In February, our theme for The Good Buy/Good-Bye Book was knit dresses. And I showed my knit dress with a blazer and sneakers on my dear friend Shelbee her blog. So for those who haven’t seen it yet: here it is on my blog! It’s not a very thick knit dress. But a very nice one. The length and color are good and the knotted part on the belly is very nice to camouflage something. Because knit dresses can really be not so flattering.
Blazers and sneakers are a very good combination
If you like contrasts, like I do. For me a outfit is working when there is classic style in it with something modern, or something cool. Like a blazer and sneakers, a blazer is kind of a classic and sneakers give any look a modern twist. Can you think of anything that doesn’t look good under a blazer with sneakers? I can’t.
I am wearing a blazer over my knit dress that I wear not often enough. And it’s a really nice one, I think it’s the colour. Only would look good on me if my face is been sunkissed. I’m really in love with the blazers from Zara. How shit Zara always is with the sizes, those of blazers are perfect! The shoulder pads are always good and most blazers have beautiful buttons. The sneakers are old ones, I love them because they have golden stripes!
Blazer and sneakers on a knit dress
I am wearing a gold necklace and a beautiful gold and brown bracelet with this blazer and sneaker outfit. And earrings that Gerben gave me for Christmas. While sitting in my living room, typing this, I hear lot’s of birds outside making noise. It means it’s warming up! Spring is in the air!
With me it is always the case that I get cold very quickly, so taking photos in winter is not really my hobby. But what’s even more annoying is that it can also be seen in my face straight away. Add to that the many crying parties about my father’s passing and you get this. I look terrible! So keep in mind that it’s all about the outfit. And I hope you like it. Do you wear the combination of blazer and sneakers often?
I would really appreciate it if you would follow me on Instagram.

Nancy, I like your idea of mixing an item with a classic style in it with something modern as you’ve done with this ensemble. You look fabulous, both chic and fun. I especially like the crossover detail at the waist of your dress. Thanks for hosting and I hope that you have a restful weekend.
Thank you very much Rena! Have a good weekend!
Love the detailing on that dress and I just wore a blazer like that today in fact!

Looking forward to see it Jennifer! Thanks.
I love this look Nancy! The blazer and knit dress were meant for each other and love the gold jewelry. Thanks for the link up!
Thank you very much Kathrine!
I know what you mean about outdoor photos when it’s freezing. My face is immediately red from the cold and my eyes are watery. Love this chic outfit formula! Such a fabulous look!
Jill – Doused in Pink
Yes my eyes too! It’s time for spring isn’t it Jill?
I like the mix of white and brown always elegant. You look amazing.
Thank you Melody!
I love this combination and I think I will put together some blazer and light jacket ootd next week. I am finding that having a theme for my week helps me not want to shop. i might just copy this outfit too!
Thank you very much Mireille.
Nancy, this is a gorgeous look on you! I love the shiny gold touches in your accessories and on your sneakers-so chic! It is great to find that the blazers at Zara are always a hit and the fit is dependable every time you order. Enjoy your weekend and thanks for the link up party!
Thank you very much Di. Enjoy your weekend.
I like that outfit so much! You look great!
Thank you Mira!
You wear this so well hunny, I love that colour dress and it looks perfect with the trainers. Jacqui
Thank you Jacqui!
This is one of my favourite outfits of yours. Love the jewellery too. My condolences for the loss of your Father. Wishing you peace and strength.
Thak you very much, I appreciate that.
This combination looks great on you! The skirt/dress + sneakers looks silly on me, I think, but I do like blazer + sneakers with pants. I should try it with my white sneakers! I am sorry for your loss and wish you the best.
Thank you very much Sally, that is very kind of you!
That’s such a gorgeous dress, Nancy, and you DON’T look terrible at all. I always tend to think the same when I’m feeling a bit down in the dumps, which I often do this time of year. I guess we are all ready for Spring! xxx
Yes we are! I want to feel the sun! Thanks Ann.
You do not look terrible! You look lovely and I actually don’t often think to pair blazers with sneakers but I’ll definitely give it a try.
Thank you Joanne.You should!
A blazer, sneakers, and dress is one of my favorite combinations. It looks great on you!

Thank you very much Emma!

Thank you very much Laura! Have a great weekend.
I really love this outfit combo – this knit dress looks amazing with your white blazer and sneakers!

Thak you very much Amber.
Nancy, I think the contrast between your dress, blazer, and jewelry makes such an interesting look! You always look so good in gold!! Thanks so much for the link party! Enjoy your weekend!
Oh thank you very much Marsha! Have a good weekend.
I said it before and I’ll say it again, that knit dress is superb because of that waist detail. And I adore the blazer too. Heck, you could always just toss a scarf around your neck to have a better color near your face??
I know Jodie!!! When I looked at the photos I thought of adding a scarf!! Oh, same old same old. And I had such a perfect one for this outfit….
Oh, Nancy, this has to be one of my favorite looks of yours EVER!! I remember that you once shared that you didn’t wear jeans or tennies much. But have recently incorporated both into your closet and wardrobe. I am a huge fan of wearing tennies with dresses. And I love the way you have paired a structured piece like the blazer with the fun of the white athletic shoes. You just look amazing. And I am going to try to recreate this look. My only worry is my blazer has probably become too snug. Time to start eating better!!
Oh I do love to wear sneakers now and yes, I am starting to like denim too! Spring is comming so salads are more on the menu!
I like how this can be casual enough for a day at the shopping mall or you can flip on some heels and have it be fancy enough for a formal work event.
How do you keep your knit dresses in shape? I feel like knit always looses shape.
Thanks hun. Depends on what knit you have. I think the bulkier ones loode their shape a lot.
I love the sneakers with blazers too, but don’t think to pair them sometimes with a dress. Love this look and agree, Zara makes some of the best blazers, I just bought one in fuscia pink.
Have a great day!
Thanks Jess, fuscia pink sounds fabulous!
Oh, Nancy, I am so sorry to hear of your dad’s passing. *hug* Cry as much as you need to, honey.
You look fabulous in this outfit – I think a blazer goes with EVERYTHING! The gold accessories are perfect!
Thank you very much Sheila!
Darn computer problems made me late to check out your post! I love this look on you Nancy and it’s one I’d wear in a heartbeat. The dress flatters your figure and the blazer is a great addition, the sneakers are stylish and comfortable – LOVE!!!
But it is so kind of you to take the time to still visit, thank you Kellyann!
You look fab not terrible. Love the sneakers with the dress and blazer. Big hugs x.
Thank you Hilda!
That dress is gorgeous, Nancy, especially the detailing at the waist. I love the colour too, it goes so beautifully with the white blazer. I’m not a big wearer of blazers because I always feel a bit overdressed in them.
P.S I’m so sorry to hear about your father xx
Thank you very much Suzy!
This is a fabulous outfit, Nancy! I love the sneakers and dress combination as well as the blazer and sneakers combination. Such a cool and classy modern style. I also really like this color combination. You look wonderful as always, my friend!
Thanks! I was very pleased with this look!
