How to Remix Your Everyday Blazers

There are certain items in our wardrobes that we wear on almost a daily basis.  Blazers are an item in my wardrobe that you are likely to see me in during the day and at night.  To keep things interesting I try to remix how I wear my blazers on a daily basis.

Belting your blazers capitalizes on the jacket or wrap sweater trend.  I’ve seen blazers that are specifically made to wrap and tie a belt around the waist to keep it closed.  I love this look because it’s polished, yet fun and chic at the same time.

Wear it Unapologetically

I decided to take one of my favorite black blazers that I thrifted last year and belt it with my wide waist belt from boohoo.com.  I paired it with my distressed black jeans, fun flats, and my Vera Bradley Mini Marlo Crossbody in the Uptown Stripes pattern.  Now, y’all know that Vera Bradley has been coming out with the heat with their newest bags to round out their new vision of their lifestyle brand.  The Mini Marlo Crossbody bag has leather and haircalf accents that make it a great fit for transitioning you from day to night.  You can add the crossbody strap for convenient carrying during the day and remove it for a fab mini satchel by night.

I wore this outfit out to a convention that I was cohosting with some other fabulous local bloggers and it was comfortable yet pulled together.  This would be the perfect outfit for going to brunch or shopping to happy hour to be sure.
