There is something about a solid blazer that just gives every outfit structure and class. Even though the fall weather that came last weekend is long gone, I couldn't help but to put on this tan blazer that I got from Target. I wanted it last year, but they sold out of my size both in stores and online. When I saw it again this year, I yanked it off the rack without hesitation. In my opinion, the quality is better than the J.Crew Factory version and less than $40.
I met a client for lunch yesterday and wanted to look polished, yet laid back and effortless. By adding the blazer as a final detail, I think I accomplished just what I was going for. I wish I would have had Ross take of photo without the jacket to show the dramatic difference one wardrobe staple can make to a style. If I had to choose my top five must have pieces for the fall (or for any season) everything I am wearing would make the list:
1. Solid, structured blazer
2. Pair of black heels or ankle boots
3. Stripe top for layering under jackets
4. Distressed denim, skinny or boyfriend fit
5. Tote bag (preferably printed) to spice up the simplest of outfits
