Style Perspectives: a blazer and sneakers

Welcome to Wednesday, the official day of fashion on me blog.  Last week we had a hoot styling leggings and scarves, after which I came to the conclusion that scarves just aren't for me. This is why I love this challenge, it is forcing me to evaluate what works on me and what doesn't.



This week is Carrie's look: a blazer, jeans and sneakers.  Up until this post, I had never worn sneakers with a blazer and I don't know why not, it was a super comfy but stylish outfit for an afternoon out with my kids. Actually, truth be told, when I was taking this pictures, I was actually texting with Abbie...you can see my phone hiding in my book.  My phone also controls my camera, so I was multi-tasking.  And also reading on the couch with my shoes on. Tsk, tsk.

  24. I love this whole look, head to toe, this is my fave look this week!! And I love the floral pillow with your blazer, that whole pic is perfect!

    ReplyDelete
  25. OH MY GOSH! Truly, oh my gosh. That yellow blazer is so you in the most creative way. Unique lines, bold color, spirited and fun and polished at the same time. Good heavens, it's great paired with those distressed jeans, the flirty top. And please explain...your phone can serve as a remote for a camera that is not your phone. Whoa, mind-blown. Am I understanding right? All this time I have been searching for a reasonably priced camera with a remote...could it be that my phone could be used as a remote for a camera? Please say yes!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Ok, took another look. Is that just a plain white tee underneath? It looks so soft and feminine. Does it have a rounded shirt tail? You outdid yourself this time, girlfriend.

  32. Look at you getting all fancy and cute taking pictures while reading/texting. I'm also kicking myself for not trying a bit harder to find a pair of shoes like that in Vegas.

  37. YAYAYAY- the floral pillow is my fave, from a Scottish designer, BlueBell Grey- they sell it at the Bay and Simons now.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Definitely agree- blazers take it up a notch.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Aw, yay! THanks for all the love. So my camera connects to the wifi on my phone and I have an app that allows me to control everything on my camera from my phone. Très cool. And yes, just a boring white t underneath that is rounded, good eyes.
