#BUILDYOURWARDROBE ...Do you own a blazer?

The #buildyourwardrobe series is a six week series where 6 bloggers including myself are going to focus on a staple piece for your wardrobe. Week  one was the LBD and week two concentrated on the White Shirt. 

This is week 3 for the Build your wardrobe series and your hostess is Erica Bunker. Make sure you check out her post and her take on why you should own a blazer.  If you don't have a blazer as a staple piece for your wardrobe, you should get off this computer riggghhhttt now and go purchase one! Just kidding you don't have to go get one right now but in the near future. Erica posted a blazer that she made using Simplicity 1421 and if you have been following me you know that is the same blazer that I used for my sew-a-long. I love this pattern and I have made two more since my sew-along [none for myself mind you] and I am working on a third one made from re-fashioned denim. This is definitely my go-to pattern for a quick blazer.

I have put together a few blazers that were inspiring to me and hopefully they will give you some ideals on how to style a blazer.[The photographs were via a google and pinterest search, I do not claim to own these photographs unless otherwise noted.] You will find a familiar one in the mix though.
My African Print suit and  the inspiration suit
These African print blazers are by Yetunde Sarumi

The blazer pictured above is a stenciled DIY blazer which can be seen HERE

The Yellow blazer bottom right was made by Hila over at Saturday Night Stitch

Happy blazer shopping or happy sewing which ever it may be, just make it so! LOL!!
[Stay tuned for the finale with week six, that is my week and I will be presenting The Dress Pant.]
