Outfit Idea // Blazer and Flares

I am so excited to share my first capsule wardrobe outfit.  Denim, of course is a very key component in the capsule wardrobe, and while my everyday denim tends towards skinny jeans, flares definitely have a place in the capsule wardrobe.  They are ridiculously flattering, make your legs look super long, and are equal parts retro and chic - two of my favorite adjectives.  

Blazer and lace shirt

A black blazer - I have an intense post in the works about finding the perfect black blazer.  This is one of four in my rotation, evidence that my wardrobe needs editing.  Four might be too many black blazer, but one really really good is enough.  I'm not convinced this is the perfect black blazer for me, I picked it up at a consignment shop, and love the leather details.  

flare jeans are back!

And the last important piece of the look, the lace blouse.  This blouse is beautiful on it's own, with an open back and pretty bell sleeves.  The texture and high neck line make it a perfect piece for layering under a blazer.
