Foolproof

1_2e

Blazer: Zara (similar) | Striped Tee: Rag & Bone | Jeans: Rich & Skinny  | Shoes: Jimmy Choo | Handbag: Balenciaga Papier 

When in doubt, a pair of jeans, a striped tee and a slightly oversized blazer always does the trick! I find this combination to be a foolproof look that can be worn with your favorite flats, booties and of course, heels. Whatever floats your boat! Oh, and today is the last day of the Shopbop 25% off sale. It's possible I have checked out with more than one shopping cart (oops!) I stocked up on some summer essentials, like this fun clutch and tee.

PS: Wishing my dad a very happy birthday today! I know he doesn't go a day without reading my blog,  which is the sweetest. Love you, papa! '

  19. I love how loose cut this blazer is. I really like blazers, but I will admit I rarely wear any of mine because they feel so restrictive.

  43. Totally agree with you, Helena! And this is simple yet chic look! Funny, that I post a similar outfit just yesterday and wrote/wore about jeans, stripes, oversized coat, red color, heels. What can I say? It must really foolproof and a combo that always works. :)

  47. That's so cute that your dad reads you blog! As a kid when my mom took me shopping, my dad never came but when we got home I would immediately do a fashion show for my dad. He always acted interested but I'm sure he wasn't! haha :)

  49. Perfect go-to outfit! I love that this blazer appears double breasted, but doesn't have the extra fabric, so it drapes nicely open.
