Navy Watercolor Blazer - 2 Similar Ways.

These 2 Outfits are so similar to each-other and I wore them last Wednesday and yesterday to be exact (a week apart from each-other) for teaching. Of course, wearing such similar outfits exactly a week apart wasn't planned. I didn't realize that till I saw the pictures on my computer, today. Both feature my Watercolor Navy Blazer (one of my top 10 picks, this month) which I paired with White Tees from White House Black Market (both times), Beaded Black/White Necklaces from White House Black Market (both times), Black Skinny Pants (both times... lol - seeing a pattern here) and Brown/Cognac Shoes (both times). There are some differences. For one, in the second outfit my Tee is Printed/Graphic. The print of it is Navy/Black over White which goes so well with the Blazer and adds some Subtle Pattern-Mixing. In the first Outfit my Black Skinnies are Velvet and in the second one - Denim. In last week's outfit I am wearing my Brown, Edgy Booties (another item from my top 10 items that I am remixing this month), while in yesterday's outfit I am wearing my Brown Alligator Slip-on Loafers. I still prefer the second look with the Graphic Tee a little more - it has some more interest. What about you? Speaking of Graphic Tees, they were yesterday's prompt for Create 28 Lovely Spring Looks which I am following all month long. So, what are you up to this Thursday?

It got quite warm and sunny yesterday in early afternoon so my blazer came off for a couple of hours. I wanted to show you the outfit without it, also.

  10. What a pretty printed blazer, I love it! I like both looks but I'm with you, the casual version is my favorite. I think it's the shoes--those cognac slip-ons are FAB!!
