I love blazers. I am working on owning one in every color and multiple shades in colors I love. They are the best way to take an outfit from evening after work, to office meeting during lunch. I buy most of my blazers from The Limited. They are soft, comfortable and hold up well. Plus The Limited is usually running a sale keeping them under $50. When I feel like splurging or want an edgier blazer, I go to White House Black Market.
Boots : My trusty Sam Eldermans from Nordstrom that I splurged on last year ($150). I only buy shoes that I love and I want them to last, so I have learned that spending a little more usually gives me a pair of shoes that last for years.
