I sometimes have a hard time wearing blazers because I feel like they make me look so professional, but wearing it with a pair of distressed boyfriend jeans perfectly compliments and casualizes it (I made that word up just now). Plus, you all know how much I love pattern mixing AND stripes, so combining the two pretty much blew my mind. Clearly I’m not hard to please. 
Next week on my blog and Babble I’ll be posting all about my Handmade Christmas! Lots of easy and fabulous last minute DIY gifts, plus a few fun giveaways…it’s going to be a fantastic week — don’t miss it!

    J Crew or Anthropologie should be hiring you as a stylist! Your outfits are WAY MORE FUN and INTERESTING and FLATTERING than most of what they show.

    Love the stripe with stripe..didn't think I would, but I really do. I hear you about blazers looking too professional. I solved that a week and a half ago by finding a solid dark gray open ponte blazer–for some reason no buttons=more casual for me. I am loving pairing with graphic tops & jeans.

  11. I think wearing a blazer dresses up an everyday t-shirt and jeans. The double stripes are fab!
