Do you collect anything? For example, when I was much younger, I used to have a bunny collection (#somanyfigurinerabbits), and then for awhile I was collecting magnets from every place I visited, but that fizzled out too.

And now? Well, now, I thought that I didn’t really collect anything, but turns out that was a lie. Becauuuuusssseeee….

I am a blazer collector, folks. And I’m pretty dang good at it. I’ve amassed a large small collection of colors and patterns, and I’m always on the lookout for a new beauty to add to my treasure trove. Like this lovely Regent blazer from J.Crew (here). I loved how it looked on Fran (here for how she’s worn it) and figured I might as well get the infamous J.Crew blazers a try. I love how it fits and the way it adds a layer of professionalism to this outfit.

And besides, as a expert collector of blazers, can you really have too many blazers in your collection? No, no you cannot!

ps. I also apparently collect dog hair. On my blazers, but also on my skirts, shirts, dresses, pants, coats, etc. You could even say that I’m a refined collector of dog hair (since I specialize in the hair of one Australian Shepherd/mix breed dog). ;)

Ten Things I’ve Loved This Past Week on The Internet:

  1. I ordered these striped pants this weekend, because I thought they might be perfect for some non-boring work pants. I’ll keep you posted, but I’m worried that even in the talls, they might be too short for my giraffe legs!
  2. Blogger love of the week: Obsessed doesn’t even begin to cover how I feel about this look on Daphne. Blue + white + tulips…say no more! I’ll be recreating this here as soon as the weather can figure itself out over here!
  3. This might be the prettiest skirt in the history of skirts.
  4. J.Crew shows you how to style your denim the next time you are in a style rut!
  5. These striped ankle strap flats are the perfect spring/summer addition to anyone’s wardrobe!
  6. The last thing I need in my closet is another jacket/coat, but this one is such a fun shape, annnnnd it comes with detachable stripe cuffs! Love it!
  7. Kudos to LEGO for their new collection featuring five NASA pioneers…who all just happen to be female! Check them out here, and hopefully this is just the beginning of more to come! 
  8. I was just casually browsing Banana Republic the other day for work pants, when I stumbled upon the knockout maxi dress in a gingham print! Guh! Love it and would be so perfect for summer weddings or summer BBQs and everything in between!
  9. Love the song “Shape of You” by Ed Sheeran (one of my current favorite singers)…so naturally, I loved the classroom instrument version by The Roots and Jimmy Fallon and of course, Ed. That banana maraca!
  10. Scallops + eyelet + a variety of spring colors? Say no more…I’m ordering this pretty blouse!

ps. This “shirt” is a shirt dress tucked into a skirt. Pretty clever, huh? Gotta maximize that wardrobe!

Can’t resist a good rabbit pun, especially with the print on this blouse. But I have to confess, I can’t take credit for that title, guys…that was all The Husband’s contribution. What can I say? We were made for each other!

But seriously, what IS happening?!

It’s been a bit since I have written a blog post, since the posts from last week were pre-scheduled for vacation! I’m not even sure I know how to do it anymore, so we’ll start off slow today with a few of my new favorite pieces (and a total dad joke title…par for the course, here).

This J.Crew sweater-blazer is my new best friend (sorry to anyone else who has ever held that title). This might be the first time I’m showcasing it in an outfit post, but I can assure you that you will see it again and again, as I’m constantly wearing it and remixing it in real life. Oh, and it has pockets! Win. It hasn’t been on promo this entire time, but surprisingly, it is 20% off today only (here – with code SHOPFAST), if you want to scoop it up! I’m wearing a small and normally take a medium from J.Crew, if that helps you out with sizing!

And while this outfit would have looked ultra classic with a chic black bag, I couldn’t help adding a dash of color into the mix with my favorite red crossbody purse. The perfect size, the perfect shape, and the perfect color. And if you’re not crazy about the color…it comes in a bunch of other colors and patterns (and is also 20% off today with the same code)!

One more favorite thing? Tomorrow is Friday! Let’s hop to it! ;)

Ten Things I’ve Loved This Past Week on The Internet:

  1. While I may never understand off-the-shoulder looks or bell sleeves or any other crazy sleeve option looks (seriously, where does one wear this?), I do understand simple white shirtdress…and the need for one in my closet (especially if it is under $50!).
  2. Blogger love of the week: Major fan of this look from Nicole…I mean can you beat a classic early-spring look that involves airy neutrals and a special shoutout to yours truly? No, no you can’t! ;) 
  3. I love classic looking purses with no labels that still have a unique look, and this circle purse from Madewell fits those qualifications exactly! Now, which color to get…
  4. This stunning craftsman home remodel makes me want to put on my painting clothes and get to work on some rooms in my own house. Just simply gorgeous what they did to the place!
  5. While this yellow cardigan might be my new fav, this affordable option from BP looks remarkably cozy and comes in two great neutral colors.
  6. You better believe that these suede espadrille wedge sandals will sell out…so buy them now, because these are definitely a great dupe/look for less!
  7. 3 ways to wear a trench coat this spring.
  8. And just in case you need a trench to wear this spring, here is a great one that is under $70!
  9. 28 things you’ll definitely remember if you were a 90’s elementary kid…Math Blaster, you guys! MATH. BLASTER!
  10. The cutest espadrilles EVER.

I mean what other cherry pun was I going to use for the title of the first post featuring this fun cherry graphic print dress?

No, but seriously…do you know any others that I should use in the future? Submissions are being accepted. Dad jokes accepted here. ;)
