friday's fancies - blog swap!

Hello lovely readers of Cornflake Dreams! I am Anna from A Newfound Treasure, and Jillian and I have swapped blogs for this week's Friday's Fancies. We thought it would be a fun and different idea to use 1 piece and give it 2 looks. What better than a classic black blazer?! So here it goes...

Blazer: Dress Up

OR

Blazer: Dress Down

Dressed up: Black and gold is a classic color combo -- I find it to be a match made in heaven! The color-blocking trend is one of my current favorites, and this amazing dress with a gold leather band is stunning! Add a clutch with nods to subtle animal prints, a sexy wedge shoe and a statement necklace -- you're set for a night out. You'll be turning heads right and left, no doubt!

Dressed down: I love the conventional blazer paired with casual pieces for a little juxtaposed look. I have something similar that I wear almost weekly. This outfit is comfortable and casual with a touch of sophistication. A black blazer takes an everyday tee and jean outfit to a new level! Don'tcha think? Personally, I love the look!! Slap on minimal accessories and fun flats. Done.

Thanks for letting me crash the blog today! I hope that I've made some new friends here. Be sure to go visit my blog, and while you're there, go check out the 2 looks that Jillian is sharing with my readers!

Have a great weekend everyone!

XO

  2. jillian--I have the wedges you posted and love them to the moon. Seychelles shoes are wonderful.

    And these two looks are great. I would wear both of them, and she definitely hit the nail on the head with dressing up versus dressing down. So cute!
