30 x 30 Day 17: Gingham, Brown, & Lots of Purple

I had a really, really bad MISS when styling this purple jacket a few days ago - I'm debating whether to even post it as part of my 30 x 30 or to pretend it never happened. I put the purple blazer away for a few days hoping to let my mind rest, and the resting worked out because this outfit came to me while I was sleeping last night and I couldn't wait to wear it to work today. I'm really loving this new-ish necklace my friend gave me for my birthday. We were shopping together one day before Christmas and Banana Republic was having a 40% off everything sale. I expressed interest in the necklace and she grabbed it from me and bought it as a gift! What a nice friend, right? No close up pics of the necklace today but it has purple stones, so it goes great with all my new purple clothes :) What's your favorite thing you've bought/received recently?

Linking up with Mix & Match Fashion for What I Wore to Work


  1. So in love with the color of your blazer! Thanks so much for linking up with me today!

  2. I really really love the pattern mixing here between the skirt, shoes, and top!! As for the miss...I definitely have days like that, some of which I post simply to keep a record of what not to wear :)

  3. Great pattern mixing here- I really love that skirt!


  4. Love the blazer fit and color--heading over to J.Crew now...this could be dangerous!

  5. You come up with the most original color combos ever! Just love this look. :-)


  6. You'll get some great deals if you shop the 40% off sale!

  7. I'll probably post it as a 2 in 1 day - doesn't deserve its own post lol
