I have styled this shiny, olive jacket in previous installments of Emily's Closet and was excited to style it again. I suggested this floral chambray shirt from Banana Republic in a post earlier this year and Emily bought it just before I arrived for my visit. I love pairing a long sleeve shirt under a three quarter sleeve blazer because it lets you enjoy pops of pattern throughout the entire outfit.
Wear to Work: Tuck the chambray shirt into a pair of black or navy trousers and add a belt through the belt loops.
Around Town: Wear with navy or black shorts and sandals. On cooler days, pair with dark wash denim.
Dinner Date: Tuck the chambray shirt into a casual black skirt and pair with black ballet flats.

Emily recently purchased this amazing cobalt blue blazer from Banana Republic and I paired it with practically half her closet. I think everyone should have a brightly colored blazer and cobalt complements so many other hues. Plus, with three quarter length sleeves, this is perfect for spring. I added the teal and white striped tee to add a fresh twist. I love mixing colors that are near each other on the color wheel, such as red and coral, green and citrine, and of course, cobalt and teal.
When I was in Atlanta last month, my sister and I spent an afternoon going through her closet and putting together the pieces she already owns together in new ways. We created twenty-five outfits and this week on the blog I will be sharing five of them. For more looks from Emily's closet, click here.
