Happy Friday, friends! Over the summer, I shared two work looks. That seemed to resonate so I thought I’d create another one for fall. When Brooks Brothers asked me to style one of their non-iron shirts for their magazine, I knew this would be the perfect time for it. I don’t do a lot of office inspiration now that I’m not in one every day but I plan to make this a seasonal thing.
Blazers are kind of my thing. I love the way they look, the way they can be worn inside as a part of your outfit and outside as a part of your outerwear, and I love the way they keep me warm in these transitional months. This fall, a ton of plaid blazers are popping up, and I’m just loving them.
The one in this post is a great, thick wool option that will be perfect for the holidays. I also picked up this one for a great price and saw this houndstooth version for under $30. I can’t speak to the quality of that last one, as I haven’t seen it in person.
I adore this double-breasted jacket and if I had $500 to spend on a blazer, you better believe I would be dropping it on this one. My favorite of the bunch, however, is this Helene Berman blazer that happens to be on sale right now! There are still a few sizes left.
I paired mine with flats and simple black pants. I’ve talked about these pants before because they’re a perma-hit in my life (last seen here and here). This season I picked them up in navy too. They are leggings but have a button and pockets so look like tailored pants (kind of). Honestly, they’re the most comfortable pants I own if you don’t count yoga pants, and I’m not throwing around that superlative lightly.
I used to wear them to the office with flats, boots, booties, or even heels for important meetings. Most often, I pair them with this tunic, which I have in five colors. That’s kind of my fall go-to. Not exciting, but always looks good and feels comfy.
Anyway, enough about work outfits and plaid blazers. Let’s all have a great weekend, shall we?
