Elongated:

As you know, I love playing with proportions.  I’m genuinely satisfied when pieces hit in the right places and are well balanced.  This outfit is a go-to of mine for a night out with girlfriends.  It’s easy to wear and I can transition some daytime pieces (the blazer and jeans) right into nighttime.  When I’m out during the week I can’t think too much about what I’m going to wear.  I’m usually running around until the last second with work and the kids, so I need to recycle parts of my daytime look.  The perfect way to do this is to invest in a classic navy elongated (aka boyfriend) blazer.  It looks equally cute with a white or gray t-shirt under it during the day, as it does with a sequin cami for night. Swap out your daytime booties or flats for a simple pair of luggage leather heels.  This is the definition of easy dressing that mixes proportions (skinny bottoms with looser top).
