Funny how your tastes change and evolve....I used to prefer cardigans to blazers.  However, these days I seem to be reaching for the blazers more often.  I love the look of a blazer with the cuffs flipped back or the arms pushed up!  and I'm wearing them with everything from skirts to shorts.

How about you...are you a blazer girl or a cardi girl?

    1. Thanks Laura! This was one that I knew that I *needed* from the moment that I layed eyes on it! I love the schoolboy and there's something about the contrast on the tipped jackets that speaks to me!

  2. I'm definitely a fan of blazers. Although I have far more cardigans than blazers, I think they really complete an outfit well. I love this blazer on you! It is a great classic! Jealous :)

  3. I love blazers, but I am a cardi girl. It is just too hot down here most of the time for a blazer. The schoolboy looks awesome on you!

    1. Yes, the warm weather does throw a monkey wrench in layering (blazers or cardigans). I actually had to shed my blazer as the day wore on. Bring on fall! :o)

  4. Such a pretty look. I agree, blazers are great but even the light weight ones for Summer become too hot...but I cannot quite say BRING ON FALL yet :)

  6. I am such a cardi girl, but I always admire blazers on other people. I love that tipped one on you- I'll bet it is very versatile.
