In addition to the giveaway, to celebrate Pinterest Told Me To turning 1,
I’m highlighting my 5 ABSOLUTE FAVORITES over the last 12 months.
Favorite #5 was highlighted yesterday HERE.
FAVORITE #4: Black Blazer
And I LOVE LOVE LOVE how she paired the black blazer with her brown boots!
I was seriously late to the bubble necklace trend, and after wearing it only like twice, I’m pretty much already over it. That’ll teach me. There
are a couple of more outfits I’ve seen on Pinterest with bubble
necklaces that I want to re-create, but then I think I might be done.
You guys. I loved this outfit.

I absolutely LOVED it. And I never ever would have put it together on my own.
Thank you Pinterest!

Do you want to recreate this look for yourself?
Even though all of the above items in my outfit have sold out since my original post date, I have found other similar items that would help you recreate the look for yourself.
First off, some blazer options.
You can click a picture to find the jacket, and you can read about them below the collage.
You can also pin or tweet them by hovering over them!
There is a great option HERE with near perfect reviews and an affordable price tag!
It has ruched sleeves, and the reviews say it would work well year round. I like how it’s fitted.
Check out the skinny lapel blazer HERE.
It has rouched sleeves and is actually a tone on tone paisley fabric, so pay close attention to that.
If you’re looking for a simple black blazer, this isn’t the one for you, but if you are looking for one with a little pazazz, this one would be perfect!
I like THIS Michael kors option too. If you are looking for a more generous fit, this could be your jacket. There is also a petite option of the MK blazer HERE ,
and a plus size option HERE.
Additional plus size options HERE.
I tried THIS one on (see below), and I really liked it.
It is WAY better in person than it looks online. (It looks too dressy online.)
They only had an x-small left in the store, but I could tell I would have loved it
had it been the appropriate size.
This would be a perfect addition to your closet if you wanted to have
a classic blazer that would last you for years. (Remember, mine is 12
years old and I am still wearing it!)
If you got any of the Vigoss MUST HAVE jeans for yourself (HERE, HERE, or HERE),
this jacket would look amazing with the jeans, a t-shirt, and a great necklace.
In the picture above I have on THESE jeans and THIS shirt.
If you notice in my recreation picture, even though I had on a black blazer,
I was wearing brown boots.
I really embraced the black and brown trend last year, and I can’t wait to wear it again this year with lots of different outfits. It’s soooo much more interesting than just pairing black with black.
I even got a new pair of brown wedge boots this year and look forward to mixing them with
black all fall and winter long.
for my new pair of cognac brown wedge boots.
I stare at them in my
closet every morning and can’t wait until fall so I can bust them out. I
promise you that the first day it dips under 70 degrees I’m gonna throw
these babies on.
The wedge is sooooooo comfortable.
I love the height it gives me without the dressier look of an actual heel.
And the detail on the back? Swoon.
And THESE are very similar to mine in the recreation picture.
They have 228 5 Star Reviews, and they are a great cognac color.
Or click HERE for a really unique pair that I’m LOVING.
The cognac color is perfection and the design is so cool!
I posted them on facebook last Saturday and they got lots of attention!
My friend Tammy even posted this:
I have had these boots for a little over a year and ABSOLUTELY LOVE
them!!!! The leather gets more distressed over time making them look
that much more FABULOUS!
So comfy and compliments galore!!!
And you just can’t beat the price!!!!
Or, if you would like some boots similar to the over the knee ones in the inspiration picture,
I got my leggings at a boutique in downtown McKinney, but I think that THESE
are VERY similar to mine. Mine actually feel like leotard
material (yes, I realize how crazy that sounds) than they do denim or
even actual leggings. I love them.
If you aren’t a fan, THESE HUE leggings are a great option, and they have stellar reviews.
I bought a grey pair of HUE leggings last year and absolutely fell in love with them!
Other black blazer outfits that I’ve created over the last 12 months follow:
Do you have a black blazer that you love?
A black blazer is a CLASSIC piece that you will wear for years and years (and years) to come.
So, scroll back up to the middle of the post and find your perfect blazer!
Or maybe a pair of the cognac boots kicked up your fancy?!?
