Welcome to another Mix it Monday! Today the lovely (and hilarious) Alissa is standing in for me and bringing you four style ideas for remixing a white blazer! Don’t forget to link up below!
Hi guys! I’m Alissa of The Adored Life and Lauren kindly asked me to guest post during her time away. While I was thinking of topics I was thinking about how Lauren is going through a major change and how this entire time of the year is a transition so that got me started on transition fashion.
In the middle of August I always start to try and figure out what pieces are going to take from me through this awkward style time. Is it hot? Will it be cold? I’m also generally bored with the items that are in-stores because they only work for a short amount of time. So what’s been my favorite, can’t live without piece this entire year? A white blazer. Yep, a simple, $30 blazer from H&M has been a fashion life-saver.
Here I use it to dress up a basic Target romper when I had to go to a nice dinner. Even though it was in the middle of the summer when I wore this, the restaurant I went to was freezing and I was glad for the extra warmth of a blazer.
One of my favorite ways to wear a blazer this summer has been with destructed jeans. I love the contrast of business and causal between the top and bottom of the outfit.
One of the main reasons I love a white blazer? You look pretty put together no matter what you are wearing. A college tank top? Boyfriend jeans? Check. Need to look good for a quick meeting? Throw on a blazer and people will think you’ve had this outfit planned for days.
One of the best ways for me to feel like I am getting the most out of my wardrobe pieces is to invest in sleeveless tops. Why? Because they are great for layering and go from summer to winter. This polka dot tank is a super light summer tank but with the blazer I was able to make it ready for a chilly spring date night.
Since I’ve gotten this white blazer I’ve had to actually write reminders that I CANNOT wear it more than once a week. It’s just been the perfect transition from hot days to being inside of a cold office to dressing up a basic date night look when I didn’t have time to full dress up. It’s been the best $30 at H&M I have ever spent.
Thanks Lauren for letting me guest post!
Alissa is the best! Great post.

Another great guest-poster!! I love Alissa and her blog 🙂 I love all the ways you styled that cute white blazer Alissa, well except with the KU t-shirt. As a K-State fan I just can’t get behind that one 🙂
LOVE the looks! The blazer + romper combo is my favorite. Chic and easy to wear. Thanks for Monday morning style inspiration! xo
Always love hearing from Alissa! The white blazer is a true workhorse!
Way to go Alissa…..a white blazer is EVERYTHING!!!
I am just so afraid to won anything white! I love how chic it looks though.
A great guest post! Alissa’s smile is helping me get through the day! 🙂
I never realized how much I need a white blazer. It apparently looks great with everything. I will now be spending my entire evening obsessively searching online for white blazers.
I agree, that white blazer is great! Lauren has the best guest posts while she is enjoying her little girl! Alissa, you have great style!
