The Best Wardrobe Staple for Work and Play

Hi, loves! So glad you stopped by today. We are halfway to the holiday weekend!! Does anybody have any big plans? We plan on sticking around town mostly. We will head to Waco on Saturday to watch our Bears play, but then we’re back in the Big D!

I don’t know about you, but I’ve had workwear on the brain lately. For those of you that don’t know, I am a speech therapist. I mostly see adult patients PRN, but will be supervising some speech therapy assistants this fall. The assistants will be covering maternity leaves in a school district, which means I need to beef up my workwear game. It’s still more casual than an office, but I do need to get some more staples.

Because this is just a part-time scenario, I’ve been trying to be strategic about the pieces I invest in. I have been trying to get only those pieces that are genuinely versatile. I want to be able to wear my workwear wardrobe out for drinks or on a date, too.

As I listed out the most versatile items I could think of, the blazer made the top of the list. For one, a blazer can be worn with any type of bottom – cutoff shorts, any type of skirt, slacks, jeans, white jeans, khaki pants, you name it. If you buy a neutral color blazer it can also be easily dressed up or down depending on the top you put on underneath. It has to be the best wardrobe staple, right?

I have this white blazer from LOFT that’s been perfect for summer, but I needed something more fall friendly. So, on my most recent shopping spree to Clotheshorse Anonymous, I was on a mission to find a blazer. I ended up finding this amazing blazer from Vince at just a fraction of the cost. I love the neutral color and all the ways I can wear it. I’ve already worn it with jeans and another time over a dress. Next up I plan on wearing it with a skirt!
