Fancy Patriotism

Full disclosure: I have eaten waaaaay too much of the Chili’s chips and salsa that we got last night. Chips are my #1 weakness. So sue me? (Please don’t, then I can’t go shopping!)

More jeans at work today (and we get them Thursday AND Friday of this week too…so lucky!), and I’ve done a similar look with this blazer (see here), but wanted to make it just a little bit nicer for work. The riding boots and gold tassel necklace did a good job, and the fresh white makes it look much nicer for work than a heather gray tee. Blue, red, and white is one of my favorite color combinations, but I always feel a little patriotic when I am wearing all three together.

ps. On track and almost done with Nicole at VV Boutique Style’s January Blackout Challenge! 2 more days!

  • Striped blazers are so cute!! I think I need to own one when I work full-time in an office!

    • Sara – I wholeheartedly agree! Be careful though, I now own 3 striped blazer, so it is an addiction! ;)
