Tried & Tested: Body Central's Boyfriend Blazer & Gold Leaf Dangling Earrings



Body Central styled this blazer casually in their spring catalog -- pairing it with jeans and rolling the sleeves up to reveal contrasting striped lining -- but I chose to wear mine with a silk shell, velvet pants, and black pumps.






The well-cut blazer features a notch lapel, single-button front closure, and puffed shoulders (for a bit of femininity).




Later in the week, I paired the leaf earrings with my favorite orange shirtdress. The earrings are really lightweight, and didn't make my ears tender like large-ish earrings normally do. They also occasionally clinked together and chimed, creating soothing noises throughout the day.



The verdict? Both items are worthy style steals, with the blazer priced at $26.90 and the earrings costing just $6.00!



S.S.W. Asks: Have you shopped Body Central's spring collection?

I have a blazer problem. It's more of an obsession, really. Like, I have about 33920 of them. And I always want more.
See? Obsession.

Wow, that blazer looks fantastic! I have a terrible time finding blazers that fit without needing serious tailoring. Maybe I'll give this one a shot! My ears aren't pierced, but earrings like that always make me wonder why I don't take the plunge.
