A Staple Piece

Blazer J. Crew, Jumper c/o BCBGeneration, Booties ASOS (from last summer, similar style here), Necklaces c/o Stella & Dot (here and here), Bag Tory Burch

One of the most frequent questions I get asked is, "What are the
staple items in your wardrobe?" While this can vary throughout each season,
one thing that remains constant is a good blazer.
The great thing about a blazer is that you can throw it over practically anything
and instantly make it look more polished. Take, for example, this summer romper. 
The back is completely open (which I love!), it's short and has a floral pattern.
When I put my navy blazer over it, it turns from a bohemian laid-back look to one more 
suited for work/meetings/everyday/etc. 
Happy Friday Everyone!

Marisa said...

I agree that a good blazer is a wardrobe staple, especially one in navy because it's a great alternative to black. Your romper is incredibly cute, I hope you do another outfit post without the blazer so that we can see the open back!
