Frequent Flyer: The Boyfriend Blazer

October 5, 2011

I’m particularly loving this frequent flyer series for two reasons. One – it proves that I don’t have an unlimited wardrobe, which some people claim when seeing my blog. Two – it forces me to think more critically about my closet items and to be more creative with pairings. To me, this is what outfit of the day blogging is all about – showing versatility in your clothing while staying budget minded. (Or at least that is what it is about for me.)

This boyfriend blazer was something I picked up from Target nearly two years ago. I wasn’t sure I’d find anything to wear with it and I wasn’t sure the trend even worked for me and my style of dress. But I gave it a go and have found numerous ways to wear it since then.

    I’m on such a blazer kick lately – I own something very similar to this (from H&M) and I get a ton of wear out of it!

    Love the boyfriend blazer. Especially your pairings with the metallic animal print skirt and with the jeans and scarf. So versatile!

      I think the mettalic skirt pairing is my personal favorite too. It was just one of those outfits that came together randomly and was a total score.

    I LOVE your frequent flyer series. It is great to see all the ways you’ve used your closet. Boyfriend blazers are so perfect for fall too!

    I’m such a blazer/jacket fanatic! Really great that you’re working the blazer so differently in your looks. *That zebra skirt is so fabulous!

      Blazers and jackets are so my thing too. My whole fall wardrobe is based around a bunch of jackets. It’s my standard go-to look.

    I’ve always been obsessed with finding cropped blazers and afraid to wear anything below the waist. You’ve inspired me to try a longer blazer! looks great in all those outfits!

      Oh Mae, you’ve got to give it a try. The jacket is really a great fit on so many people.

    LOVING it – especially in the last two photos… it looks outstanding with that sparkle skirt and I love the popped collar in the last photo.

      The boyfriend blazer is pretty classic and it is so perfect on every age and most body types too. Love it.

    Very nice boyfriend blazer! I’m still looking for a blazer… Too picky I guess! I really enjoy frequent flyer type posts/when a blogger collages all the ways they’ve worn something. It’s near how different a piece can look depending on what you pair it with!
