I hope you had a great weekend!  Thanks for all of your kind words of support on Friday!  I love being a part of this community of bloggers.

I'm keeping it short today as I spent this past weekend in Seattle for my good friend's bachleorette party.  I had so much fun hanging out with her and her friends.  Seattle is such a pretty walkable city!  We ate amazing food and drank delicious coffee all weekend.  I can't wait to visit again.  Unfortunately, I'm kind of regretting my decision to take the red eye back (and I haven't even gotten on the plane yet as I'm writing this!).  

I'm back to the classics today as I'm trying to get a few more wears out of my white pants before summer is over.  I wasn't sure how much wear I would get out of this navy blazer when I bought it as I tend to wear more black, but it has been in heavy rotation in my closet, usually to dress up jeans.  

Thanks for reading and have a great day!

  8. I think the navy blazer looks great on you -- fresher than black. Really, the whole outfit is a hit! I love all the shades of blue. Get home safely!

  24. I love the pale blue lace top, very feminine plus it goes so well with the navy blazer. Personally I prefer navy as it's a bit softer than black. Fab shoes plus your famous leopard clutch! you look amazing!

  28. Nothing basic about this great look Nicole! Love the lace paired with stripes. I have a similar navy blazer from J Crew that I always grab when I don't know what color to use. It seems to go with everything.

    BTW, I am hosting my first link up this Thursday and hope you can join me.
