It’s the final piece of the puzzle! Sorry it took so long to post the whole thing. If you switch the jeans for the skirt, this is what I wore to a recent conference, but, to tell you the truth, I kind of hate suits. I think it’s some sort of deep-seated Ann Taylor/J. Crew/interview-related association I have with them. But in beige, it is only a muted form of evil, so I can stomach it. Anyway, long story short, I like this blazer with jeans.

I have had this wonderful brooch sitting in my jewelry box for much too long. I found it at a flea market way back in the springtime. No excuses for not wearing it sooner.

PS Thank you so much Tasha for the award! I’m sorry I didn’t get my act together to do 10 things today :-/

Oh I hate suits also! So formal, that's why I want a job that does not require any type of formal attire. But I do want a blazer. I love how they look with jeans and shorts.

'a muted form of evil' Ahh you crack me up!!!!

I do really love the blazer, as I often tend to love all blazers, though I'm not really a suit person. I generally don't like to be head to toe in the same color…

Mmmm beige and denim… I'm also loving the fact that all buttons on your shirt are, in fact, buttoned. Supreme!

I love this blazer with jeans. It looks great. Really nice color. I like it so much better here than I think that I would as a suit.
Plus, that brooch is amazing. I love the bit of color that it adds.

Love this look. I just recently posted a work outfit that had one part suit one part skinny pants, but mine was all in one color. I love the light color of the blazer with the rich color of the jeans. Those shoes are fantastic as well as the broach.

Reply

The brooch defiantly adds whimsy to the blazer, but I'm a shoe girl at heart and those shoes make the ensemble. I LOVE them!

Reply

Gorgeous blazer, and that brooch is stunning!

I love that broach! It makes the outfit. This is such a classy outfit.

Great outfit, E! The blazer looks perfect on you and I love the brooch. Too cute!

Reply

This looks simply well put together.
You look comfortable and like you could take the world!
Have a good weekend.

yes, if the suit came in pinstripes or navy blue, it would definitely have looked like an interview outfit…but the beige linen just made it sooo chic and laidback! love it!
