Blazer and Jeans Outfits With Embroidered Tops | Weekday Wear Link Up

Two very similar outfits for today's Weekday Wear Link Up as the cold winter weather in Brisbane has me sticking to easily repeatable outfit formulas - even though I wore these for different occasions.


What I wore:

casual office outfit black skinny jeans converse embroidered blouse and blazer love too bag | awayfromblue

Rebecca Minkoff Love Too in deep teal croc embossed leather | awayfromtheblue



Jacketthrifted Zara black blazer
Necklace: personalised gold children's names charm necklace
Blouse: Jeanswest Elise longline embroidered shirt in coconut blue
Jeans: thrifted Jeanswest faded black cropped butt lifter jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
Bracelets: the usual
BagRebecca Minkoff Love Too in deep teal croc embossed leather


Why I wore it:

Another office outfit! It's so strange to have an office day now, but everything aligned for us to all have the team in at the office on this day (even someone from another state!) so we had to take advantage with a big team lunch. I haven't been in the office for a few months. I got sick last time I was in so I've been wary about going in again, but it was good to see everyone face to face. I did worry that I might have dressed down a little too much - I have some very stylish team members and with the Converse and jeans my blazer wasn't quite enough to elevate my outfit to their formal levels of return to office wear, but when my boss turned up in jeans I knew I'd picked well for the day!

The jersey blazer is really cosy and while I considered packing a scarf I didn't need it - the long sleeved blouse underneath was enough to keep me warm. This blouse was definitely overdue another wear, not having been worn in a couple years! I liked the blue embroidery with the deep teal of the Rebecca Minkoff Love Too bag, which is quickly becoming my go-to handbag for office days (as rare as office days are!).

What I wore:

Chloe Marcie medium shoulder bag in nut | awayfromtheblue


JacketJeanswest grey jersey blazer
Tank: Target embroidered khaki tank
JeansNobody Denim Cult high rise skinny ankle jeans in charred grey
Shoesthrifted Adidas Superstar sneakers
Bracelets: the usual
BagChloe Marcie medium shoulder bag in nut


Why I wore it:

Exactly the same outfit formula as the outfit above, this one just shades of grey and a little bit of olive. I felt this was more casual than the one above, maybe because it was a little lighter than the black one above and less-suit like. Wore this for a regular day with the school run, helping out in my son's classroom in the morning, working from home and then a quick errand in the afternoon before a doctor's appointment for the kids after school pick up. They were not very impressed to have to have their flu shots but given flu has been going around the school like crazy it was a good idea to get them protected! They have both sadly caught the flu since, but it hasn't hit them as hard as some others thankfully.

I really liked this olive embroidered tank with the grey jersey blazer, and with the dark grey jeans as well and the black and white Adidas Superstar sneakers I kept the neutral theme going with this neutral brown Chloe Marcie bag, that goes with everything! I really liked the brown with the olive of the embroidered tank too. I don't usually stick with neutral coloured outfits, I like adding pops of colour, but I think this all worked so well.


Last worn: grey jersey blazer, olive embroidered tank, charcoal Nobody Denim jeans, Adidas Superstar, Chloe Marcie shoulder bag.

Other ways to weargrey jersey blazer in the office, olive embroidered tank and shorts, charcoal Nobody Denim jeans worn two ways, Adidas Superstar and dress, Chloe Marcie shoulder bag and maxi skirt.



How You Can Wear It:

Jeans and a blazer is perfect for a very laid back business casual office, or for casual Friday! It's a good choice to wear outside the office too.

  1. I really like your bohemian blouses. I am always a sucker for embroidered details! They look great with your skinny jeans and I always love a jeans and blazer combination. You look fabulous in both outfits!

  2. I can definitely understand why you would be wary about going into the office after that! But I'm glad you were able to see people and it seemed to go well. I love what you wore. It is super stylish but also professional. That embroidered top is beautiful and I love the blazer as well. Love the tank top in the second look as well. What a gorgeous design <3
    the creation of beauty is art.

  7. I absolutely love the combination of the embroidered blouse and the blazer. You look so professional in that styling. The second outfit is lovely as well. Great gray blazer and jeans combo. You look fantastic in both outfits.

    1. I love how a blazer helps dress up jeans like that!

  8. This is a solid formula and a favorite for me on casual Fridays. I love both outfits, but that embroidery top really pops against the navy blazer. It's nice that you can mostly work from home but it's also nice to see your collogue. My husband, like you, will be working from home but every once in a while they gather together. The best of both worlds! Have a great week!

  9. I love both the blazers here, Mica:) I think they're so easy to dress up or down, and totally love how you wore them with sneakers. And yay that the kiddos got their flu shots. I must admit that's one thing I was never consistent with with my own kids, but nowadays, I think they're very important (along with the covid vaccine).
    Have a great week ahead:)

    1. We've always done it every year due to some pre-existing conditions and I'm grateful we did this year too as we ended up catching the flu! :(

  17. Isn't it great how well a blazer can elevate an outfit? You've shown two great ways that this can be achieved.

  18. You look fabulous in both outfits, Mica! The first one has the edge for me, as I love the blazer with the long-sleeved shirt's cuffs peeking out - so good with the Cons! This is a perfect high-low look for the office.

    I like that you did an all-neutral look for your second outfit. Glad the boys got their flu shots (and of COURSE they got the flu right away!), but happy their cases were mild. It's been nice not getting the flu every year!

    1. Yeah we all ended up with the flu so I was thankful we had some kind of protection building for them. First one to catch it was so sick but by the time my other son caught it he'd had more time to get an immunity so wasn't so bad thankfully!

  19. I love how your boss showed up in jeans too!! That blouse for work is definitely fabulous.

  20. I like the combination of sharp cut blazer with the relaxed feel of the jeans. Your handbags are a delight, Mica. Have a nice week, hope it's warm where you are, we are freezing here in Sydney :)

  24. embroidery always adds a lot in terms of style to me. Your first top looks fantastic, I'd gladly wear it. I love how relaxed yet collected your outfits are today - it is definitely a rare feat.

  27. Hi Mica,
    I really like the first outfit as I think I am drawn to the dark colours. The embroidery is cute for any office day. Have a great weekend : )

  28. I love both your outfits but the first one is my fav. Black blazer is such a classic and the embroidered blouse is so pretty. Going to office after long time seems a bit odd, but it is also feels good to meet people. We had been to Geneva last couple weeks. It was a fantastic trip we went to so many places. :-)

  29. Hello,
    My favorite look is the first one, I think it's more elegant and very well dressed to meet all your coworkers at the office! As for the second, being the same formula, I don't really like the color chosen!

  41. I love the look of a blazer dressed down with sneakers, both of these combinations are so cute! I bet it was strange being in the office after so long. I've also only been back a couple of times and it's so different, when we go back more regularly (next month, maybe) it will be kind of hard to adjust!
