Today’s look was inspired by Marionberry Style’s Trend of the Month Link-up, with this month’s challenge being bold stripes. This blazer has the boldest stripes in my wardrobe, and I colorblocked from there, with navy tights and grey pencil skirt. I added a pop of color with my fuchsia tank top.

Here’s another way that I’ve paired up my striped jacket and grey Mary Jane pumps, seen earlier this fall:

    I’m surprised at how versatile this striped blazer is turning out to be!
