Statement Blazers

statement blazers

Today Dina from Sweetest Somethings and I are doing a blog swap. We both had statement blazers hanging in our closets and figured why not collaborate on a post? I love Dina’s blog- she posts yummy recipes, cute DIYs and a ton of outfit posts. She always looks so put-together and I wouldn’t mind switching wardrobes with her for a day- especially if she let me borrow this floral blazer! Here’s a sneak peek of Dina’s outfit below- head on over to her blog to see the full post!

When it comes to blazers, I usually stick to the classic black version. But when I saw this pretty version at H&M last winter, I knew I had to pick it up. The magenta color isn’t too crazy or bright and the ruffles at the waist add detail and curves. It’s easy to dress it up for work (with a pencil skirt and a white blouse) or dress it down for a night out (dark jeans and fun earrings, like I did in this post).

    Dina’s floral blazer is fun! It brightens up a winter outfit, but will be so cute for spring/summer too!

    And your blazer is amazing on you! Those ruffles accentuate your shape, and with those earrings, it brings the whole look together. Love it!
