I ran across this gorgeous ivory blazer from Ann Taylor when I was recently pulling together my spring and summer workwear capsule. Being the blazer fan-girl I am (and I don’t just mean the Portland basketball kind) I had to try it. Turns out it was worth the try! Wowza. I love it!
Also featured in this post are…hold onto your hats…full-length jeans. I know I donned them in a little preview video the other day, but here they are styled up in a full-fledged outfit moment.
I’m Obsessed With This Ivory Cropped Double-Breasted Blazer
OK, back to the cropped double-breasted blazer…more on the jeans later. How cute and slightly-’80s-vibe, and fresh and summery and chic is this cropped blazer? I’m excited to style it up additional ways, but I am adoring this lewk so much. The blazer fits true to size; I’m wearing a 6 here. It’s made of a linen blend fabric and the perfect summery springy weight to jazz up any tee and jeans.
And speaking of jeans, these are my first foray into full-length denim again and…I love them in this outfit. The jury is still out as to whether I love them with all shoes. It’s taking some getting used to.
These are the MOTHER Rider Skimp jeans and per usual they are selling out in this wash…wearing a 28 here. One could be so inclined to swap out for the beloved MOTHER The Tomcat jeans since I do approve of them with heels. (You might remember that I don’t love them with sandals and lower profile sneakers.) I’ve linked to some other washes in this Rider Skimp fit below, too, though.
Shop More Cute Cropped Blazers
There aren’t a ton of options exactly like my cropped blazer from Ann Taylor, but there are some cute finds with different details and in different colors. Ooh and Banana Republic Outlet has this adorable black double-breasted option, too (wouldn’t work in the widget below.)
Shop MOTHER The Rider Skimp Jeans
Hop on the wash ‘The Confession’ if you like the exact pair I have on, and I’ll be sure to keep my eye out for restocks in more sizes. These kinds of things literally sell like hotcakes before we can even get them photographed. Whew. Otherwise, there are some cute non-distressed washes available!
Here’s to fun new outfit combos that make me feel a little bit like Carrie Bradshaw. “When one door closes, a shoebox opens.”
