What Wives Wear Link Up #27 - Blazer & Cords Love

Welcome to the
What Wives Wear Link Up!
Week 27
Welcome back to another week of What Wives Wear! Can you believe it is November? I hope everyone had a great Halloween... the next big event in our household is my daughters 6th birthday that is this month! We are working on making her room over with a 'Frozen' theme and it is going to take all month long... lots of ideas that I need to execute! I have also been enjoying fall, because I finally was able to bring out my cords again... I have several pairs of cords, but my most favorite color is this burgundy pair from Banana Republic Outlet. I also have an identical pair in navy. I styled my entire outfit around these burgundy cords and I plan to style a lot of other outfit ideas around them. 


A lot of details that I did not think would come into play, did by surprise. For instance, when I rolled up the sleeves on this navy blazer, I noticed the navy/white pinstripe pattern. My shirt has a navy/white pinstripe pattern and when I opened the clutch I remembered it also has a navy/white pinstripe pattern! Isn't that crazy in a good way?! 


This blazer is from Banana Republic Outlet, too. I actually passed it up the first time I saw it in the store, even though it was on clearance! The second time I went into the store, it was still on clearance, but my size (S) was sold out! Wah! I HATE when that happens. I tried on the XS and it fit like a glove... so, YAY. I really don't own a lot of blazers, just this navy one and a white one... but, I love them both. I really want to get a 'fun' blazer next, like a fun color or a fun pattern... that is next on my blazer list. :)


If you remember my eShakti dress post (see it HERE), you'll remember A LOT of these accessories from that post. The statement necklace, earrings, snakeskin belt, bracelet and clutch were all used in that post. I love how different these accessories look with a more casual chic look with the cords and blazer.


Here is a flashback from the eShakti dress post. 


I wore my brown riding boots from Gap Outlet with this outfit. I had navy flats from Charming Charlie that I almost wore, but I really wanted to try a pair of boots with this outfit. I loved the end result.


I have two tops that have white/navy stripes. This short sleeved one from ON is my favorite, I love the ruffle and button detail on the front. My other white/navy top is from H&M and has buttons on the bottoms of the long sleeves. You can also see my snakeskin belt from J. Crew Outlet, it was on clearance for only $14!! The statement necklace is also from J. Crew Outlet and was on clearance.


I wore this outfit to church, IHOP (hey, it was my turn to pick and they have the best bowl sized cappuccinos!) and a housewarming party. It was so comfortable, yet I felt dressed up.


This inexpensive clutch was from Charming Charlie... It will have to do until I get myself a GiGi clutch! ;) yeah, I know... NO comparison.
