Trail Blazer

“Something as straightforward and simple as a blazer can be interpreted a hundred different ways. To me, it’s black and tailored. To you, it might be oversized and navy. To someone else, it’s shrunken and embellished. Basics–or what I like to call “key pieces”–are the foundation around which you’ll build your wardrobe…”
Lauren Conrad

I bought my first blazer last year and it is so versatile. You can wear it with a dress, skirt, jeans, leggings and a long top, tights and dress shorts, etc. I wear mine on a regular basis. I actually have two, now.

This blazer is from Goodwill and I love how tailored it is. I also like the way it’s cropped. I see a lot of blazers at Goodwill–definitely the jackpot.

Enjoying the Good Life,




  1. One of my favorite pieces in my wardrobe is a goodwill tweed blazer I bought in highschool. Going on ten years and I’m still not tired of it.

      Until last year, I hadn’t worn blazers in a while. Now, I love them! Perfect for layering! I’d love to see a picture of you in your blazer! I could post it on the blog. One decade and still going strong!

  2. Hmm, I’ll see if I can dig up (or take) a pic. (:

      Sounds good!

  3. LOVE your jacket! Love the quote. I totally agree and love wearing my blazers. I have several. I also shop the Goodwill. I was in there this weekend and picked up 2 blazers. A brown and a black. I post what I wear weekly on Wednesday…which is Goodwill outfits. ha!
