Blazers are one of my favorite pieces of clothing! They make even a simple top look fresh and can work-ify a borderline too-cute-for-the-office look. Although my navy blazer will always hold the top spot on my most-loved blazers list, this striped jacket from this year's Black Friday excursion is a close second. I'm not (too) embarrassed to admit that I am one of the Black Friday nuts who gets to the mall at 4:30am to ensure that I'm one of the first 100 people in line for an H&M gift card. After a 90-minute wait behind 2 girls who came straight from the club to line-jump for their scratch-off card, I was rewarded with a mere $10. (The party girls got $25 - go figure!) Luckily at H&M, ten bucks can go very far. Case in point: this blazer was marked down to a ridiculous $7.95 from $24.95, so it was basically free! It's so cute and versatile that I would have paid full price for it. I wore this blazer-tee-jeans combo to a party with my hubbie and daughter. How do you rock a blazer?

|These jeans are also a Black Friday find. $15 for Levi's! Worth the hour it took trying on jeans to find a well-fitting pair. The Magic of Macy's.|
