If there is one element an article of clothing can have that sends me into full out purchase mode it is this: wear-ability. More times than not when I am purchasing clothes I know it will end up being a “discussion” with my husband. Because of this I have learned to always keep some ammunition in my back pocket that I can whip out at a moments notice. The ammo typically ends up being how often I can wear said item. Here’s what I’ve learned over the years…if you can wear whatever it is you are buying for both work and play, it’s basically like getting the thing for 50% off. At least that’s what I’m sticking with.
When I found this great blazer from Gracie B, I knew I could justify it by it’s insane wear-ability. Work, play, dinner out, business meeting, eating nachos at a basketball game (one of my favorite hobbies thank you very much), posing in front of your front door, you name it–it can be worn for it.
Here is my “play” look. Statement necklace, cami, jeans, and heels. Bam.
While on the subject of clothing, can I please direct your attention to this cardigan and this cardigan? #want #need #now. I am not sure if you have ever shopped at Gracie B before but they are quickly becoming one of my favorite online boutiques. Not only are their prices affordable, they truly offer unique items you don’t find anywhere else. It’s like walking into your favorite downtown whimsical boutique right on your computer. Check them out now for some great gift items for either yourself or somebody on your shopping list!

If there’s one thing the LIY Team did this Summer [besides go for boat rides and drink seltzers] – it was read. Audio books, Kindle editions, good old fashion physical copies… you name it, we read it. While we went through a few that weren’t so great, we did find a few worth passing along! […]
