First off, I want to share with you guys my excitement over reaching 1,004 followers!
I wasn't having the best day yesterday, but when I saw that I've reached such a huge milestone here on Blogger, it definitely brought a smile to my face. Thanks to everyone who follow my blog and who always stops by no matter how busy life gets. :D
When I went around to visit blogs the other day, I couldn't help but feel the buzz and excitement over Fall 2011. Even though it's still quite hot here in California, I am definitely looking forward to fall fashion. I was looking through my clothes and I realized that I am lacking one must-have piece: a tailored blazer.
I really really want and need to get one!
While I still have to actually go out there and find one that fits me perfectly, I made three different outfits featuring one blazer. :)
Look #1: Cool for School
I love wearing blazers to school, perhaps because I wore one as part of my high school uniform -- and I always thought it was so cool! What's even cooler now is that I can wear it however I want to wear it. ;)
The first ensemble is a typical outfit I would wear to school now -- stylish, preppy, and comfy.
In my opinion, ballet flats are the perfect shoes to wear when you're spending a long day in school. They are comfortable and cute. A watch is very important because I hate being late! A big bag is a must for books and stuff. I always add a bit of fun to my outfits by incorporating unexpected pops of color like the feather earrings above. :)
Look #2: Casual Cool
The thing I love the most about college is my schedule! Last semester, I only had one class on Fridays. That was my day to wear something I wouldn't normally wear on a full day of school.
This outfit is a "Friday" outfit for me.
I reserve my not-so-comfy shoes for days when I only have one class because I won't be walking around so much. I would use the thin scarf kinda like a necktie, or if you prefer, you can tie it around your bag.
I love how there is still a preppy and collegiate vibe to this look, but it is also perfect for hitting the mall or meeting your friends for lunch after class.
P.S. I really really want lace shorts as well. Thankfully, I can still probably get away with wearing shorts since I live in California. ;)
Look #3: Date Night
So, it's Friday, and some of you are probably gonna go out on a date. I hope you didn't keep your dresses just yet!
I would wear a sweetheart neckline tube dress with a blazer. If it's too cold to bare your legs, my go-to answer would be to wear tights! Always keep black tights handy because they make wearing dresses when it's cold possible. Plus, they go well with either black high-heeled pumps or simple ballet flats.
Since the outfit itself is kinda on the neutral side with black and gold as the two main colors, I think it's always fun to wear colored statement earrings (and carry a statement clutch!). :)
I can think of many other ways to wear a tailored blazer, but this post would be super long if I made one Polyvore for each, haha. ;)
Which of these three looks is your favorite? How would you wear a tailored blazer?
Any outfit tips?
I wish all of you a fabulous weekend!
