For the third feature in my new series The Vaulted Closet, it’s all about the blazer. Typically, one would go with more of a neutral shade, like a black or white. Personally, I love adding color to my closet, so when I saw this emerald one, it was a zero hesitation purchase. I’ve since worn it over a white romper and a black slip dress. When the weather warms up a tad, I look forward to wearing it with my favorite cut offs or over my overalls.

People tend to have mixed feelings about blazers, and I suppose I understand. The first thought on blazers are that they’re stuffy and/or not very feminine. It’s quite the opposite, though. They look beyond chic when paired with something casual, like I’ve done above. I especially love them as a suit, though, if they will button high enough to go sans shirt. Jacey Dupree of Damsel In Dior did this perfectly.

In addition to this emerald one, I also have a fuchsia, a white, and a black one. I get a lot of use out of all four, but the most out of the black.

Sleeveless blazers are also a great alternative if a boxy shoulder isn’t your thing. If you want to go that route, I have this one in white and I love it. I suggest sizing down by one if you chose to purchase it.

In keeping count of money invested, here’s where I stand right now:

$36.00 for a denim jacket

$50.00 for a utility jacketĀ 

$44.00 for this Emerald Blazer

I’ve spent $130.00 out of $1,400.00 and I’ve gotten three items that I can style at least 5 different ways! Ryan and I are shooting tomorrow afternoon and this blazer is actually part of a fun birthday post I have coming next Wednesday. With that said, it will push the 4th Vaulted Closet piece back until Thursday. I know a few of you come here to see those, knowing they go live on Wednesday’s, so I just wanted to let you all know!

Thank y’all for reading and I hope you’re enjoying your day!!
