The Perfect Spring Blazer.

Top: LOFT {in-store only, very similar online here} // Blazer: LOFT {in-store only, very similar online here} // Jeans: American Eagle Outfitters // Shoes: Steve Madden // Belt: {old} // Sunglasses: Le Chateau {Canadian store} // Necklace: Talbots {similar here} // Ring: HJ Greek // Nails: Sally Hansen Hard As Nails in No Hard Feelings // Lips: Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter in Lollipop 

     A couple of weekends ago, I enjoyed my first visit the Charlotte Premium Outlets with some other Charlotte and North Carolina bloggers (read more about that here!). I ended up finding some spring pieces that I loved at LOFT, including this gorgeous top and fun blazer! They pair so well together, and make up a perfect casual outfit. You could also pair them both with a skirt and heels for more of a business casual feel. The blazer is actually made of such soft and comfortable fabric that it doesn't even feel like you're wearing a dressier coat- the first thing that I thought when trying it on in-store is "This seriously feels like a blanket" - haha!

     Both of these LOFT pieces are unfortunately in-store items only, but there are similar items to both the blazer and top that can be found on the website. LOFT frequently has online sales, so they will be marked down often! 

      What is everyone's week looking like? This week for me is one of those ones that I don't know how I'll survive it, and unfortunately the weekend is looking to be just as busy! It is Greek Week at my school, so my sorority has competition events with the other Greek organizations at my college every night this week. And on top of this, it's also Spring Initiation week for my sorority, so we have our own ADPi events that are separate from Greek Week as well! And for school: I have a video project due on Tuesday, and the first run-through of my Capstone presentation on Wednesday. Eeek! The best way to keep up with me this week is by following me on Instagram and Snapchat @miss_alk
