Blue & Baubles

When it comes to dressing up, I am like most girly girls out there – I
enjoy a great cocktail dress with a killer pair of shoes, flawless
makeup, and big hair. However, since occasions where it is appropriate
to wear such attire are far and few inbetween these days, I kind of
cheat when I want to dress up for more casual special occasions, such as
going out to dinner.

If you’ve been reading MITM for a while, it is no secret that I love boyfriend blazers. Just as with this outfit, my blazer took a simple pair of black skinnies and a dressy blue tee from looking just nice to put-together and appropriate for a fancy dinner and night on the town. Plus, the lining adds a pop of leopard and I am NEVER opposed to leopard print. The statement necklace is one of my favorites because it is a neutral color, which keeps it from competing with anything else in the outfit.

Another reason why I don’t mind cheat-dressing up? I can guarantee I will be more comfortable (and warm!) than the girl in a spandex dress and stilettos.
