blazers are a classic for a reason. one is the versatility they offer. anyone shuffling off to work this morning knows that slipping one on over a simple skirt and tee lends an air of authority. the cardigan style jacket for today’s ootd is inspired by chanel. hence, the layers of pearls. it is part of a two-piece suit last seen here. but that is the beauty of separates. the pieces can be pulled apart and put back together in so many different ways, depending on your mood. the skirt was last seen here. and for a little off-duty fun i hope you noticed the more-than-fab clutch. accessories like this can completely change-up your look. this classic skirt/blazer combo is office perfection when worn with black pumps and handbag. but once you slip into a pair of sandals and add a jazzy clutch the mood quickly shifts. isn’t it amazing how tiny details transform outfits?
