Blush Blazer & Bold Lips

Nothing makes you feel more powerful than a really good blazer.  

The blazer has been a staple of the business world for years, but we've seen it evolve and change over time and now we're finding it in the closets of every fashionable woman who wants to make a statement. It's the perfect item to change your look from being casual to powerhouse chic.

Now, there's a lot of different styles of blazers–from cropped, to oversized boyfriend, double breasted, and even capes. There's even an endless selection of materials to choose from these days. You can get anything from a metallic blazer, to velvet, satin, wool...I mean, the options are really endless. On top of picking the type and material you're looking for in a blazer, the best part is how you style it. There's really no limit. You can wear your blazer with jeans, leggings, dresses, skirts and anything else you can think of. It's the one staple that everyone needs in their closet that can help spice up any outfit you have. 

I recently purchased a blazer from Topshop and it wasn't until I received it in the mail that I realized I've been missing out on. From the moment I put it on I felt in charge and felt like I could accomplish anything. I noticed a change in the way I carried myself. I was poised, alert and definitely strutting my way through San Francisco feeling like I could accomplish anything. Who knew one little piece could change so much about the way you look and feel. I know I'll definitely be purchasing more blazers for my closet in the coming months! 

I got the Topshop Satin Trim Slouch Blazer  from Nordstrom in blush pink. To style my blazer I knew I wanted to look very feminine but I wanted the blazer to standout. So I naturally opted for all black, wearing a simple Forever 21 dress with over the knee boots from Zara. For my accessories I wore a light cream Marc by Marc Jacobs crossbody bag with gold accents. To bring out the blush pink tones in my blazer I wore a statement necklace from J. Crew that had jewels the same color of the blazer as well as some light blues and purples that brought the entire look together. 

Who knew all you needed in life was a blush pink blazer and bold lip to showcase to the world how powerful and in charge you feel?!
