I love to experiment with clothing that at first sight don’t go together.

How to make your boyfriend blazer look feminine

A girly dress paired with a tougher piece creates a great balance and makes for a chic and polished outfit. I love the fresh colors of the dress and its comfortable, casual fabric. It pairs great with a dressy blazer and heels just as well as with sneakers and a cardigan. The latter was my choice of combination for a company picnic.

I hope you are having a productive week so far! Thank you for stopping by!

    Love the belted blazer and dress, they are a lovely combination together! :) I’ve only worn my boyfriend blazer belted a couple of times, but it’s a great option with dresses!

    I love the unique way you styled this longer BF blazer. It looks like a BF cardigan at first glance. I gotta try this. Gorgeous dress, too.
