There is no wardrobe staple quite like that of a blazer. I know I could not live without mine. As I sit here at work on a casual Friday I am earing jean, a white tee, my J Crew schoolboy blazer in a heather gray and navy/pink rep striped flats from Brooks Brothers. I wore the same blazer earlier in the week with charcoal gray plaid pants and a blue button down. My personal favorite blazers are the schoolboy version from J Crew. I have one in navy and one in gray as well as a seersucker and chambray one. I do also have 2 blazers that are actual Brooks Brothers boys blazers in size 16, one in a black watch plaid and another in navy. Ironically, the navy one is currently being worn by my 13 year old son, he'll soon outgrow it and it will return to my closet full time. I found all the pictures below on Pinterest, another new obsession of mine. They reflect the more casual ways blazers are indispensable. I sort of feel the work ways are obvious. How about you? Do you love a good blazer. I made the move from cardigans a while ago and never looked back. I basically look better with a little structure. If you love blazers, do you have a favorite?

Now that I'm not the little league president and spending all my weekend in athletic pants and a hoodie down at the ball park I've been working to upgrade my weekend wear for summer. I'm still going to games, baseball for AGB and lacrosse for CMB, but as a spectator. I'm not obliged to chalk and drag the fields, warm up pitchers, man the snack bar or otherwise run around like a crazy person. I'm in the SF Bay Area and so it can be chilly in the mornings and evenings even in summer. I'm liking these two looks from Lands End. It's sort of my new formula, Bermuda shorts, cute top, cardigan (or denim jacket) and cute flats or sneakers. So far so good. What looks do you sport on the weekends?

When I saw the statement above, I knew I wanted to come back and share. I feel like I am re-energized and back in charge of who I am and what I want. I finally feel like I am someone I want my daughter to look up to. I got a great education and when it mattered was able to step up and lead. As someone who has long been insecure and it's a wonderful feeling!
Now summer is coming and I think it's going to be great. If you are still out there reading, thanks for sticking around. If you are just finding me, welcome!
