Navy Catherine Malandrino Jumpsuit{ZARA Tweed Blazer, CATHERINE MALANDRINO Jumpsuit, AMERICAN APPAREL Leather Clutch, 3.1 PHILLIP LIM ‘Martini’ Heels}

Every year, Zara comes out with the most amazing blazers at pretty reasonable prices. This year was no exception, so I treated myself to this gorgeous blue tweed version with jeweled buttons. It’s perfect for dressing up or down and also has a matching skirt (which I’m kicking myself for not getting). Today I paired it with my beloved navy jumpsuit that’s been my trusty companion on numerous trips over the past year or two. It’s literally the perfect travel outfit since it’s as comfy as a pair of pajamas and rarely requires ironing.

About the Fit
The blazer fits true to size, and the sleeves were a perfect length on my 5’7″ frame. I probably could’ve gone down a size in the jumpsuit, but I wanted a drapier fit to maximize comfort while traveling. This is probably one of the most versatile pieces in my wardrobe, and I’ve also worn it sneakers and a jean jacket for casual weekend outings. If it came in multiple colors, I’d stock up in a heartbeat.

It’s been ages since I’ve taken classes, but there’s just something about fall that makes me wanna embrace classic schoolgirl style. When I spotted this sweater at Zara, I fell in love instantly. And after poking around online, I just learned that it also comes in black! I can’t wait to style it up with different looks this fall. This time around, I paired it with a feminine and slightly preppy little black dress with contrasting collar. I think it’ll look equally fetching with jeans and a pair of sleek loafers for running errands over the weekend.

About the Fit:
This is your standard slightly oversized boyfriend-fit cardigan. I went with my regular size, and it fits just right. I love that it’s roomy enough to layer without being to boxy or bulky. While I do love the style of this dress (I also have it in burgundy), the fabric is a little thin and the top portion is a bit too roomy in the shoulders for my liking. It’s passable with a sweater or blazer layered on top, but could definitely stand some alterations in the arm hole area.

It’s hard for me to resist a bold stripe, so I knew I had to have this dress as soon as I saw it. This is one of the funnest (pretty sure that’s not a word, but stick with me) pieces in my current rotation. I paired it with matchy-matchy red shoes and bag, along with copious amount of pearl accessories.

About the Fit:
This dress runs very true to size and has a slightly fishtail hem that provides a little extra coverage in the back. It’s more of a trapeze shape with no waist line, which means you’ll have to cinch it with a belt if you want more definition. I’ve worn it that way as well and love how it looks. I opted to skip the belt on this particular occasion because I knew I’d be sitting at a desk all day and wanted to be comfy. If the red is a bit bold for your taste, the dress also comes in hunter green and is just perfect for this time of year.
