{fashion files} the blazer




In my previous life, I worked in Corporate America so my daily uniform consisted of a suit.  I tried to push the style boundaries a bit, but there's only so far you can go in a law firm when you're working with the big guys.  So you can imagine I was a little hesitant to get behind the blazer trend.  Wear it in the office and out to play? No thank you.  BUT, let me tell you...I've converted.  It pulls together an outfit so effortlessly.  And I've recently purchased a boyfriend blazer...fabulous and comfortable.  Here's a little style inspiration courtesy of Pinterest






Are you wearing blazers outside the office?
Which brands have the best fit?

Happy Tuesday lovies,

I agree. Blazers are so great right now...i love all the different textiles that can be used to change the feel from casual to business.

I love blazers and def wear them outside of the office. I think they really add class to an outfit.

Oh that is soooo funny...I can totally relate. It took some convincing for me too!! I finally can embrace blazers and not associate them with working long hours!! Love your picks. :)
