Mix It Up

A few fall seasons ago I came across this amazing blue blazer from J. Crew and I knew I just had to have it. The ironic thing was that I didn't even wear blazers that often, I just knew it was a piece I needed in my closet.
 
The blazer cost me a pretty penny, especially on my recent-college-graduate budget, but I knew it was a staple I'd be able to wear for a long time. I've found that it's the perfect piece to mix and match with less expensive items to create a polished look.
 
I paired it here with an inexpensive flannel shirt, my favorite fall boots, and a statement necklace to add a feminine touch. The perfect business casual look for a fall day.
If you're petite like me, you need these boots. I've tried a lot of different riding boots but none worked for me because they were too tall. These seem to be a perfect length.

I have 3 amazing blazers that I scored at Target for $30 each! Blue/hunter green plaid, fuschia, and camel. They all have a fun coordinating color on the inside collar when you pop it. Love the plaid shirt with the classic navy!
