blazer outfit post summer dresses work attire

treasured gems





Dress: Meeps [love this under $50 option] | Blazer: Vintage Escada [similar] | Heels: Nine West [love these] [similar with platform] [love these brown suede] | Bag: Vintage Mark Cross [similar] [similar on super sale] | Necklace: Rachel Mulherin c/o | Watch: BCBG | Bracelets: Alex and Ani | Shades: Amazon [similar]

This blazer is one of my most treasure vintage finds. I initially thought of pulling a Miley & wearing it as a dress but logic prevailed & it’s now my go to classic black blazer. It’s just heavy enough, perfectly structured, has killer removable white layers, & is just so pretty. Who knew you could sport black & still be dressed for spring? Throw a pattern into the mix & add a statement necklace & you, my friend, are as good as gold. 

While we’re on the topic of favorite fashion finds, have you purchased your super duper inexpensive ticket to the fashion event of the month? For just 10 dollahs, Gilt City DC is hosting their annual warehouse sale. I hit this sucker up last year & scored big time on some huge names in the biz. I owe a few dresses & my favorite pair of motorcycle boots to last year’s sale.

  • Onsite bar sponsored by La Marca Prosecco and also featuring Whitehaven Wine and New Amsterdam Vodka with Vita Coco Coconut Water

    Love the blazer – that contrasting white lapel is so cool & totally on-trend…don’t you love finding vintage pieces like this?!

    And oh my goodness….that warehouse sale sounds amazing (& dangerous) – can’t wait to see what you score! :)
