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.

J Brand jeans
Pour la Victoire shoes

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

I am in awe of how effortlessly chic you look. The blazer and jeans are a perfect match, and that brooch is just fantastic!

I like so many details in this outfit: the buttoned up collar, the blazer color, the fun brooch. This is a great combination!

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.

pure perfection and the brooch is adorable

'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...

Chic on the Cheap

Damsels said...

your blazer is incredible ... it fits you so well ..too bad you dont like suits because you look insanely good in them ..and that brooch !!! i gasp

Hannah said...

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

Sarah said...

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.

the brooch made me smile, what a piece! pretty damn amazing shoes, too

assonnata said...

I don't know where this association is coming from, but to me you look like a super chic college teacher today:)))

Christina said...

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.

Ebony said...

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!

Audrey Allure said...

Gorgeous blazer, and that brooch is stunning!

Glenda C said...

great blazer

Jenni said...

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

Rachel said...

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

Lorena said...

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

Gizelle Faye | Vanilla Ice Cream said...

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!

Erika said...

I LOVE the look of a blazer with jeans - especially on you! Sadly, whenever I wear blazers, I seriously look like a little kid playing dress-up. :P

Sara Lynn said...

I love the jacket with jeans! I agree, suits bug me a bit, but you look super cute and classic. I also loved your outfit from the previous post!

Marie Z. said...

Yup, the jacket goes nicely with the jeans! Is that your porch? You're so lucky to have one!

Melanie said...

As soon as I even think of you or your blog, I think "chic." This outfit continues reiterate that thought. You look stunning!

Nadine2point0 said...

You have a great blog here - love this look. Sans jeans it could look at bit too formal.
I love your socks and sandals look in your earlier post, and what a cute skirt. Need some plaid for fall.

Pretty Shiny Sparkly said...

I have no words. This outfit is PERFECTION

Keira said...

Oh, this is SO chic! I'm trying to figure out how I can recreate it with things in my closet :)

brooches are amazing accesories to jazz up any outfit! I'm not much of a suit person either, I like how you paired the blazer with jeans.

Such a wonderful, chic look, E. Everything looks just perfect, but I've got a hunch one needs a lovely figure like yours to make it look so good.
