summer is all about easy-breezy outfits. and a blue linen blazer, white tee, and blue jeans (old, similar here) fit the bill. add a snazzy handbag and kitten heel sandals (old, similar here) and this ootd will take you anywhere in style.
if you have followed the blog for any length of time y’all know how much i love blazers! the trend this year for blazers is over-sized. think borrowed from the boys. and i think i like it. the style reminds me of boyfriend jeans that have a looser fit and are oh-so-comfy to wear. blazers are the perfect third piece any time of year. a blazer is always part of my style uniform that i lovingly refer to as the 4 B’s – blazer, button-down, blue jeans and ballet flats. and everyone needs a style uniform. one outfit that you can easily throw together on those days you have no idea what to wear. this post talks in-depth about how i break down my style uniform and tweak it from time to time.
today i’m wearing a blue linen blazer from a favorite brand of mine known for their simple classic style. not only does Everlane have this blue linen blazer in stock (although the sizes are limited) but it comes in bone and black. but if you’re already thinking fall classics i love, love, love this grey herringbone blazer or this glen plaid blazer.
this Rebecca Minkoff handbag was purchased specifically for an event i attended in atlanta. check out my post about Global Runway to see how this handbag complemented an evening look. but it also looks at ease paired with blue jeans. Rebecca Minkoff handbags are well made, reasonably priced, and always on-trend. luxury retailers like Neiman’s, Bloomies, and Nordstrom carry Rebecca Minkoff handbags. but i just discovered Amazon does too! recently, i purchased a Jody Croc Embossed Circle Crossbody Handbag from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. i can’t wait to break it out come fall.
metallic or nude shoes are a wardrobe staple as they go with everything.
happy thursday, gang! and, yes, fridays with oscar continues with a yummy cocktail and an easy summer main dish. see you then.
