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

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. :)

Top: Le Tote [got my first month free]
Flats: Payless $20

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?

all new favorites

olive and coral fall outfit
lace and utility jacket
Blouse: Target (30% off) $16 [heresimilar long sleeve]
Pants: The Limited (50% off + $20 off coupon) $20 [here]
Jacket: Old Navy (on sale) $25 [almost exact]
Scarf: Target (clearance + coupon) $3 [super similar]
Booties: Just Fab $20 [super similar]
Total Outfit Cost: $84

With the exception of this scarf, this outfit is compiled of all new pieces to my closet!

 Let's start from the top- Ginny posted an outfit in this absolutely gorgeous lace blouse. I knew right away I had to have it too. I have a lace blouse already, but it's super old and is falling apart (it was from f21 so no surprise), so I was definitely in the market for one. I ordered this one when I ordered these pants and it was another win for Target (no suprise)!

This jacket- I've been eyeing this jacket at Old Navy for a year now! I had gotten some Old Navy super cash and I set a reminder on my phone for the dates that I could use it. I went in to finally buy this jacket, and I get to the register and whatdoyaknow I came in a day too early for my super cash so I couldn't use it. I got lucky though because this jacket was on sale! I don't doubt that it would have cost $35 the next day and I would have paid the same amount for it after the super cash. This way, I got to use my super cash on something else (some clothes for my hubby) and I still got my jacket for a good price! Win-win.

These pants- or should I say legging pants. They're perfect. They have the comfort of leggings, but they're pants. Need I say more? They were 50% off online and then I had got a $20 off coupon in the mail from The Limited so I got them for just $20!

Lastly, these booties. I recently signed up for Just Fab again since I'm in need of some new boots. I originally ordered a pair of black and a pair cognac riding boots. They came in and both looked super cheap so I sent them back. Then I got these booties and a different pair of boots (that I again didn't love) and the booties were a keeper!
