The other half of Lavendar





Blazer- old   option   option   option
blouse- Loft via Poshmark  option     option
necklace- Banana Republic (old)  option   option
shoes- Banana Republic   option   option
 
This blazer is the other half of the matching suit set I talked about here. The one that taunts me. So I put the blazer in my spring capsule. It's my challenge piece. I like this pairing better than the last couple of times I tried to wear it. I've also cut off the inside buttons and tabs. It just didn't look good buttoned and the buttons/closures looked silly dangling unbuttoned.
 
The silver shoes were an impromptu add on. I had planned to wear nude shoes because of the pattern and all the colors here but I was in a hurry and found these first. I thought, lavender, blue, silver- that could work so on the feet they went and out the door I was.

Hot pink



 
Blazer- Banana Republic via Thred Up  option  option
blouse- JCPenney  option
pants-Loft  option
necklace- online boutique  option
shoes- JCPenney  option
 
I believe my formula for spring/summer is truly going to be black, white and a pop of color. At least for this capsule. It's been the formula for the week.
 
I scored this blazer on Thred Up for $25! I never saw it go below $70 when it was available on the Banana Republic site in my size. I was excited to find it because my hot pink blazer really needed to be replaced.

Black, white and a pop of color




Blazer- Forever 21  option  option  option
blouse- JCPenney
pants- Gap
shoes- Belk option
necklace- Lulu's  option
 
I love black and white with a pop of color. You've seen me use this formula many times and you will see it again.  The blouse is a recent purchase, prior to the capsule. But let me say, I'm not limiting shopping during the capsule. If I see something at a good deal that will work year round or going forward to summer, I'm purchasing it. In fact, I bought three more pairs of shoes lasts week. Oh my! Two of them are comfort flats for running through the airport. Yep, I'm on a work related trip and I'm not so airport savvy. I've also got a short time frame on arrival from the conference to the return take off, so I needed some comfortable flats that would pass as business casual. I may be in an all out sprint once I clear check in. Fingers crossed and lots of prayers please!
 
Back to the outfit- I promise this blazer is coral. The last couple of times I've photographed it, it appears more pink. But I promise there is an orange tint there. And I didn't do a good job of capturing the necklace, it's best seen here.

So the post title is a bit cheesy, but if you look through the list, you'll see that two of items came from Target. I'd almost bet you could create this whole outfit from Target items. Anyway, this floral top is perfect for spring. I got lots of compliments on my cardigan/top combo at work last week.
