4 Ways to Wear: Tipped Blazer


 
I am so excited to be participating in a week-long blogger styling challenge for Wallis Fashion.  They sent me this cute navy blazer and asked me to show 4 different ways that I would style it.  This was perfect timing, since I'm long-overdue for a 4WTW post and I've really been wanting to start doing them again.  I decided to feature 2 casual looks & 2 dressed up options that would be work-appropriate.  Take a peek at them all below & let me know in the comments which is your favorite (mine is the last)!

I love the work-appropriate looks. Blazers are one of my favourite items - so versatile and easy to dress up or down. These looks are so cute!

Since my office is super casual, I'd wear all three options to work. You are correct though, I would definitely pick the last option best. Pink pumps and polka dots!

I love the first the look with the mustard top the most. I think it would of been even cuter with your pink high heel shoes (in the other pic)! Love seeing how you restyle the same item of clothing!
