It’s kind of funny I’m writing today’s post because it wasn’t too long ago that I purged a handful of blazers during a closet purge. Looks like I spoke too soon though as the checkered blazer is the must have item of the season. If you start scrolling on Pinterest or Instagram you’re bound to see a blogger babe or two rocking the checkered blazer!
When I worked for J.Crew, blazers were a style staple and I would wear different colours and prints almost every other day. But now that I work for myself, dressing up to write blog posts isn’t exactly necessary. So instead of looking at blazers as a work staple I am taking a more casual approach to styling them and not going to lie, I kinda love it!
Instead of pairing this H&M checkered blazer with a blouse or collared shirt I decided a plain white tee would help keep things casual. I also wanted to edge it up a bit with a faux leather skirt and these amazing buckle booties from Le Château!
