Yellow Blazer: Five Ways

This weekend was my best friend's bachelorette party. Friday night, we went out to dinner at my favorite place (P.F. Changs). The restaurant was Julie's choice, but I benefited for sure! We then took a trip to a huuuuuuge Target, went back to the hotel, watched What to Expect When You're Expecting ( Elizabeth Banks), and played Quelf (which looks like another, more inappropriate word if your eyesight isn't fantastic.) On Saturday, we spent the day shopping, and everyone lovingly referred to me as P.S. (personal shopper). Seriously, guys, that would be a fun side job. 
I was in my zone.

The weather must have known I needed another day to recuperate because I got a snow day today! 
Anyway, the snow day also provided me the opportunity to join Fran's 5 Days, 5 Ways challenge this week. 

The run-down looks like this:

I decided to style my new yellow blazer five ways. After all, I wore it this weekend and loved it. 
I wanted to inspire myself to wear it other ways.

Here's how I wore it this weekend:
Paired with: tan sweater, white jeans, leopard shoes, and polka dot scarf
(By the way, the look did not look pulled together until I put on a belt.)


Anyway, check out the other ways I styled it this morning.
(I chopped off my head because putting on make up or brushing my hair for these pictures was not a priority of mine.)

Since I wanted to prevent this post from becoming too enormous, I put all of the outfits into one image. Feel free to pin it. (Hover over the top right of the image, and a Pin it button will appear.)

I think the image speaks for itself, but let me tell you how much I LOVE this blazer. I'll be honest: I love all of my blazers, all 40 or so of them. Yeah, I said it. I have approximately 40 blazers, and I wear every single one of them, so, no, you may not take some off of my hands. 

I found this bright, yellow beauty at Nordstrom (online) for 55% off, and I used a gift card. Woo hoo :) It's my first "semi-designer" purchase, Vince Camuto. I understand now why people pay a pretty penny for some articles of clothing. This thing fits like a dream. For the record, my favorite look is probably the one NOT in this collage: the sweater, white jeans, and leopard heels look. 
Which one is your favorite? 

Okay, time for some more grading. I hope you enjoy my blazer in all of its versatile glory. 


  1. Ok. I'm totally jealous of your blazer collection! This yellow is great and I'm surprised at its versatility. I seriously think I need to set aside Aprils budget for just cute spring blazers. :)

    1. I'm glad this post could make a case for the colored blazer :) Blazers are BY FAR my favorite article of clothing to wear and buy. If you buy one in April, I'll have to make sure I pop over to see it!

  2. My yellow blazer is one of my absolute items to style in my closet. I have those same printed crops, you just inspired me to style it with those too! Heather

    1. I'm glad I could provide some inspiration! I love these pants, and I can't wait to actually wear them for real. (The first day I went to wear them, I had a bit of a mishap that involved a split in the seam...awesome.)

  3. I love all of these! I really like the printed cardigan underneath it. That is such a great idea!

    1. By no means is that idea original to me, but I'm glad it's one you can put in your sartorial tool belt now, too ;)

  4. I love Quelf!!!! Best game ever.

    Your blazer is really fun! I only have neutral blazers plus one (safe) teal blazer...the yellow is unexpected and super spunky! I really love the outfit with the black dress :)

  5. I never would have thought of a yellow blazer as versatile, but you have convinced me.

  6. Oh my goodness, this blazer is beautiful! My favorite outfit is definitely the first one with the white jeans. But I also really like the last one, with the black dress. I'm surprised how versatile this yellow blazer is, I should really look into getting some colored blazers!

  7. I love that yellow blazer! So fabulous! I love all the ways you styled it--and now I'm convinced I need a yellow blazer, too. haha! Thanks for joining in on our link-up!

  8. OMG I totally want a yellow blazer now. And that ottoman as well.

    It's the perfect shade of yellow and fits you perfectly! :)

  9. you are so freaking cute it hurts. you look so chic and pulled together for shopping - makes me want to drive to you so we can go shopping together. please say yes.


Feel free to throw some witticisms my way.
