Lookbook: Color Blocking Uniform

colorful blazer silk blouse pointy pump outfit

Outfit Details: Madewell blazer, thrifted silk blouse, Gap corduroy leggings, Nine West pumps

Shop: blazer, blouse, pants, pumps

Some days, I get dressed in the dark. Luckily, I have a few personal “uniforms” that make it easy for mindless dressing so I don’t look like a total mess.

This blazer, skinny pant, and pumps combo is one of my tried-and-true looks.

With my current wardrobe, I can pull any item from each category and know that it will go well together for this modern silhouette. When I can do this with the majority of clothes, I’ll have reached closet nirvana.

What’s your personal uniform?

    My uniform is exactly the same, after having experimented a lot with different proportions. I’m aspiring for closet nirvana too and am trying to augment my current wardrobe with the best-quality (and best-fitting) uniform staples that I can get my hands on. I love this outfit on you!

    That’s fantastic idea. I’m currently working on building a more versatile closet. With my current closet, I can look and look and can’t figure what to wear. The purple add the perfect pop to the outfit.

    My closet uniform is similar to yours. Skinny jeans, flats, and a nice flowy top :) Loving the blazer with that pop of purple :)

    I love your outfit! The color of your silk blouse is so pretty and gives a nice pop of color. :) My go to outfits usually consists of a button down blouse or crew neck shirt + skirt or dress pants + blazer or cardigan.

    this is so chic! I love any outfit with a blazer, and this manages to look polished yet casual. I can only wish my closet can reach the same kind of nirvana!

    I love your pumps and the color of the leggings. I’m trying to do the same thing with my closet. So far I’ve managed to streamline my summer wardrobe; all my summer clothes can fit tidily in a little box. I like that you can get dressed in the dark and still put this together =]
