Something blue

 

 
I can't tell you how many hours I have dragged my boyfriend around a mall, looking for a navy blue blazer. I have wanted one forever but couldn't justify the price tag for some of the ones that I liked. I always try to find a good deal or a less expensive blazer that doesn't look ratty or stringy. A sigh of relief came out of my boyfriends mouth when I told him that I FINALLY found the navy blue blazer that I wanted. I'm pretty sure he did a jig... lol.. ok no, but that would've been funny!

I found this navy blue blazer at H&M last weekend, and..... IT WAS ON SALE !!! They had a few different colors but I literally grabbed this one and sprinted to the check out before I could look at any other color. I think it was only twenty something $$$. I love how it's cropped and not too long. Unfortunately because I'm only 5'3, I usually like blazers to be on the shorter side. This, is a one button blazer and the material is so soft. I love that I can wear the sleeves pushed up or down depending on how cold it is outside.

I decided to match this outfit with a simple one pocked white tee from Pacsun, destroyed Abercromie & Fitch skinnies and on my way out the door, I grabbed for my Jessica Simpson cognac boots (favourite boots). I absolutely love this new blazer and I think I may go back and check out the other colors because seriously... I love me a good blazer!

Hope everyone has a fun weekend!!! I think it's going to storm here all dang weekend.. ughhhh!

 
Love always,
Mel

I love H&M's blazers, I have a couple of them and they always fit my shoulders really well. Every girl should have the perfect navy blazer.
