Still feeling extra chilly? We've got a stylish solution you will definitely want to try! Start your week right by sporting your classic blazer with a trusty pair of jeans. This combo has been around for a while now, but we're giving tips on the different ways you can update it while feeling warm and looking totally fashionable. Can't wait to get started? Just scroll below to see the five fun ways you can style your blazer and jeans today!
Take inspiration from the boys and pair together your menswear-style blazer with your boyfriend jeans. To add a feminine touch, opt to wear a bright colored top and some standout wedges.
Don't have your own pantsuit? Try faking it by sporting a blazer and pants in the same color or hue! For a really fresh look, choose to wear both pieces in white and pair it with pastel accessories.
For a more laid-back outfit, go with an oversized blazer paired with distressed jeans. Finish it off with loafers or brogues for a totally trendy look.
Go for the unexpected outfit by matching your classic black and white striped blazer with pastel colored skinny jeans! Make this look appropriate for your internship interview by pairing it with pumps and a satchel.
Want a more vintage-inspired look? Match your oversized olive or nazy blazer with dark jeans. Pair this look with some worn-out booties, a printed button down top, and a leather belt.

We just bought coffee across our village and went back home immediately. This painting made me feel that I'm in a field, just appreciating the beauty of God's creation. Can you imagine the green grass and pink flowers?"
When everything around you suddenly turns dark, the first thing we'd prolly do, as humans, is to find and grab anything that is closest and nearest to us. We'll hold onto them for as long as we can, trying to collect ourselves and gather courage to adjust our eyesights to the pitch black environment that's consuming us minute by minute. And then you'd hear nothing. Your sense of hearing would somehow go off after not seeing anything for quite awhile. You'll let loose. Cry. Panic. You'll be exhausted for fighting your way out. Then just when you're about to stop and give up, you're no longer afraid. There's only this deafening silence and pithole of darkness that's gonna eat you up alive. And surprisingly, you'll make a home out of it.
You'll make a home out of the darkness that when a ray of light suddenly hits you, you'll try to avoid it. You'll try to cover your eyes. You'll try to cover your ears from the voices trying to help you get out of it. You'll try to hide because your mind and body will go against your will to come out and live. Because the darkness that used to scare you, now comforts you in a way you thought has helped you survived life. And you'll try to live. Day by day. In the darkness. Not knowing where to go. Not knowing where to start. Not knowing who is with you. You will try to live until the darkness that once surrounds you is now within you. And everyday, it's gonna be a cycle of subtle torture. But let me tell you a secret. The darkness won't make you whole.
You'll be broken. And in those hair-like cracks, the light will stubbornly fight its way through until it warms you up. Until you realize to check the switch and turn it on. Until you allow other people to help you find your way back in the light. Until you realize you're ready to live in light again. There's a light at the end of this long and dreading tunnel. The only question that matters: will you let them in?
I always thought of life, like a bead where each piece makes it worth sewing together with other piece of beads to make a stronger bond and to create a beautiful result. Today, how do we bond well with different people especially this difficult time? As this day challenges us to a new normal, may we continue to bead along positively with our life.
