A great fitting blazer is an absolute must have in my opinion! It’s so versatile, and a classic piece you will have for years! You can dress it up or down and wear it day or night! I love it paired with some burgundy skinnies (a big trend for Fall), a rocker tee and pointy to pump for a girls night out. For a more casual daytime look, you can throw it on with a pair of boyfriend jeans, a striped v-neck tee, and some cat eye sunnies.

I know we all have tons of maxi dresses we’re ready to put away until next summer but a blazer is also a great way to transition those maxi dresses into fall If you want to be a little more bold, you can also rock a white blazer with some faux leather pants. You will definitely stand out in this rocker chic look!

I love pencil skirts, they are so classy. You can pair it with a printed blouse a perfect look for daytime or at the office. At night you can spice it up a little with a lace peplum top or a pop of color with a plunging neckline for a sophisticated yet sexy look.

Lastly is the trouser pant. Just like the blazer and pencil skirt its a classic piece that can be worn so many different ways! Here’s a look I wore last week to a bridal shower. I paired mine with a printed blouse and chain strap bag for a sophisticated daytime look.
I hope this was helpful for you ladies!!

    Great post Andee, I love the ideas. I don't own a suit, because I don't work in a corporate environment. I love mixing separates, and do so all the time!

  4. Hi Andee! I absolutely love your style! That outfit would be perfect for me to wear for my daughter's christening. Would you mind sharing the details of where to purchase? Thanks so much! 🙂

  5. Fun post! You look beautiful Andee….very classy. Love that blouse you're wearing. It was definitely feeling like Fall in No CA over the weekend. I wore a maxi dress, a sweater and some boots. It would have looked better with a blazer but it worked out OK. I love Fall clothing.

    1. thanks love! Maxi dresses are just as chic with a sweater and boots! Cant wait to wear that combo too I think were finally starting to see a "little" colder weather down this way 😉

    1. I just used a 1 1/2 in barrel curling iron and spray with hairspray before curing it (as my hair isn't the best at holding curl). I was going for some loose Lauren Conrad curls xo

  6. Hey Andee,I just had a look on ASOS for the pants, I'm just wondering are these the button front detail pants or just the plain wide leg ones?

  7. Do you have suggestions on the latest handbag trends? I see some black ones on the right but not sure of the brand. Let me know what you see trending…thanks so much!

  8. I am male from Germany, carry myself wide-leg/bark bottoms/flared pants / jeans like one would like to call them also always and your trousers are simply fantastic. I wished this also here to more women thus dressed would be on the move. I love it if the trousers are nicely wide below and go as well as with you about the shoes. you are a very nice woman with an excellent taste. I hope you have nothing against it if I your block pursues.

    "lol yes! I in a wide also lay junkie ;)" I :-))
