A Week of Blazers

It’s Fall, my favorite time of year, and time to wear one of my favorite items of clothes – The Blazer. The love of the blazer is a legacy passed on to me by my mom. It could be 95 degrees in Jamaica, you can almost be sure you’ll find my mom in a blazer or jacket of some sort. So I can’t help it. It’s probably in my DNA. You don’t believe me? Here are some pics of my mom over the years in her infamous Blazer outfits:

Here she is with her Lions Club vest, and she’s wearing a blazer under it!

So here’s what I’m wearing this week to continue the blazer legacy:

Today calls for a burgundy jacket, blue and white dotted shirt, blue pants and high heeled booties.  

On Wednesday evenings, I go to church service so I’ll be wearing a fall-print dress and … You guessed it, a blazer!  This is another dress I’ve had since last year and didn’t wear – it’s close fitting and last fall, it just didn’t fit well. This year, I’m finally at the size where I can rock it comfortably.
  On Thursday, I have to attend a funeral for one of my church members and I’ll be on the program calls for a long black dress and black blazer. I bought this one out of season at Express and have been waiting for the weather to be cool enough to wear it.
 Dress-down Friday calls for some casual kicks – jeans and sneaks, a printed top and one of my favorite fitted Blazers. 
Saturday, I’ll be in uniform for a church event and surprise, surprise, my Masterguide uniform is an army green jacket suit. You’ve seen me wear it before but just a reminder.

 On Sunday, I’m heading up north for a day trip and I think it’s the perfect day for my favorite fall jacket – this burnt orange number, with comfortable pants and these perfect gold flats from Avon, might I add! They have memory foam insoles that are perfect for walking! Check them out on the website here!

 That’s the plan!
What are you excited about wearing now that the weather is changing?

    Oooh I love the booties too! And they don’t look too high….can’t wear really high heels anymore as they may harm my runner’s feet!

      You’re right about them being all-year ready and I do wear them anytime I can get away with long sleeves 🙂
