If you live anywhere down south, you already know that you don’t get to wear winter pieces very long, or very often really. I fell in love with this plaid blazer the moment I saw it, and I knew I had to figure out a way to wear it before it got cooler.

Houston Fashion blogger Uptown with Elly Brown shares how she wears a Plaid Blazer and a list of her must read books for the girl boss.

I’ve never really worn shorts with a blazer. To be honest, I get confused when I see sweaters worn with flip-flops. But now I get it; when you love something, you’ll make it work…like I did with this blazer, lol!

Plaid is huge this season, and I am pretty sure I officially own more than 5 pieces of plaid including this plaid blazer. I love the inspired menswear look this blazer has, it’s also oversized, and has shoulder pads #hello1980. I can not wait to wear it more often as the season comes and goes.

Let’s talk about this crossbody bag for a second. I LOVE this pink blush crossbody bag from Senreve, it’s 100% made in Italy (Genuine Italian leather), stain-resistant micro-suede interior, and scratch- and water-resistant leather on the exterior. Bonus points that this crossbody can be worn 4 different ways, over-the-shoulder (with a leather or chain strap), crossbody(with a leather or chain strap), clutch, and has a wristlet. Talk about versatile🙌🏼!!

Senreve is a new brand to me, but overall I adore the minimalistic approach they have to their designs and their bags. It’s worth every penny great and great quality bag. I’m very impressed!
