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 =)

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!

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?

You look super cool! What did you do to get that bump on your hair? It really gives the ponytail some oomph!

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 :(

I love the mix between the classy and casual vibe! Amazing sunglasses too.
