Fall Wish-list Item # 7: Rust colored blazer

Pin It
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!



You styled this so nicely!! I love your idea to keep everything else neutral!

I love all the trees/leaves in the pics!!

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!


I love the lace tee! Everything goes together so well. :)


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 : )


Love this look! So cute and perfect for Fall!

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 :(


i want a blazer in this color too. you dressed it up really nicely with that delicate lace top.



I love the way you styled this with the shorts and booties!! I think this is one of my fave outfits from you this season :)

I have a similar rust blazer from gap but it has a tie lapel ( and I've been wondering what to wear with it so thanks for featuring this look!

easy petite looks

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


I love how you styled this piece and I love your boots :)

The blazer is so pretty! Great styling. : ) Can't believe you're still rocking shorts this season!


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 :)


The color of the blazer is so pretty! especially with the lace top


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 =)?


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.


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 :-)


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!


Thank you so much for your sweet comments! I have a slight blazer obsession! You wore this perfectly! beautiful photos!


Really nice blazer! I just realized I have nothing in this color in my closet. I guess time to go shopping!
