girls best friend

It is essential in every woman's wardrobe to include a fitted blazer. Don't get me wrong, obviously I think boyfriend blazers are great, but there is just something about a men's-wear piece tailored for a woman's figure.

I pulled mine out of hiding to create a versatile outfit. I had an important meeting that I needed to look professional for, but directly after I was meeting friends for drinks at a local dive bar and there was no time to change. Not to look under or over dressed for both occasions... I plotted my ensemble plan.









LOVELOVE the back pleats of the blazer... that along with the brass button hardware sold me.








So I took off the blazer, added my favorite trucker hat, and I went from chic to casual, just what I was looking to do. Simple enough right? The choice of accessories and shoes helped to spice up a plain white V-neck. Buttttt... I'll be honest - the hat didn't stay on for too long. I was having a good hair day!

Blazer: Bebe
VNeck: H&M
Jeans: True Religion
Shoes : Dolce Vita "April"
Hat: Faith Connexion
Rosary and Panther Ring: F21
Sunnies : Ray Ban

PS - Thought it was funny when I got an email from a reader commenting on my rosary and how "Jersey" I am. I am not a guidette nor do I live at the South Jerz shore, but taken as a compliment ;)

Love your shoes :)
was actually rocking my TR jeans this weekend too.

I'd say the JS platforms are between 4.5" tall or even 4 and 3-quarters. But surprisingly easily to walk in (just not down step walkways or gravel) ;)
