Mixing Prints - Sensible Stylista

Mixing Prints

Bag:  Kate Spade
Blazer + top:  Forever 21
Shorts:  Mudd via Kohl's
Bracelet:  c/o Brighthouse Baubles
Wedges:  Steve Madden via TJ Maxx
Sunnies:  Marc Jacobs via TJ Maxx

I got really lucky with this blazer at Forever 21 - I (miraculously) managed to buy it while it was on sale. I'm always willing to invest in a quality blazer though.  I always keep an eye out for blazers of varying textures and colors.  They instantly add polish and sophistication, plus they transition beautifully from work to play.  TIP:  Roll up your sleeves to maintain a casual & trendy vibe.

Do you incorporate workwear into casual "everyday" outfits?  If so, how?

  4. Very cute! I seldom incorporate workwear into my everyday wardrobe since I don't have an "office" job and thus, not much "workwear". But I love wearing blazers! They are the perfect layering option.
