Which is CRAZY!
Because basically we’ll turn around and it will be November 2nd. Which means I’ll be panicking because I haven’t bought even 1 Christmas present yet.
Yeah. Welcome to my mind. Welcome to crazy town.
It’s April 2nd, and I somehow just managed to have a mild panic attack about Christmas.
As always, I am partnering up with Shay at Mix and Match Family and Mel at The Larson Lingo and hoping that all of you will join in the fun!
If you’ve been following this blog
for awhile, you will remember that last year I found and fell in love
with a neutral colored blazer (it sold out quickly, so lots of you
missed out on it). Boo!

Isn’t it great?
I absolutely LOVE the look!
wore it sooooo much last year. Pretty much anytime I was going to be
going somewhere that the people there hadn’t already seen me in this
outfit, I wore it.
I felt the outfit needed as much exposure as possible. 🙂
even after we are nearing the 2 year anniversary of the blog, it still
definitely remains in my TOP 3 FAVORITE outfit recreations.
Want to get the above look for yourself?
I don’t blame you.
This time I put together a collage and source list for you!
EVEN THE COLLAGE LOOKS SHARP AND POLISHED. 🙂
girl Pinterest convinced me that it was! Pinterest is
just about as bossy as I am.
Do you need more convincing that you too in fact need a neutral blazer?
Well, here you go.
|SO sorry, but I made this collage over a year ago for my first neutral blazer post, before I knew how important it was to include image sources.
There are only 5 reviews on this blazer, but all 5 reviews are 5 STAR.
Here’s one of them:
have tried on several other blazers (Halogen, Anne Klein, Jones NY,
etc) and none of them have held a candle to this style. I love that it
has a structured professional look but not so much that I can’t wear it
out for cocktails with a pair of jeans. The fit is true to size. Loving
the attention to detail on the insides of the sleeves.
market for a new blazer I definitely recommend trying this one on.
a different review talks about how cute the striped lining is on the
sleeve and how it looks great with the sleeve is rolled up. Love it.
Not great. But okay. A little Miami Vice-ish if you know what I mean. 🙂
So, I’ve been on a hunt for the perfect white pair of jeans.
AND I’M TELLING YOU, I MIGHT AS WELL HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR A UNICORN.
BECAUSE GREAT WHITE JEANS ARE HARD TO FIND.
After trying on probably close to 25 pairs of white jeans (over several different days), I did find 3 pair that I thought were worth sharing. Those white jeans will be on the blog next week!
having you in my and life, but rest assured that I’ve now seen the
error of my ways and I am going to make up for lost time.
fyi: I want to be that girl carrying the striped tote and the pink
flowers. But if I were her, I would most likely take off that hat.)
I found a New to Nordstrom blazer option that is by the same maker of my actual
oatmeal colored blazer (in the pics above) and it’s 1/2 the price of the one I highlighted above!
I couldn’t get the picture of the oatmeal blazer to save, but here is the same blazer in the pink.
And can we all agree that it is precious in pink too? Love how it’s styled in the picture below.
The reviews on this one aren’t great, but at almost 1/2 the price I thought it was worth a mention.
I feel like this jacket runs on the small side, and I have a medium.
So because of the poor reviews, I knew I needed to get myself to Nordstrom to try them on for all of you ladies. It definitely runs small (and there are small shoulder pads in the blazer), but I still think the overall fit is very cute. Don’t y’all?
LOTS of good news in the VIGOSS (maker of the MUST HAVE jeans) world today!
Click HERE for their long cut off shorts.
These are a great alternative for those of you that want a cool pair of cut-offs, but don’t like short shorts! Love the distressing.
And check THESE out. As soon as they went 40% off, I scooped them up!
The embroidery on the side kept me from paying full price because I knew I wouldn’t wear them as frequently as the “plain” ones, but at $38 there were no more excuses!
I got them in the mail just last night and put them on after the little guy and I got home from soccer practice. Which explains my crazy hair, lack of make-up, no shoes, and overall general lovely appearance. 😉
And when searching for the links for the above Vigoss products, I saw that THESE are newly available (thanks to a reader hint from Anna P. telling me to check them out!).
They look like they are the EXACT fit of the original MUST HAVE, they are just a super dark denim. And I LOVE a super dark denim. I think dark denim like this is great for day wear, but it’s also perfection for wearing at night. It’s just all in how you style them!
If you have the original MUST HAVES and would like to add the dark version, click HERE.
If you missed out on the original MUST HAVES and have always felt left out, get the dark version by clicking HERE. Welcome to our MUST HAVE jeans club. 🙂
Now scroll back up and look at the picture of the blogger (who looks like Cindi Crawford) in her dark denim, dark tank, and neutral blazer. PERFECT for a night on the town!
Now it’s your turn to link up!
I can’t wait to check out how all of you girls were Pin-spired!
