Back in Blazers

Blazer (super similar) - J. Crew / Tee (similar) - Target / Jeans - Madewell / Bag - Sole Society / Flats - Michael Kors / Watch - Wristology / Earrings - BaubleBar

Whenever I get stuck in that rut of "not having anything to wear" (which obviously isn't true since my closet is completely full), I always fall back on an old standby - blazer + tee. It feels casual yet polished, dressed up yet still comfortable, which really, is like living the dream. 

This Schoolboy blazer has been a favorite in my closet since I snagged it on clearance a couple of years ago. Unfortunately that clearance section meant that J. Crew was discontinuing this particular cut in favor of the Regent blazer, which I'm not in favor of because of the standing collar. No thank you! I've been looking for something similar, but hadn't had much luck. J. Crew Factory did release it's own Schoolboy blazer, which I tried on in stores and found to be a really similar cut and fabric as the original J.Crew version. Sadly it doesn't come in a tall though, so I'll have to keep relying on my old standby for now. Fingers crossed nothing happens to it! 

And can we talk about these flats?! My mom actually bought them for me for Christmas, which is crazy because buying shoes for someone with as picky of feet as me is tricky business. These fit like a dream though, they were so comfortable right out of the box! I haven't tested them by walking a long way in them yet (mostly because I'm scared - they do feel like they might give a blister if I do some real city walking) but for day-to-day errands and heading to work they're perfect! I think the style is so pretty and polished too, even though my sister said they look like something my grandma would wear. Of course, my grandma is a pretty stylish lady, so maybe it wasn't a dig!

I've been loving pairing these flats with my brown (faux) leather watch. I don't like to go too matchy-matchy with my accessories, but matching the leather of two items always makes me feel a little more polished. I always try to toss in a third matching leather (like a bag or a belt) but it makes me feel a little too "ladies who lunch" or like I'm following outdated fashion rules. And you know me, I'm a rule breaker! Okay, that's not true. I'm definitely a rule follower. I don't even like to jaywalk ;)
