Checking It Off






Blazer- Zara via ebay; Top- Kohl's; Shorts- Old Navy; Necklace- Forever 21; Earrings- New York & Company; Gold chain bracelets- gifts, Cluster bracelet- Ebayed; Shoes- Target; Chevron ring- Bows to Toes Boutique

I have a list of items that I feel like I am missing in my wardrobe. Colored blazers has been on there for a long time. I got a teal one late winter this year which I like, but doesn't go with a lot of my tops. I had been debating between a red, pink, or coral blazer. The coral really goes with a lot more in my closet than the other colors would. I finally found one with striped lining (I love lined blazers!) on ebay of all places! I really like it with my new patterned shorts. This outfit is definitely not something I would have put together a few months ago, but I love the colors and patterns now. So excited to check colored blazer off my list! 

What do you feel like your wardrobe is missing?

    So cute, Laura! I'm crazy about colored blazers and have been on the hunt for them too.

  5. Well, actually - a pink or coral blazer is on my list! I think pink would be the most remixable for me, but I do love the coral option, as well. I'm hoping to find one on sale sometime!

  6. This is another of my favorites! I've been thinking about a coral blazer, too. I love the coral with the purple, and I love your shorts! Those are one of the ones I tried at Old Navy and just didn't work with my hips, which was a huge bummer because I love the pattern! I just filled a couple of my closet holes with the long sleeve striped tee and military vest on my blog today! Two things I think are going to get worn a lot this fall.

  7. Yay for colored blazers! This is such a great outfit. Right now I am on the look-out for nice subtle camo jeans and a classic (comfortable) black pump. But am also trying not to shop! ;)

  10. I have a coral blazer that I love, as well - it is such a great piece that adds so much to my outfits! I really like how you paired it with those fun shorts, too. So cute!

  11. Blazers are so perfect for work. You never know what classrooms will be warm and which will be freezing so they are a great layer!

  12. It was a new color combo for me, but I am loving coral and purple together!

  13. This is actually the first piece of clothing I've purchased because sizing (what if it doesn't fit?!) makes me nervous! But I had this on my watch list for over a month and couldn't find anything similar in stores. I am glad I purchased it!

  14. Thanks! Coral seems to go with so many more colors than I would have thought!

  15. Hot pink blazers are so cute, too! For now, I just stuck with coral, but if I ever find a pink one for a good price it will be mine!

  16. Those are cute pieces, perfect for remixing and layering! It's too bad the shorts didn't work for you! I was lucky and got 3 pairs on clearance for a steal! I have more problems finding capris and jeans that fit well.
