Fashion Huntress tips:

1) Everyone knows how I feel about blazers, but even I was surprised at how often I wear my black and white blazer! I always say that a black blazer is the most versatile piece, but I think a black and white blazer is a close second! I can’t remember the last time I purchased a blazer anywhere other than a thrift/charity shop. Aside from button downs, blazers are probably the second easiest item to thrift. I like to target a price of anywhere from $3-$10 for a thrift blazer. 

2) The penny skirt returns! I last featured this skirt in winter (photo below). I really love the long length of the skirt because it’s a perfect length for winter and fall, but still versatile enough for a cool summer day. This particular skirt also has a wrap front (also featured below), which makes it particularly versatile for summer, as it adds a little more breeziness to the look.
