If you aren’t a Newsletter subscriber then you may not know that during the month of August I’m showcasing 20 looks to help you get motivated to go back to the office with a focus on Blazers – the quintessential #backtowork staple. #BlazerBonanza

Week One Recap

The first week showcased lots of linen blends in staple colors to make the most of the last bit of the Summer season. It also included my favorite bargain blazer, the greatest jeans ever and a fun color combo! #RecapRoundup


My month of blazers started with a closet staple because I wanted to prove a few things…

One – Navy really is a neutral (paired with what I consider another neutral). #NeutralNotBoring

Two – You don’t need to match your shoes to your hem or your jacket or whatever other crazy “rules” people proclaim. #RuleBreaker

My navy blazer is a light linen blend from Club Monaco but when it comes to Navy and Blazers you’ve got choices. #SoManyChoices


Tuesday included more stripes and a staple that is likely (or should be) a part of everyone’s work wardrobe – the black blazer. Mine is old Marc Jacobs but just like navy there are plenty of options. #BlackBlazerBonanza


I originally styled Wednesday’s blazer with an all white ensemble – including the amazing MM.Lafleur jeans but then decided I needed to give an all black look a try too – with another pair of winning jeans. #BlackorWhiteWins

This blazer took me by surprise! It’s one of only two bargain blazers I am recommending during the series. It’s only $35 but looks and feels like a higher end beauty and is an absolute must buy! (Also comes in cream and black). #TargetForTheWin


It wouldn’t be a #blazerbonanza without a least one blazer from @jcrew … my favorite style is the Parke Blazer (I own three). I’m currently living in my linen blend ones thanks to to the current heat in Virginia and you will be seeing my pink one soon (scroll down). #DogDaysOfSummer

I paired my blue one with a dress – also necessary to tolerate Virginia’s blistering weather. The real beauty of a dress though, #oneanddone – no coordination required. Prepare for several more dress appearances throughout the month. #Thoughtless


Casual and fun was the motif for Friday. Wearing the same style Levis as in the black bargain blazers look (just a different wash) and the most amazing olive blazer from Whistles paired with a pop of pink (top and shoes). #FunFriday

I highly recommend adding some olive green to your closet. It’s a great neutral alternative. Treat it just as you would brown or navy and pair it with any color. I especially like it with red but neon pink works too. #FunFriday

Week Two Sneak Peek

Prepare to see more of the MM.Lafleur winning pants. Not only are they versatile but super comfortable. Not pajamas in the office comfortable but absolutely more appropriate!! Also, prepare for another J.Crew Parke Blazer – this time in a fun pink. #PickPink

This week I will also be styling my first of several Veronica Beard beauties. I consider this my go to blazer brand and I have a closet full of them. Up first – plaid! #MadForPlaid

I have been seeing this plaid Miller Blazer everywhere at a great price. Check out The RealReal, PoshMark and Ebay to get your hands on this quality brand at a major discount. The colors on this plaid are perfect for the soon to be cooler temps. #BeautyAtABargain
