The White Blazer


Most of the time, my weekend formula = tee + jeans. This is a great go-to combo when you’re in a rush (which I always am). To make the jeans and tee combo less boring, I like to add a blazer or a statement necklace to spruce up a rather plain outfit. This formula is easy to create but yet put together for the weekend.

 

What I am wearing:
Blazer: Banana Republic blazer - size 00P
Tee: Target (buy one get one 50% off all shoes & bags)
Jeans: Mavi Serena skinny jeans
Shoes: Express two-strap heeled sandals
Sunglasses: Kate Spade Avaline
Lipstick: Revlon Primrose
Watch: Michael Kors runway 5128

 

I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect boyfriend white blazer for many summers now and finally found one. Stumped upon this beauty on sale in a recent trip to the mall and I am in love. Fabric composed of 98% cotton and 2% elastane. Even though the item description said “sateen”, it does not have the shiny look and slippery feel whatsoever. Please note this blazer has the bracelet sleeve length which I am usually not a fan of. However, it’s not a huge deal since I roll my sleeves up most of the time. Measurements are as follow (laying flat): Shoulder to shoulder = 14", body length = 23", sleeve length = 19.5". It has a center back vent, one-button closer and is fully lined. This blazer is truly the perfect piece for layering. Glad the hunt is finally over =)

  1. We must be on the same wavelength today!! :) I was also on the hunt for a white blazer for the longest time - I don't understand why it was so difficult!. It's actually perfect that you rolled up the sleeves for a more relaxed and casual chic look - love it! I know you weren't feeling well but hope you got some R&R!

  5. Hope you're feeling better Sydney! I thought I had found a white blazer, until the wrinkles started to show on the linen, so I'm in hunt for a replacement for next Spring. On a side note, may I ask what lip color you're using?

  12. One of my favourite posts! Love the casual, chic head to toe look. I've been searching all over for a v-neck shirt like this - too bad I probably wont be able to find it at the Target locations in Toronto :(
