how to style a blazer and jeans for work

{Zara blazer (another great one!), Silence & Noise blouse (a classic white blouse!), Paige Denim c/o, J. Crew Biennial Satchel, Forever 21 beanie, Zara heels (simple yet chic pair) and flower pin, Bauble Bar necklace, SEE sunglasses}

There's something so effortless about a blazer and jeans- it really is my go-to whenever I'm at a loss for what to wear to work. I obviously will play up the simplicity of this easy look with an overload of louder pieces. For example the beanie- it adds a little funk, the giant flower pin- it says I'm ready for Spring, and the highest pair of tolerable heels I own- making an entrance into any room is easy in a fabulous pair of heels. The moral of the story is wear your basics- like a railroad stripe blazer and your favorite dark denim jeans- and then add the fun extras to really make the outfit you.
