666...Corporate Funk and Back Again

Everybody Everywhere is a very cool blog where is bloggers can show our style and get inspiration from others style.  This week it is all about the classic blazer.  So many ways to style it...I find myself using the blazer to style everything...from casual jeans to corporate chic.  Today I had a meeting at work, so I styled my blazer work chic...



#6 of 30


I had a different outfit picked out for today...but I had a last minute meeting, so I decided to go more business like.  yes this skirt is new, but I bought it before the 30 x 30 started.  I had admired it before at the Gap and when I went in on my lunch hour I notice it was on sale plus 40% off...19.99.  I love the exposed zipper and the fun pattern. Since I wear skirts and dress almost all the time, it had to be mine.  I am not sure if you can tell, but the tank under the blazer is purple with ruffles.  Also, the tights are thick and ribbed...had to stay warm, it is -14 degrees with the windchill here in Chicago
Back to blazers...love this one.  It is cotton, so it is comfy...and it has satin lapels...how fancy!!

Some life changes are in the works for me...I will keep you posted when decision are made!

What a fun skirt. I am amazed that you are out there in a skirt taking pictures. I just want to put some mittens on you!
The ruffles under the blazer are always a great choice. Looks great.

I used to stalk Gap.com like crazy but CLEARLY have been slackin' because this skirt is a brand new sight for me and I am now, naturally, uber jealous! LOVE IT. Zippers are so fun.

The exposed zipper is so cool! All of a sudden I'm seeing a lot of Gap stuff on bloggers that I feel the need to have in my closet. Can't wait until after 30 for 30!

Thanks for the comment and I started cracking up when I read "dumpster chic"...I should have put that as the title!
