Fall Essential: Red Blazer & Thursday Moda Linkup

Many of you know that my day job is a corporate gig in a major retailer in Seattle (you can look me up on Linked In, I don't hide). While most days I can wear business casual to casual outfits, sometimes I have supplier meetings or large group presentations that call for more formal business attire. On those days, I wear outfits like the one I am featuring today: a little black dress with a pop of color and print in the form of a red blazer and leopard pumps. This red blazer is an older piece that has served me well, and I am glad to see that both bright and dark shades of red are back in this fall's pantone colors. What goes with red? Well, leopard, of course, and you already know that these pumps are one of my work wardrobe staples. Together with this classic LBD they create a perfectly polished office look that I am sharing as a linkup co-host today with Ada of Elegance & Mommyhood. We are showing you a couple of ways to style dresses for an office environment, and I hope you take the time to link up an outfit too! Please scroll through for more photos, outfit links, and be sure to check out some new blogs in the linkup.

I am loving all of the red statement pieces in stores and online this fall, especially blazers that can be dressed up or down for work to happy hour and beyond. You can scroll through the widget below to see my favorite red blazers currently available, priced for a range of budgets starting at only $51:

Please be sure to add your office look to the linkup this week, and don't forget to visit a few new blogs today too--you could find your new blogging BFF! I always enjoy reading Ada's blog and getting outfit inspiration from her, especially for office looks, so this week was a perfect theme!

My favorite look from last week's Thursday Moda Linkup was:

 Jill from Doused in Pink

Jill's mixed print dress is so perfect to style this fall. It looks amazing on its own, but has so many layering and accessorizing opportunities too. I can't wait to see how she styles it next.

How would you style a red blazer this fall? Thank you for visiting my blog today, don't forget to find some new blogs in the linkup today, and I hope you have a great rest of your week!
