Power Suit (See Jane Wear)

Anthropologie blazer, H&M pants (similar), Club Monaco blouse, Express shoes, Elizabeth & James sunglasses,
unknown bracelet (matching necklace here)
When I don't feel like trying very hard, I throw on a blazer.  Many people say it makes them more polished and while that's true, I just think they make me work harder.  I feel a bit more studious in them and think people might take me more seriously.  Think about it:  a power suit would be nothing without the almighty blazer.  Put on blazer.  Work.  Repeat.

  5. Great office look. I think I'm just scarred from having to wear suits when I don't want to so when I wear a blazer I automatically feel like I look stuffy. :(

  10. I'm in the throws of a full on blazer love affair right now - I'm tossing one on left, right and center to appear a bit more "serious" so I hear you! And you look great in them, especially paired with those awesome pants and a pair of flats.
