I don’t know where the inspiration for this outfit came from (probably a mix of Pinterest and the super stylish bloggers I follow), but I LOVE this look! I think a large part of why I love it is because the skirt is one I would have only considered wearing in the summer, but with some layering/different accessories, it transitions into another season seamlessly! (I found that to be true of a tank top I recently wore as well!)
Sarah of Simply Sarah touches upon this too, she just started a series of recycling outfits and changing them up so they can be worn in multiple seasons. I can’t wait to see how her 30 day recycling project turns out!

I’m really starting to like this blazer look- adding it to a summer dress or with jeans really dresses an outfit up! The only blazer I currently own is black, but a colored blazer is definitely an item on my “must have” list for 2013! I want something affordable, but also of a decent quality. Where do you shop for blazers?
The sweater is one I recently purchased on my haul to J.Crew Factory. I went to wash it in the delicate cycle and put it on low heat in the dryer (like I’ve done with other sweaters) but it shrunk. Boo. Then I checked the tag…dry clean only. Dangit! Luckily, it still fits but the torso is quite a bit shorter now…don’t you hate when that happens?! Lesson learned: read the tags and hand wash/air dry those delicate sweaters! Grrr…still mad about that- hopefully I can still get some wear out of it!
