My outfit Monday: The blazer trick




Overslept. Woke up to a woobly head. Forgot about the roofers coming before work. Hello, Monday.

On mornings when a shower feels like an accomplishment, who has the energy for a fussy outfit? The fashion deities invented the no-iron dress for days like this. And that fail-proof extra: the blazer.

My husband has a theory that a guy could wear three-day-old t-shirt and jeans, throw a blazer over it, and achieve instant cool. I prefer to start with clean clothes from my closet, but I think he may be onto something.

Ergo, today's finishing touch: A goes-with-everything jean blazer (Loft, circa fall 2010). For inquiring minds, the dress is Michael Kors (Dillard's) and the gold sandals are by Cole Haan (also scored on sale Dillard's.)

Monday outfit, done! Now if only I can remember where I dropped my car keys...
