Round Up: Another Blazer Edition

My last round up was during the winter so I wanted to share some of my more recent looks during the beautiful Spring weather that we are currently experiencing. Most of my warmer looks include blazers because, as you know (if you follow me on Instagram), I love a good blazer. Blazers are perfect for those cooler mornings and cold offices because you can take it off at any time, assuming you have an office-appropriate top underneath. ?

Blazer: The Limited | Top: Express | Pants: The Limited | Shoes: Nine West

Blazer: H&M | Top: The Limited | Pants: The Limited | Shoes: LOFT | Necklace: H&M

Disclaimer: Please excuse the wrinkles in this last look. I should have gotten my picture prior to sitting down all day. Anyway, it’s an over-sized button down with jeans and heels. One of my quick and easy go-to Casual Friday outfits.

Three Ways to Style Blush Pants

I love to buy pieces that I can style many different ways. These are the pieces on which I am willing to spend more than I normally would spend. Blush pants, for me, are the equivalent of black pants. They go with everything for every season, contrary to certain “rules of fashion” (whatever that means). This pair is from The Limited and is fully lined so they work for colder temps as well as warmer weather. I actually paid full price for these and that never happens. SN: I am a very cheap shopper, but I am a sucker for pink. Want me to buy it? Make it in pink and it’s sold. Anywho, I probably wear these pants to work every other week, all year long.  Each time I decide to wear them, I have envisioned a completely new look. Today, I am sharing with you 3 of my favorite ways to style these fabulous blush pants for work. I have also linked some options for blush pants.

My exact pants are no longer available since The Limited went out of business, but I found some other cute options here, here, and here.

How would you style your blush pants? Which one of the 3 styles presented is your fave?

Thanks for reading!

The Pink Ladies Pledge 

My favorite movie of all time is Grease 2. My cousins and I used to watch this movie so much that we still know all the lines and all the songs years later. They should’ve just given us the script. Ha! Anyway, there’s this girl group in the movie called the Pink Ladies. Growing up, I thought they were the coolest thing poppin’ with their pink bomber jackets.

When I saw this pink bomber jacket, I immediately thought of the Pink Ladies. I had to have it…if only to live out my dream of becoming a Pink Lady. Plus, bombers are all the rave right now so it just made sense.

Jacket: Boutique (via Poshmark)

This one is very lightweight,  which is perfect for the current weather. When it gets cooler, I’ll layer it with thicker pieces. It has gold zipper details on the sleeves and a gold zipper closure.

I have linked this jacket so that you can become a Pink Lady too (or just be cute in a pink bomber jacket). There are only a few sizes left. Mention that you saw it here on P&G and get 10% off!!

Remember, The Pink Ladies Pledge: To act cool. To look cool. And to beeeee cool. ?

Seriously, if you like musicals and haven’t seen Grease 2, you should watch it. Even if you don’t like musicals all like that (like me), still watch it. It’s the best movie.

Much love,

How to Transition into Fall: Layers

With it being cool in the mornings and warming up quite nicely during the day (not to mention the icebox of an office I work in), dressing in layers is a must. I like that I can accomplish this by taking pieces from my Summer wardrobe and transitioning them into Fall.

If you follow me on Instagram, you may remember this outfit from the Summer. I fell in love with this adorable peplum tank top from Express, which is obviously sold out now but I have linked a couple of options from Poshmark. (If you’re lucky, they will be your size). I added a cute ruffled shirt underneath to make it office-appropriate and paired it with sandals and a pearl and gold necklace.

Peplum Tank Top: Express (Option 1, Option 2)

 

To transition this outfit into cooler days, I added this camel blazer from Forever 21, which I cannot find online, but I have linked another very cute option. I substituted the tan sandals for these blush pumps that I am obsessed with from Calvin Klein.

How to Incorporate Something New into Your Style

I am still not sure how to put my style into words. I just know it when I see it. There are certain items that I see where I am like “Ooh, yeah, that’s me. I gotta have that.” But then there are other times where I will be like “Oh, that’s cute” and keep moving because although it is cute, it is not my style. However, occasionally I like to take that “Oh, that’s cute” item and make it my style. It becomes a challenge and I love a good challenge.

This vintage-style blouse, for example, would not normally be a piece that would “fit my style.” The high neck and embroidery details on the front caught my eye. It was so white and flowy and feminine. Plus, it was my size and on clearance for only $5 so I couldn’t just let it stay there! That would have just been rude. (And I am not a rude person.)

The best way to incorporate a “different” item into your style is to pair it with pieces from your signature look. One of my signature looks consists of a cute shirt, skinny jeans, and cute heels. So to make this blouse my own, I paired it with a pair of my favorite skinny jeans and my favorite pink heels.

I love the embroidery. For me, this detail takes the blouse to another level. Very soft and feminine.

Had to get that sassy pose in! My mini-photographer had me being silly.
