MCLV Style: Classic Boyfriend Blazer

There are a few staples that every well-balanced wardrobe should contain, and one of those is a classic boyfriend blazer. What’s great about this kind of piece is how flattering and versatile it is.

This blazer from the oh-so-fab Tobi can go with ANYTHING.

Seriously though.

Anything.

If you work in a casual office environment you can go ahead and try pairing it with jeans, a v-neck tee, and booties.

Or… If you’re on the corporate side of things like I am, you can pair with slacks and a blouse or even throw it over your favorite work-appropriate sheath dress.

But don’t despair, it even works for an evening out. At nighttime you can wear it with a little black dress and statement jewelry for a glam, but still approachable and low-maintenance evening look.

So what’s my favorite way to wear mine?

I pulled this little peplum romper out of my closet just for the occasion. It looks so cute paired with these nude mules and a black & white handbag. It’s a little dressy and it’s a little fun, while still being a classic, put-together look.

What’s YOUR blazer style? Classic like me? Do you have a favorite way to wear yours that always makes a splash?

MCLV Style: Cape Blazer

It’s fairly well established on this website how I feel about capes. Truthfully – “Love” might be an understatement.

During a very productive trip to Nordstrom recently for their Half-Yearly Sale I was on the hunt for a classic trench coat but this cape blazer jumped out at me instead.

Of course.

I’m especially smitten with the structured style and useful arm holes – It makes it a really versatile piece that goes with almost anything.

MCLV Style: Checkered Dress – Part II

After showing off my favorite new checkered dress from Asos in all its strapless glory a few weeks ago, I wanted to share my favorite way to take a sweet Summer dress into Fall!

Living in San Francisco is all about embracing labels. When you reside in a city where it can go from pouring rain to sunshine in a few hours time and fog is a near-constant, you learn the value of carrying scarves and umbrellas on a daily basis.

Taking a great printed dress like this beauty from a sunny Summer day in the park to a fun Fall brunch is simply a matter of the perfect blazer.

This crisp cropped Mod Cloth blazer in the perfect shade of white was the obvious choice – It adds the perfect amount of polish without detracting from the eye-catching print.

How would YOU wear this checkered dress?
