Workweek Look - Raspberry Blazer

I live in bright coloured clothing and my work wardrobe is no exception. I was in need of a blazer but I knew that the standard black would not work for me. I was looking for a bright colour and something that could be worn in different seasons. I found this raspberry coloured blazer at Banana Republic and I knew immediately it was the one! I have had it a full year now and it works perfectly in the Fall, Winter and Spring! For a big meeting I wore my black Sloan Banana Republic pants, Nine West leopard flats, Target leopard belt, Ralph Lauren Oxford shirt and my Michael Kors Hamilton bag.

One of my favourite features of this blazer is the pinstripe lining, it adds another little jolt of colour!

I love the fit of the blazer and did not see the need to have it tailored. In my experience Banana Republic clothing is more tailored that other brands but I do find that their clothing runs a little small. I love online shopping at BR, they have great online sales, so I make sure to try items on in store and mark down my preferred sizes in the Notes app on my iPhone. This way if something goes on sale I am ready to spring into action!
