how I styled my blazer

Blazers are no longer just for work and I’m hyped about it.

Last week, I found the most perfect J.Crew houndstooth print blazer at the thrift store. Whaaaat?! It was 50% off for President’s Day so I got it for $7! The typical retail price for this is around $80-$140 so this was totally a win.

Once I got it home, I was a little confused about how style it in a way that reflected my personal style. I’m usually pretty casual, sometimes outdoorsy, a little boho… (Yeah, I have no idea how to describe my style lol. It’s just Maria). Anyway, I knew I had to dress this baby down.

For this look, I paired my blazer with a plain black crop tank top, distressed boyfriend jeans, and leather boots. To make it even more casual, I accessorized with Ray Bans sunnies and a big, flat-brim hat. All of these pieces worked together to dress down the blazer, a piece that would typically be considered as dressy.

I felt like I could conquer the world in this outfit, which is always something to strive for with clothing! If you’re looking for a similar blazer to give you all the lady boss feels, I’ve linked some similar options below and kept them all below $75!
