The plaid shirt. It’s my favorite fall and winter item! I keep telling myself enough with the plaid, but there are so many great plaids out there! And in the colder months, I do love layering them under a cozy sweater. One thing I love about this Banana Republic shirt is the reversed print on the inside. It’s a great navy gingham. And let’s not forget to mention how soft it is! Pretty much like wearing a pajama shirt 🙂 (And it’s on sale – even bettaaaahhhh!)

I was on the hunt for some great (and comfortable) brown ankle booties. Do you know where I found these? The Aerosoles outlet store! I thought Aerosoles were kind of “old lady” shoes for their comfort factor, but they had some very cute styles! I have become a fan…and I got a TON of compliments on them when I wore them to work.

Another great find at J. Crew Factory was this jeweled necklace. It goes with literally everything. And what a bargain getting it half off for around $25.

Dressing Up Jeans with a Blazer

So…I used to wear blazers all the time when I had to dress in business attire at a former job. After I had to wear them for 7 years, they got a major break. But I’m not sure why. Blazers are so versatile. You can wear them (obviously) with a suit or just step up a t-shirt and jeans.

Y’all know I heart Ted Baker. And when Haute Look just had it on a few weeks ago, I jumped at getting a few pieces. I scored this great ecru blazer and printed tee. I love the inside lining of the blazer. And the print of this tee. Yeah. I love it. The soft pastel colors are just so freakin’ pretty! I felt so feminine just wearing these pieces.

Thought I would throw on my favorite skinnies and pumps – and voila! Great outfit for work. Gotta love when outfits just come together – especially when I’m rushed to get myself and the kiddos ready for the school and workday. Thank goodness summer break is almost here!!!
