Blazer Find

Sometimes you can find great pieces in very unexpected places!  On a run for supplies at Sam's Club I came across this Blazer.  I immediately fell for the black & white stripes, & at only $20 I knew I had to have it.

Blazers are one of those pieces that you can easily dress up or down depending on what you pair with it. They are also great piece because they provide structure to accentuate your shape. This particular blazer being black & white makes it versatile with any color as well.

I recently wore it to the office & paired it with a lovely red pleated-front blouse, knit skinny pants, & tall boots.





Another way I plan on wearing this blazer for a causal look is simply wearing it with a graphic tee & perhaps a colored jean.  This makes it a transitional piece through different seasons as well depending on the color of the jean you wear.  I've given examples below...

How about simply wearing a white tee or while button-up blouse underneath this blazer, but adding a statement necklace for interest...easy, but chic!

I'm pleased with my surprise find at Sam's Club.  I know I'll get a lot of use out of this blazer.  Just goes to show you that you can find great pieces anywhere...you just need to keep you eyes open!

P.S. Check out the Facebook page for how I wore this blazer in a more casual way.  Also, don't forget to follow the blog on Bloglovin.  Find the links to both in the upper right column.

  1. I didn't even realize Sam's Club had clothes! I thought they just had groceries. (Mind you, I've never lived anywhere that had Sam's Club period so that might help explain my complete ignorance.) Either way, that's a really cute blazer and as always you do a fantastic job of creating outfit sets do help me visualize the options for it. :) -Gina

    1. Crazy to find something like this a Sams Club, I know! While I certainly don't go there specifically seeking out clothing pieces, I have found some great pieces for the wardrobe both there & Costco...crazy! And, I owe you a Congratulations on the Seahawks!! They showed up & played a great game, unlike the opposing team...embarrassing performance from my Broncos :-(

  6. Okay, that IS a really random find but it's so cute!! I have a navy and white striped blazer but I also keep thinking I need a black and white one, too. I may have a blazer problem...

  7. I like the graphic tees trend with the blazer! I'd been toying with the idea of getting one of the ponte blazers from Old Navy, but had not fully envisioned how it would integrate into my closet - but now I can see it!
