Do you ever rock a leather jacket in place of a blazer at the office? If not, you should try it – right now!

As always, the temptation to pick up a new jacket at Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale hit me, and the deals are so worth it – but I knew that if I couldn’t find a jacket that fit well and was worth the price, I would walk away empty-handed. So when I slipped in the Halogen Zip Front Leather Jacket and it fit perfectly (and I mean perfectly!), I knew I wasn’t leaving without it.

I love that this jacket looks just as at home with a pencil skirt and simple sweater, as pictured at top, as it does with relaxed jeans and booties, directly above. I’ve already paired this jacket with jeans and ballet flats for a flight (I wasn’t shoving that beauty into my suitcase!), and plan to dress it up with shark ankle pants and heels for the office. I love the edge a leather jacket can bring to an outfit – it’s a little unexpected, unlike your standard blazer.

Do you ever wear a blazer to the office? If so, what do you pair it with? I think it’s a fun challenge to play with different textures and silhouettes – pieces like the Halogen Zip Front Leather Jacket give you the freedom to mix and match, both during the workweek and on your off days on the weekend.
