Fall Wish-list Item # 7: Rust colored blazer

I have always loved blazers and always will. Blazers are a classic staple in any women's wardrobe. They can instantly define your look and add sophistication to any ensemble. A year ago, I could count my blazers on one hand and they only existed in the color black and gray. I have been loving colored blazers and itching to wear this Gap blazer that I purchased last month. The weather is getting a bit warmer this week. It’s the perfect time to take it out for a spin. For this outfit, I wanted to highlight the blazer so I kept the rest of the look in neutral shades. I hope you enjoy this outfit. Don't forget to turn your clocks back an hour and enjoy the extra sleep!



What I am wearing:
Blazer: Gap point-lapel blazer - size 0
Lace tee: A&F girl - size L (buy similar)
Short: Club Monaco - size 0 (buy similar - available in 00)
Booties: Steve Madden (buy similar)
Necklace: c/o Stella & Dot
Ring: Forever21 (buy similar)









Have a great week!
Sydney

Love this blazer! I went to Gap hoping to find it in my size after you tweeted about it, but alas, they were all gone. I love it on you and love how you styled it with the lace tee and shorts!

Out of all your finds this year I think that blazer is my all-time favorite, especially for the price you got it at. Rust is a beautiful color on you and almost works as a neutral for Fall. Were these pics taken recently? I went out today in 4 layers...can't imagine being able to rock shorts : )

This was definitely a blazer month for me as I bought 4 new ones.... The rust coloured blazer looks fantastic on you, so jealous you can still wear shorts... It is coat season in the windy city :(

this is such a beautiful rust color!! I could see it actually being an all-season color. it works perfectly with the lace, too :)

Love the top you chose to pair with it...I don't think I ever saw that blazer in store, but it is a gorgeous color :)

I love the color of that blazer -have a similar one also from Gap but in a different cut. Please enjoy the great weather over in Sydney for us - as we are bracing ourselves for what could be a bitter winter, here in the US!

@PetiteAsianGirl These pictures were taken recently. The weather was warm enough for shorts. Although, I am sure it won’t last long.

@SewPetiteGal I am curious to see how you style your blazer. Post is coming soon =)?

JJ said...

That blazer fits you so well! I'm jealous...I'd love to add some colored blazers to my own wardrobe (because you're right, they instantly class up any outfit) but I can never seem to find ones that fit properly.

Unknown said...

Gorgeous!! Love your top! Hope I can find something similar. Not sure if you heard about the GAP promo of spend $100 and get $40 back! Perfect time to shop :-)

Ping said...

love the color of this blazer on you. it's a nice soft rusty color which i really like! you know what funny is that last week, it was 70ish in SF, now it's winter time. it went from short weather to bundling up weather!

Audrey B said...
