Why Not Rock A Blazer – mark. Tipping The Scales Jacket

Rocking Blazer – mark. Tipping The Scales Jacket

Rock a blazer?  Why not!  This time of year, pre-spring if you will, is the perfect time to rock a blazer!  It’s still chilly so a jacket you can wear like a top is the best way to stay chic and warm.  You can rock a blazer with your work wear or your going out clothes which is why the investment is well worth it.  I’m currently rocking the mark. Tipping The Scales Jacket.  It isn’t like anything I already own with it’s take on a tux jacket made more casual with snakeskin print in a more casual material.

I rocked my mark. Tipping Scales Blazer with a black tee and blush columnist pants from Express.  There’s these slight pinky undertones to the grays in the blazer so my blush pants looked killer with it for a wear to work outfit.

For my accessories I went with the Feathered Friend Necklace and Grows On You Bracelet from mark.  These accessories have been in heavy rotation lately!

Green and Gold for St. Patrick’s Day

Luck O’ the Irish to ya this St. Patrick’s Day!  Since St. Patrick’s Day is going up on a Tuesday it’s much more low key, but that doesn’t mean any less themed out!  Wear your green so you don’t get pinched, eat some Irish food and/or hit up a pub!

Word on what to wear:  Green.  Obviously green.  But there are so many chic options now more than the cheesy St. Patrick’s day t-shirt. With the great spring weather we’re having I wanted to wear a bright fresh green color and play up on the fun of the day with window pain ankle pants with glimmering gold accessories.  Express is my favorite for never boring but still legit work clothes hence the Express Portofino shirt (last seen here) with Express Columnist ankle pants (now available in white with black stripes, I think I need those too!).  Topped off with gold pumps (mark.) gold jewelry (mark.), a green and gold mani (Julep) and gold eye with green eyeliner (mark.).

Word on what to do:  Hit up your local pub for happy hour!  Green beer, Irish car bombs, whiskey shots… oooor maybe just some green tea or Irish Breakfasts tea for me.  If you’d rather celebrate at home then make yourself some corned beef and cabbage!  Roast the brisket for about 2 hrs with the last hour throwing in your cabbage, carrots and potatoes.  Easy, filling and festive!
