As some of you may have noticed already every time I have a meeting I wear a white or black blazer. I must say, blazers are not my favorite items to wear, I actually only own three. I prefer other types of jackets a little more instead. Like motto jackets, or collar less type such as bomber, and I also prefer a jacket with lots details like embroidery and extra zippers. Actually, before becoming a blogger my blazers spent their days in the back of my closet, only to come out once or twice a year when I had a presentation to do at school. But, now I’m having to keep them at the very front of my closet and on close rotation since I’m finding myself reaching out to them more and more often.

My blazers have now become the finishing touch to my daily #OOTD’s. “Casual workwear” is what I like to call it. I think it’s important to add a bit of a formal flare to any meeting, even if it’s for an informal get together. I really like to mix pretty details, like the floral print from my Ted Baker top with denim that is slightly destroyed. This gives the look a great contrast between ladylike details to a more relaxed and casual feel. And rather than a black briefcase I like to use a tan ModCloth tote to carry my laptop in. The touch of formality from the blazer really ties the entire look together and makes it look complete.
