Happy Monday, loves! I hope your week is off to a great start! I thought I’d be overwhelmed with my to-do list this morning, but my day has actually been quite enjoyable. Don’t get me wrong, my list is long, but I’ve adopted my dad’s way of tackling lists. Simply do one item at a time. Complete it well and then move onto the next. No need to look ahead and get overwhelmed. It’s kind of nice!
Do you guys wear blazers? I’ve actually steered clear of them for most of my life. I just thought they were so formal and boxy looking and only had a place in the working world. The image of a woman in a pencil skirt, pumps, and black blazer kept popping into my head and I just didn’t think that was me.
As my confidence has increased in my own personal style however, I figured I’d try to tackle the whole blazer trend. I love the way white blazers look and love how easy they are to layer in the Spring and Summer. Then I saw this one from LOFT, tried it on and loved it! On a side note, LOFT is killing it lately with their summer styles – did you know they are having 50% off their Spring faves today? All of their dresses are also all on sale for under $50!
Once you find a blazer that fits your look, it’s time to get styling! Styling a blazer in the summer takes a little extra work I think – especially if you live somewhere hot like Dallas! My tips for styling a blazer in the summer are finding one that is light weight, pairing it with lighter colors, and making sure you can roll the sleeves up. The great thing about a white blazer is that it acts like a denim jacket in that it can layer over anything – skirts, denim shorts, white jeans, you name it!
Do you have a white blazer? If so, how do you style it? I love hearing from you guys!
