutely love the dressy and casual mix here - plus the pop of color with that pretty purse! What a classic blazer, I've got items in my closet that are several years old too, thanks for sharing so I don't feel alone either!
