April 25th, Ain’t no Sunshine (Award)

 Yesterday I was nominated for a Sunshine Award- which was so sweet! Thank you Laura from Who Planned This. 

Since it’s another grey, rainy day in Seattle, it’s nice to have a little sunshine coming from somewhere!

I’m wearing jeans, a tank and a blazer today.

On the right you can see the original look-a bright blue zip up fleece.

I wanted to show that by changing 1 tiny thing- in this case replacing the fleece with a blazer- and the whole look changes.

A blazer with cropped jeans just looks so much more polished and put together. Don’t you think?

I’m linking up with Pleated Poppy for What I Wore Wednesday- be sure to click here to see other great ideas!

Adding the chain necklace gives a little 'edge' to the look.
I opted for flats to keep it real. I'm running errands today- and want to be comfy!

Jeans: Old Navy, Tank: Express, Blazer: White House, Black Market, Shoes: Cole Haan

    1. Oh Jenny- it’s so good to hear from you again! I was thinking about you the other day- wondering how you are doing and realized I hadn’t heard from you in a while! Thanks so much for commenting! Hope life is good for you!

  1. Hey ! Just popped over for ideas for tomorrow & saw my name, THANKS ! Funny, I have something in the works for you as well, should be done by end of the weekend….
    Oh, & yes, the blazer is the best…

    1. Too funny! I had meant to email you to let you know that I nominated you! I can’t seem to figure out how to include the Sunshine logo on my site though! I wanted to figure that out before I let you know you were on it…

      You do make me laugh everyday! Thanks for that!

  2. Congrats on the award and thanks for leaving me a comment today. The blazer is really pretty and you are right the chains gives it edge. FYI when I click on your profile it has your blog link linking to a non active blogger blog. I still found it in your description but thought I would let you know. I’ll make sure to check out those other blogs #10 has me just at it!s name.

  3. Hi Megan!
    Thank you so much for the award! Haha..a hot mamma? Made my day! 🙂
    I can see how a lot of women would get outfit inspiration from you on a daily basis…it’s like having a personal stylist, for free!! 🙂

    1. I know, sorry! It’s been in my head all day. Do you remember the scene from Notting Hill when the seasons are changing and Hugh Grant is walking down Portabella Road? One of my favorite movies of all time! 🙂
      Thanks for stopping by!
