Guys, I need to stop buying blazers. Or, I need to start figuring out how to wear the ones I have, and keep buying them. I think they look so so cute on other people...but I just don't find them to be comfortable! Maybe I'm not buying the correct size? Am I just incompetent? Please advise! 

I'm linking up with today with Bri at Work Clothes, I Suppose, for Third Thursday Threads: Blushing Beauty! Bri is styling a super cute sweater + blouse combo that you should definitely check out! Now that I think about it, I have a few blush colored pieces that I wear quite a bit (pleated skirt / silk blouse) but I felt specifically inspired to try this blazer for the challenge. I bought it on my birthday last year on a trip to H&M; after seeing it in the store, and yet again thinking, a blazer! How cool! I love the way blazers look! I need it! I just need to stop doing that. 

This ensemb is interesting to me in retrospect. I mentioned recently how my favorite outfits lately have been a mashup of different styles- this one seems to be a mashup of a BUNCH of different styles. The high-waisted jeans + floral peasant blouse are totally 70's, while the blazer polishes it for the office, and the sparkly flats add a hint of glam. Too much? Well, the cool thing about blogging is it's all trial & error anyway! 


I hope everyone is having a great start to the week! I had a crazy busy weekend, for the most part, so I'm just getting back in my normal groove and hoping for some sunshine. Talk to you soon!

You are such a beauty! How cool is this flower shirt with the blush blazer! Love both pieces and you look so chic with the straight hair and shiny shoes! And high waist jeans are definetly for the win :)

I don't find most blazers comfortable either, BUT I do love sweater blazers. You know the ones that feel like a cardigan, but still look super sleek. Those are my favorite! You look SO cute! This pale pink looks great on you!

Blazers and I are not friends. Super uncomfortable!
But you pull this off so beautifully! I love the floral top paired with it as well. Super super cute!
