Today I'm so excited to have teamed up with a fabulous fashionista, Tara of Mix and Match Fashion, to shine a spotlight on one of my favorite spring staples ~ the striped blazer. Not only is Tara a fellow NJ native, but she is also a teacher! I've been reading her blog for a while now and I just love the way she pairs colors and prints to brighten even the dreariest NJ winter days. She has also mastered the art of looking stylish on a budget.
This blazer is perfect not only for work, but also adds easy interest to a casual outfit. I tend to think of stripes as a neutral and I love how Tara paired hers with a cute graphic tee, bright pants and an even brighter clutch.
I must have been feeling nautical when I threw mine over this cute navy frock and added some pops of poppy.
We both chose a nude patent pump to complete the look ~ as I always say ~ great minds think alike!
