Happy Monday! I’m tickled pink today because my son Daniel and I drove from Georgia to Ohio yesterday drenched in beautiful sunshine. Yay! And it was warm enough for us to sit on our back deck when we arrived home. Of course, today the clouds are back, but I am encouraged that spring is on the way. And I’m sharing all the reasons I love a white blazer for spring and summer. PLUS, you’re not going to believe where I got this amazing white linen jacket!
Everything in today’s outfit is from Target. I’ve put together an eclectic, interesting and very contemporary business casual look completely with pieces from Target. And each piece is versatile and easy to combine with other things for additional stylish outfits.
Unfortunately when I started looking for this feminine floral puffed sleeve sweatshirt on the Target website, I couldn’t locate it. If I find it sometime today, I’ll link it. Meanwhile, I thought we’d just shift our focus to the beautiful white linen blazer instead.
These cotton cropped pants are the same ones I shared in this previous post. They’re 99% cotton and fit so nicely. Yes, they’re very casual pants, but can easily be dressed up for a casual business vibe. For instance, this look is perfect for a semi-professional conference, a casual Friday in the office or a professional appointment.
Okay, back to the main attraction: that white linen blazer!
My white linen blazer was definitely one of my favorite purchases of 2019, and it was a good bit more expensive than this one. That’s why I think this A New Day cream linen blazer from Target is such a great find. It’s a classic cut, somewhat long and completely lined blazer. It has a traditional lapel and two front buttons with a vented back.
Check out how I wore my white blazer in the following posts:
A white linen blazer can dress up a basic tee and jeans, but it also pairs beautifully with colorful blouses, animal print or spring and summer dresses.
This white linen blazer from Target runs true to size; I’m wearing my usual size 8 comfortably.
By the way, my shoes and handbag are both from Target, too. The shoes are no longer available, but these are similar and the same brand. The grey handbag is also available in other pretty colors for spring.
Again, I regret that I couldn’t find the link to my puffed sleeve sweatshirt. But alas, the linen blazer really is the star of the show. And it’s such a great investment for spring and summer.

Blessed for My Day
Everyone deserves a little R-E-S-P-E-C-T. Not because they or we have done anything to deserve it, but because God has made us each in His image. We are made in the likeness of our Creator. Male and female, He made us. And in creating us, He gave us value, worth.
As we go about our day, let’s remember to show respect to one another. Let’s listen attentively, look each other in the eyes, call each other by our given names, speak kindly and wait patiently. And let’s resist the temptations to roll our eyes, dismiss with frustration, scoff or use sarcasm. It’s so easy to fall into the trap of treating others with disrespect. But our Creator calls us to a higher level of conduct than that. How will you give someone a little more R-E-S-P-E-C-T today?
Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. ~ Genesis 1:26-27
