$49.99 from H&M, get it here!

It is officially Fall and that makes me so so happy. I’ve been seeing these checkered blazers everywhere this season, so naturally, I had to have one. This is a trendy piece of clothing, so I didn’t want to splurge a bunch on it so when I found this $50 blazer from H&M I scooped it up immediately. I purchased this in a size 6 since I wanted it to fit a little bit more loose. I’ve linked as many of the pieces as I could find online, and even included some other options at a variety of different price points!

Look 1

This is one of my favorites, everyone has these pieces in their wardrobe to be able to recreate this. It’s just a pair of high waisted jeans, a tank top and the blazer. You can put a pair of booties with this if it’s cooler out, or put it with some heels and you’re ready to go out. My shoes that I styled with this outfit were from Marshall’s a long time ago, I’ve linked a very similar shoe down below 🙂

Look 2

This outfit is so fun, it’s comfy and very easy to recreate. The skirt is from Forever21, the shirt is from a boutique in Birmingham, Caruso Caruso, and I just paired this with my checkered vans. I would keep the skirt denim material if you’re going for a more casual look. For the shirt, any graphic tee will work, I’ve been looking for a vintage tee, but haven’t found one that I absolutely love yet. I will link my exact one, and some similar ones! Also, for my Vans, these are black and TRUE WHITE. All of the ones that are sold in stores are black and off white, don’t ask me why, I have no clue. I had to customize these on the Vans site, they’re more expensive this way, but I love the true white so much more.

Look 3

I liked this look because of the mixture of prints, the dress was simple but still not as boring as just pairing the blazer with a plain black piece. The black booties that I paired it with made it a bit more casual. If the weather was cooler, you could even do a high knee boot here.

Look 4

This look is comfy and professional at the same time. These pieces are a little more pricey, but I’m telling you, you won’t regret it. If i’m paying $45 for a white tee, it’s going to last longer than the $15 ones from H&M that I’ll have to keep replacing, so in my mind, it evens out. These pants are the best thing I’ve ever purchased. They’re stretchy, still professional and they go with almost anything. I’ve put them with heels, flats, sandals, boots, etc. They also come in so many colors – I may or may not have 3 of 7 colors available.

On the fly pant – White tee
