Denim Blazer and Chambray

Today I am linking up with both Tara at Mix & Match Fashion for her "What I Wore to Work" series and Bri at Work Clothes, I Suppose for her "Third Thursday Threads" series.  I am back to layering for work this week because of our crazy weather here in Seattle.  Last week was sunny with highs in the mid to upper 80's, but this week it can't seem to make up its mind.  I've watched lightning bolts and sheets of rain pass through the city from my desk, intermixed with teasing pockets of sunshine.

A blazer and blouse are components of a pretty basic work outfit, but I like to think that I made it more interesting by layering light chambray under dark denim for a trendy monochromatic look.  Solid and conservative on top, and a great pop of color on the bottom with these bright red cropped chinos.  It is so ME.  I also love how the denim and chambray make my blue eyes look so bright!  Navy smoking flats and silver accessories (including this beautiful blue topaz pendant I recently received from my amazing boyfriend) round out this office look.
