Loft's corded striped blazer + Leigh dress

Leigh dress in black (size 6): J.Crew Factory, sizes pop back here
Corded dobby striped blazer in royal blue (size 6): Loft, here
Black leather pumps:  Nine West
There aren't many wardrobe staples that are more classic than a simple black dress and a strand of pearls.  I'm so happy I picked up this Leigh dress in both blue and black.  I hesitated on the black one because we all know my color addiction.  But it's a staple I will have in my closet for years, so I figured that even if I only wear it a few times a year it's worth the investment.  Especially considering I didn't pay more than $50 for it!  I just love how well the Leigh dress defines the waistline.

To add a little zest to the outfit I topped it with this striped blazer from Loft.  Why did I wait so long to jump on the striped blazer bandwagon?  LOVE it.  The fit is great, TTS, it is fully lined, and the material is very nice.  I paid around $40 for it in-store.  It's a great lower-price option compared to the striped blazers at J.Crew, and I couldn't be happier with it. 

Hope you have a great weekend!  It's chilly here today but the sun is shining so we're off to cheer our little boys as they play in their baseball games.
