A couple months ago Priya and I teamed up to show you our Gap striped dress for summer, and today we're showing y'all how we each styled our dress for fall! I honestly wasn't very prepared this time around, but I knew I couldn't go wrong with my new utility jacket. I finally got this thing a few weeks ago and I can't stop wearing it! I love the way Priya styled it with cognac riding boots, a matching belt, and a cardi. I'll probably be copying her outfit soon!

Posting every day last week made me need a little break from blogging this week.  Being on a computer all day then going home and getting back on my laptop to write a blog post every day can be exhausting! Plus, I was out of town this weekend and then my mom has been visiting this week and helping me decorate my house for Christmas (YAY!) so I haven't had much time to post. I'll be back up and posting next week though! And with a Firmoo review. :) 

Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

It's Fridayyyyy. Ohhh and I can't wait for it to be over! I live for the weekends. I'm sure we all do. This week has been super duper busy at work. I'm hoping that next week people are spending at lot of time with family and they don't think to call us haha. I could use a slow week to catch up on a lot of work.

This blazer has been on the verge of leaving my closet for months now. I've been telling one of my co-workers that I'd give it to her, but I just never brought it. Unfortunately for her, this blazer has now earned it's place back in my closet. I had never thought before to pair my boyfriend blazer with my boyfriend jeans, but I actually really love it!

Now that this week is over, we have to acknowledge the fact that I posted 5 times in 1 week for the first time in probably a year! And that's only happened like maybe 4-5 times. Back to regular (more like irregular) scheduled programming next week guys! Haha :P

Have a great weekend!

Gap Blazer: Goodwill $5
Blouse: Le Tote 
Pants: The Limited (50% off + $20 off coupon) $20
Boots: JC Penney $45
Total Outfit Cost: $70

This isn't the outfit I originally planned out for this blazer. The outfit I planned was my gray fit and flare dress from Traget, a teal scarf, black leggings, and black booties, but when I put the outfit on I just wasn't feeling it. Then, I went outside and took pictures of the outfit and it was even worse than what I thought. I ended up wearing something completely different (you'll see that outfit next week). Then when I got home from work, I knew that I needed a blazer post for today so I decided to give this blazer another try. I already had on these pants, I saw my boots on the floor so I thew those on, then I saw this blouse hanging in my "to wear" part of my closet and wah-lah! I have an outfit! So for once, you are seeing an outfit in real time because this is what I'm wearing today. :)

Blazer: Aeropostale $25
Pants: Gap (clearance) $10
Top: Le Tote [got my first month free]
Flats: Payless $20
Total Outfit Cost: $55

When I first pulled this blouse out of my Le Tote box I was kind of disappointed that they sent me a tank in the fall. I loved the tank though, so I had to find a way to wear it! I love the way it looks with my navy pants. Teal and navy might be a new favorite color combo.

Somehow this blazer has been so neglected in my closet and for no good reason! I'm going to make it a point to wear it more this fall and winter. So how should I style it next?

Yesterday I showed y'all my favorite blazer. Today, I'm showing y'all my least favorite blazer. I keep keeping this blazer because I feel like it's such a good staple piece to have, but I just feel like it's boring and it's missing something. I've had it about a year and a half now and this is probably only the 4th time I've worn it. I originally planned to pair it with a chambray underneath, but when I put it all together, it just wasn't working. I ended up liking the pattern mixing with the stripes and tartan though. Any ideas on how to style this blazer?
