What I Wore: Stripes and Shine

I love how a blazer can upgrade a basic weekend look of tee shirt and jeans. When I went to Talbots Annapolis Towne Center to exchange my jeans, I tried on this blazer, which I featured in this post. Just as I thought, while this blazer can look boardroom-ready with a crisp white shirt and trousers, it looks just at home dressed down. I think it would look fantastic come winter with a turtleneck sweater.  Thank you Talbots Annapolis for the gift, it's always a pleasure to shop with you!

I bought these oxfords a couple years ago (last worn here) and while they don't get regular wear, they often are just the thing I need to complete a look (and it doesn't hurt that they're pretty comfy!). It's funny, whenever I wear them men are the ones to compliment me on my choice of footwear!

    Love the blazer – I’m a total blazer fan! And I have some very similar shoes – you have such good taste 😉

    Love this outfit! Just ordered some brogues and had to return because they didn’t fit. May rethink and find silver ones. 🙂

      I found Bass runs a bit wide, which is what I need. This exact style is discontinued but they have a bunch of other cute ones!

    That’s a good way to work your graphic t-shirt into an outfit.

      Thanks! I’ve been trying to find ways to make them work well into outfits, the blazers really help them not look so schlubby!

      I wore them this weekend and a guy asked me my size, he wanted to buy them off me but they were too small!

        Crack me up!!! But what a compliment. I do feel sorry for guys…they have such a limited and boring selection of shoes!!
