10 Ways to Wear a Light Colored Blazer

* August 6, 2009 *

I'm a real woman living in the real world. I don't have an overflowing allowance or budget for clothes and shoes and all things fabulous. And though sometimes I wish I did, I also have learned a lot in my years from having less than having more.

For instance, had I had the budget for designer clothes when I was young I may never have discovered vintage. If I could've just gone out and bought what all my friends were buying with their parent's credit cards, I would have never started DIYing my own versions of things. I became very creative out of necessity {and because I had a passion for it} and pride myself on being able to wear the same items time and time again yet styling them in a way that looks completely different.

I found this ivory blazer at a thrift shop a few years ago for under $10 ...it is part of a matching skirt/suit set and though I have yet to wear the skirt, I find the jacket to be quite versatile.

I like mine a bit over-sized ...and while mine's double breasted, a single button or two would do the trick just as well. Also look for one in an ivory tone as a bright white tends to look a bit "doctor-y" though this one is pretty cute
