one blazer, eight ways

coral blazer with a black skirt 
A lot of the bloggers I follow, for obvious reasons, have a style similar to my own. This really works out in my favor because not only am I consistently inspired by them, but many times they'll own a very similar, or the same, piece of clothing so I can totally copy them without much effort on my part! ;)

When I bought this blazer (which you can also now own for just over $30 with the current 40% sale items promotion - use code GAPSALE), I was really excited to see that Kimmie, Anne, and Erika all own it as well. They each have their own unique styles and lives (Kimmie is a working mom of two, Anne is an editor with her first babe on the way, and Erika is training to be a doctor) so I knew we would all wear it in different ways. I love seeing how we all wore it in different (but also kind of similar) ways!

8 different ways to wear a coral blazer
coral, stripes, and leopard
Skirt: Thrifted
Shirt: Banana Republic [exact]
Belt: Old Navy [similar]
Tights: c/o Hanes
Shoes: Tory Burch [exact]
Earrings: Tiffany & Co. [exact]
I just got the blazer back from the tailor and am thrilled with the results. Definitely worth the tailoring costs to have it fit better than it did off the rack.
