Spring Ahead in your Current Wardrobe- Blazer Edition
As I sit at the airport on this 70+ degree day Boston on the way to D.C., I completely realize why blazers are such a wardrobe staple. They upgrade an otherwise simple outfit in such a chic way and are perfect for temperature shifts, when you’re unsure of how the weather may change.
My outfit today consists of dark skinny jeans, an oversized tan and black striped tee shirt, a 3/4 sleeve black blazer, and tan Tory Burch flats. Lauren loves blazers too, as seen here, and her color block pick has been on my mind since I first saw it! We all own blazers in different colors and styles, but let’s use this post to highlight the all encompassing wardrobe must-have: the black blazer.
Cher’s tips on how to Spring ahead in blazers
Item 1: Big, Drapey Scarf
There’s something totally cute and pulled together about a simplistic outfit, like jeans and a tee shirt, topped with a blazer and a big drapey scarf. Try it – you’ll feel like an instant celebrity!
Infinity Floral Scarf (Etsy), $19.50
Item 2: Oversized Striped Tee Shirt
Like I said, this is my outfit du jour and I am kind of obsessed with it. Who doesn’t own a cute striped tee shirt, anyway?
Item 3: Cropped Dress Pants
So, this is kind of my version of a suit – mixed and matched pieces in different colors and different fabrics. Brilliant and so French!

Lauren’s tips on how to Spring ahead in blazers
Item 1: Pastel Bib Collar Necklace
Pastels equal Spring. Lilac, baby pink, sea foam green, light yellow, cornflower blue- all scream “SPRING HAS SPRUNG!” Swarovski is my go-to shop when it comes to investment and statement jewelry. How precious is this necklace?
Regency Ribbon Necklace, $450
Item 2: Soft, Ruffle Dress
We love our ruffles, there’s no denying that. Airy and light, this dress would be adorable with your favorite blazer, animal print flats or metallic pumps.

Item 3: Cotton Candy Pink Lips
The right shade of pink can really transcend any piece’s designated “season.” But I adore candy pink lips with a blazer. Office professional with a pop of fun!
