Go-To Get-Up

Tee: Urban Outfitters, $10 // Blazer: Vintage, thrifted, $1.50 // Jeans: Guess via TJMaxx, $28 // Shoes: Abaete for Payless // Scarf: Courtesy of LOFT via the Lucky Alpha Shopper program

When I woke up this morning, my already nasty cold had worsened, so I decided to go to work late. By the time I rolled out of bed, I wanted to get ready as quickly as possible. Without really thinking, I threw on this outfit. When in doubt (or a hurry), my default combination is a t-shirt, blazer, skinnies and a scarf. I suppose it's pretty predictable, but I tried to keep things interesting with the stripes and floral combo. Isn't the scarf pretty? I have a feeling I'll be wearing it a lot this spring. The pumps were my attempt at making the look more office-appropriate since I'm not really supposed to wear jeans. 

Coverage of the fashion show to come tomorrow!

You always do a great job at rocking the scarfs. Any tips? Any time I try to wear a scarf it never looks right unless I'm wearing a winter coat. My whole upper body always looks engulfed in the material.

Yup, that's pretty win for an uncomplicated solution. This has so far definitely be the week that truly requires uncomplicated solutions.

I don't care if this is a simple outfit, I think it looks fantastic! I'm loving stripes these days, and I really like the colour in your outfit.

I love this look, this is my default look for work as well when I over sleep. I pair my skinnies with heels and blazer too hoping people at work will get over the fact I'm wearing jeans.

Love the scarf!

I cannot believe you found such a great blazer from thrift. I'm wondering if you mean thrift like "buffalo exchange" or more like "goodwill" either way you are a thrift success! So nice
