Mutual Inspiration: Pattern-mixing a striped blazer

Continuing the double whammy of style inspiration with Erin @ Loop Looks through our “Mutually Inspired Series“… have YOU been inspired yet? 🙂

Inspiration, Day 3:

This time, I chose an inspiration board from the first post of Erin’s “You Pick Wednesday” series. And that post stemmed from my own question submission (!) about how to wear a striped blazer, which I had just picked up on clearance last summer at the Gap.

So I took inspiration from Erin’s suggestions to pair this striped blazer (last seen here) with a bright color (pink) and a patterned scarf. I didn’t have any floral patterns that looked right with the stripes, but I chose this basket-weave pattern instead because of the thin bits of navy throughout. I also wore berry flats to tie in more with the pink sweater.

For a more casual day at work, I felt cute and colorful. Thanks, Erin!
