It's a Third Thursday Threads: Blazers Kind of Day

Thursday, January 17, 2013

Welcome to Third Thursday Threads! I'm super excited about this month's theme because it focuses around an item I don't wear enough - the blazer. I thought I'd try it over a dress and boots and I was so comfortable! This dress has big ruffly pieces on the shoulders, so a cardigan never works over it - I look lumpy. But with a structured blazer, it covered the ruffles well without giving me upper arm bulk. I am a huge fan.

Dress: LOFT (old, similar), Blazer: Nordstrom (similar),
Scarf: gift, Tights: Hue, Boots: gift
Sorry for the awful photos -
these were taken after a 16-hour work day
and I was totally wiped. 

Cannot wait to see what each of you will be wearing! Here's how to play along:

  1. So cute Bri - I love the dark boots and blazer with the light and airy look of the dress! Perfect way to use a piece all year. The pop of color from the scarf is perfect too, and the best part is that you were comfortable - those are the best outfits!

  2. This looks great! I should remember to throw a blazer on with dresses, too!

  3. Nothin' better than a blazer and thick scarf. I love it!

  4. Thanks so much! I love being able to take a summer dress into winter with tights and a blazer & scarf!

  5. Thanks Andi! I don't do it much but definitely am going to start!

  6. Thanks Kate! I love the pink & maroon together :)

  7. Cute - and such a great way to give a dress a different look! I did a dress & blazer last week for a work meeting that I traveled to, and I thought with boots it was the perfect way to make something not super "work" clothes into a professional but still comfortable outfit...

  8. Thanks Anne!! It is definitely one of my new favorite ways to wear it - so glad you've found it to be awesome too!

  9. Great idea to pair the blazer with a dress! I think the scarf really brings together the look too!

    Today I am also wearing a Blazer over a dress, with boots. We were thinking alike, I guess. Of course I linked up & even gave you a shot-out on Today's Post, on my blog. =)

    Have a Great Weekend and I will stop by again. =)
