Watercolor Blazer and Mini Sheath.

So, I guess I jinxed us. I mentioned yesterday that it has been pretty warm here considering that it is the middle of November. Yes, we were wearing layers but weren't bundled up like Eskimos or anything lol. Well today IRL I am wearing a Turtleneck Sweater, Heavy Puffer Coat and Pants because it cooled down a lot. But, the Outfit I am showing is from a week ago, last Friday. That's all I wore both outside and inside. It was a very important work day for me and I also went at the museum for a book promotion (work-related) so I dressed up a bit.
I feel like a Blazer dresses up even the simplest, most Casual Outfit. It is definitely a work-horse in a business/professional setting or an office. And I love my Blazers. Plus, it's still Blazers Week at Andi's Blog so join her. This is another New Blazer from H&M. I have worn it several times already and I am glad it finally made it to the blog. I paid 30 bucks for it and it was well-spent. This one is Navy+White in a Watercolor Print with a Faux Leather Lapel - I love that it looks like a perfect round frame. I wore it over one of my many neglected Dresses. This 3/4 Sleeve Mini Sheath is by Express. The Skirt part is Black while the top is a Gray Watercolor, sort of a Safari Print. The Top is see-through so I wore a Nude Cami underneath it. I added some simple but Sparkly Jewelry and my Nude Patent Leather Pumps and I was done. I love how the Colors of this Outfit blend together, creating a Monochromatic effect. What do you think? I linked up some gorgeous Sheath Dresses and Tuxedo-inspired Blazers, below so take a peek.
Jewelry:
Dangly Earrings w/ Black Crystal Square Stone & Circle Pearl: White House Black Market (similar, love these), (similar, great deal, love these), (gorgeous option by Betsey Johnson, on sale).
Real Silver, Dainty Chain Necklace w/ Chandelier Pendant featuring tiny Pastel Pink Crystals: Meijer's (similar gorgeous option, fine jewelry, love this), (similar w/ blue stones, fine jewelry, great deal, love this), (similar in silver tone, best deal).
Square, Black Metallic Hair Claw w/ Red Crystals: Bijoux & Accessories.
Nude, Round-Toe, Patent Leather Pumps: Apartment 9 (Kohl's) (very similar, great deal, love these), (similar w/ kitten heel), (similar w/ platform heel, on sale).

Before I leave off for today two things: I was featured here by Carrie and Sherri, with my Black+White Outfit featuring my White Jeans and Black Fair Isle Cardigan that I wore last week. Also, my Beautiful Blogging Friend Rachel from Rachel's Lookbook just celebrated her 3rd Blog Anniversary. Not only does Rachel have a beautiful, girly and classy personal style, her blog is a mixture of other great things like interior design, deals, fun collaborations, makeup tips and great food so check her out and say hello. Plus Rachel is very sweet.

Enjoy your weekends!!!
