Blazers- not just for suits anymore!

Hey lovebugs! Happy Thursday to you!  I hope you had a wonderful week and are planning an even better weekend.

I wanted to ask if you might be interested in sharing some of your holiday traditions with me for Friday Foodday.  I would just love to include them tomorrow and over the next couple of weeks.  Recipes, stories, outfit ideas, outfit flops, whatever comes to mind please just send it on in!

Today we're going to talk about blazers.  If you watch TLC's What Not to Wear, Clinton and Stacy are obsessed with blazers and jackets and for good reason! They complete any outfit and add another layer for a transitional climate.  Blazers are truly as versatile as accessories.  You can pair them with jeans, LBDs, work wear, you name it.  Here are some of my picks:

I'm obsessed with this single button blazer. It's so soft but with the chain detailing projects a rocker edge.  

Bloomingdales, vintage havana knit-fleece lined blazer, $75
I like the relaxed feel of this blazer with the dropped breast pocked and slouchy feel. And the color is very understated so I would pair it would something feminine like a dress.

Forever 21, allover sequin blazer, $25
If you haven't noticed sequins are rocking this season.  Let them play off a traditionally professional piece like this blazer and party like it's 2011.

Modcloth, Lace in the morning blazer, $85
The other trend is lace. In any color.  Look a this sweet blazer- I like it with a chunky turtleneck now and with a colorful sun dress later.

Ann Taylor, Deluxe velvet blazer, $89
I've saved my favorite for last.  There is so much awesome going on in this piece I can't even stand it.  Double button to lock-and-load the girls, full length sleeves, darting at the slimmest part of the waist, perfect waist crop, slit side pockets, in a glorious chocolate fudgey brown velvet.
