Outfit: White & Gold

SEQUINBLAZER_3gifted PJK Blazer  (on sale, and also in black) // Rory Beca Dress // Express Tights

Sam Edelman Boots (similar) // gifted Rebecca Minkoff Bag // gifted K. Kane Necklace

This outfit came together rather unexpectedly.  I was feeling a little bored with my winter clothes and wanted to wear my white Rory Beca dress to work that day.  I then proceeded to try on at least a dozen blazer/sweater options in an attempt to winterize the outfit, without much luck.  Nothing seemed to work the way I wanted it to.  Rather absentmindedly, I reached for this blazer and voila… I was dressed.  (I’ve said it before but I am a little shocked by how much mileage I’ve gotten out of this blazer.  I wear it with dresses, jeans, leggings… everything.)

    I love that blazer, Grace!

  22. I’ve loved watching all the ways you pair this blazer via your blog and Instagram. It’s cool to see what would normally be a ‘wear it only a few times statement piece’ in my mind to something you get a lot of mileage out of.

  23. I’m pretty much in love with everything about this look – and totally jealous of your ability to wear it to work! Your hair looks amazing as well!
