{style inspiration: the blazer}

I have to admit to always looking at what Olivia Palermo is wearing ... she combines things I wouldn't always think to and she's got impeccable taste. One thing I remember her saying is to get a REALLY good tailor, the better your favorite pieces fit, the better they'll look! I think this has a lot to do with it. OP sure knows how to pick out classic pieces, and one thing she does best is blazers. I've been obsessed with blazers this year, I'm convinced they make everything look better. Here's some evidence from Olivia herself ...

With pants or dresses:


Structured and tailored:


In colors and textures:


White hot:


And dressing up shorts!


Love it! Have you been filling your wardrobe with blazers too?

And just in case you hadn't seen, be sure to check out Two Penny Blue, Erin Gates' latest venture. Her shop is setting out to master the blazer, in fanastic fits, colors and styles. A perfect source for the blazer obsessed like me!

I love her style, it suits my aesthetic to a T, and yes for the first time in years I have returned to blazers this year, I'm looking for a navy one for autumn.

I love a good blazer too. I have to stop myself from wearing one almost everyday, they just look great with everything. so jealous of Olivia's collection!

I admit I love her style too...but her mean girl reputation turns me off. On a happier note...Cannot wait for fall shopping!!!!

That girl could wear a burlap sack and look good, but yes, the blazer is classic!
Hope you're having a great time!!!!!

Miss Palermo can do no wrong in my book when it comes to her seemingly effortless style. TPB is not Erin Gates' company though- she was hired as a consultant only, just fyi, from all the media tidbits and interview with its Harvard-educated creator published recently.

I have always loved the clean classic lines of a blazer. Olivia wears them really well, she's always had great style ..... I'm not a big fan of her but she does have great style. Can you imagine wearing a blazer in this heat??? Whew
