I bought myself a seersucker blazer [with gray and white stripes]. I’ve been trying to incorporate more blazers and office appropriate summer cover ups for the over air-conditioned spaces and this seemed perfect for the summer.¬†I went out to see a play over the weekend and put the blazer on with a black skirt and coral tee.

Reader Request: College Wardrobe Basics

College wardrobe basics capsule wardrobe

Abby e-mailed me this request:

My request would be a post about college and fashion–suggestions, a basic wardrobe guide, anything like that. I don’t know how many college students make up your demographic, but as a college student, I would definitely appreciate some tips on how to maintain a stylish, ‘fresh’ wardrobe while being limited by both closet space and budget.

The timing of this post may be off depending on where you live and when your school gears up, but I wanted to take a stab at this request! read more
