Fall and blazers go together like peanut butter and jelly. They’re the perfect layer on a crisp autumn morning when it’s too cool for a cardigan and not quite cool enough for a jacket.
They also possess the power to take your favorite casual Friday look up a notch to casual chic. Try topping off your button down and jeans with a blazer to transform your entire look.
Casual Chic Friday | Fall Style
A tan or camel blazer is an incredibly versatile wardrobe basic that works with so many looks. The rest of this outfit works because the oxford is a lighter shade than the jeans, the leopard belt add just the right amount of interest and the bright flats bring a pop of color to the party. If you’re 100% opposed to blazers then swap it out for a neutral cardigan to take it to a more casual level, yet still look perfectly put together.

Have you ever had to go to back to back events – one casual, the other dressier – with NO time to change in between?
Last week, I had to rush between two overlapping blogger events – a preview of the new Nordstrom Rack in Dallas and a press screening for the Universal Pictures’ film “About Time“. More to come on both soon.
For the Nordstrom Rack event, I wanted to be stylish yet comfortable. One of my blogging assignments was to put together three outfits while I was there – so quick changes in the fitting room were a must.
I started with two comfortable basics – my faux leather leggings and an over-sized cobalt blue sweater – then paired them simply with my leopard flats.

In the car on the way to the press screening, I swapped out my flats for some ankle boots and added a leopard scarf. Instantly dressier.

Lesson learned – there’s no need to do a full outfit change when going between events. Start with a good base then swap out a few accessories in the car and you’re good to go!
