Work It: Seersucker Blazer

For the most part my blog features my daily work outfits with weekend wear thrown in here and there.  I am a practical gal so most of the clothes I purchase are work appropriate, which I transform into weekend wear.  I am not into flashy or trendy clothes so this approach works well for me.  Unless your work life is drastically different from your after hours life or you wear a uniform, most people follow the same mantra.  In an effort to maximize ALL the outfit pictures I have taken over the years I want to show you guys different ways I have worn some of my favorite items.

I absolutely love blazers and have over twenty-five or so, yeah that many.  Blazers are one of the easiest pieces to dress up or down.  If your job has a very strict dress code bright and colorful blazers are a great way to stand out but still conform.  On the other hand if your office setting is more casual a great pair of jeans and blazer with a hot pair of heel is always a win.  Above are just a few example of how I’ve worn my stripped seersucker blazer at work and on the weekends.  Seersucker blazers are traditionally worn by men so when I saw this blazer at H&M I knew I had to have it.  It’s also generally a summer fabric which works great in Miami.  Speaking of summer I know most of your are counting down the days until spring!

This blazer will probably be the reason I purchase these pants, yay on nay?

Do you guys remix your work clothes on the weekend or do you steer clear or anything work related on the weekend?

  • Very cute look!

  • Kisses on Ivory

    In the beauty industry black and white is the trend, so on the weekends I like to add a little more color. Black is still the canvas!

    Love the look. I stay far away from anything work related on the weekends.

  • Tammie

    Nice pants but way too pricey, in my opinion. You look great!

    Great looks….

  • Lioness

    I am like you. I am a blazer girl and I remix my clothes very well for work, church and weekend escapades 🙂 I love the color of the pants but not the cut.

    Where did you get this blazee?

  • I agree with finding versatility in clothes. My casual dresses, especially if they are sleeveless are good work/play looks. I also wear jeans for work and on the weekends as well as my flat shoes. Heels, tanks, and fitted clothing is reserved for Weekends only

    I think H&M….it was in the 2nd paragraph 🙂

  • I share your sentiments, the majority of my wardrobe is multi-functional. My style for the office does not differ greatly from my style after hours and on the weekends. Of course I have the occasional dressy event, and that calls for a little more pizazz than what I wear to the office.

    How is the sizing at the limited? I normally can buy a 12/14 but going by there sizing chart I would have to buy a 16. What do you suggest?

  • Hey Kimberly! I just received these pants on Friday and wore them to work yesterday. I tried the classic flares in a 12 in at the store, they didn't have the drew simply straight. The 12 fit but was too snug on my thighs, so I ordered a 14 in the drew simply straight. I love them, there is major waist gapping but that's a simple fix, the flow and feel of the pants are great. They did stretch out a little bit in the thigh area but nothing major. Hope that helps! Oh and they are on sale right now for 40% off.
