In my opinion, a white blazer is a wardrobe staple. I say this in most of my outfit posts because I believe building a working wardrobe entails investing in classic pieces that you can pair with multiple clothing items.
I purchased this blazer from Forever 21 a while back and I’m quite impressed with the crisp, clean and bright look it portrays.
All white ensembles are trending this spring, I’ve been begging my mother to sew me a wide leg, high-waisted pant, however she has made every effort to ignore my request.
I’ve been waiting to come across a pencil skirt to wear with this blazer for quite some time, and when I saw this abstract print skirt on River Island’s website, I knew it was the one. It has the white, to compliment white in the blazer, along with blue, orange and black.
I went with a royal blue spaghetti strap tank top, also from Forever 21, underneath the blazer. Funny thing was I didn’t even realize I had a top to match this skirt. I love when I find clothes that match exactly because that’s actually difficult to do.
Now, I’m just going to say that I hate the shoes I wore and I’ll probably never wear them again. I purchased them from urbanog.com because I couldn’t get the shoes I wanted from Charlotte Russe. They’re actually a dupe for the Aquazzura Amazon Lace-Up Leather Sandals. However, because the toe strap isn’t narrow enough, my foot kept sliding up to the front of the shoe, creating a crab like look.
Nobdody likes the crab-look.
I’m just happy I figured this out now before I wore this shoes to a party and kept having to do that awkward “balance each foot on heel” dance to guide my feet back into the shoes. That’s not cute.
If I had an opportunity to style this outfit again, I would go with a closed-in shoe or a minimalist shoe such as the Stuart Weitzman Nudist Sandal. Even better, I should’ve just worn my royal blue pumps and called it a day.
If you don’t care for white, note that the colorful skirt could’ve easily been paired with black shoes and a black blazer.
I imagine getting a lot of wears of this blazer.
