Blazers and Shorts. Woot.

Blazer: c/o Daisy Rae Boutique (similar #1, similar #2)  |  Top: H&M  |  Shorts: NY&Co.  |  Wedges: Target (shop)  |  Clutch: DSW (shop, more colors)

Blazers and shorts.  Another combo I lurve.  (That was "love" very enthusiastically, if you didn't catch that.)  Just another reason for me to love blazers.  I've had these shorts for a while, but I couldn't figure out how to make them interesting or stylish.  Left to their own devices, I almost feel like I'm ready for a safari when I wear them.  I think a bright blazer and a contrasting top does the trick, though!  Such an easy way to make shorts look chic.  Blazers and shorts--would you wear that combo?

Have an awesome weekend!  I'm looking forward to whipping our master bedroom into shape!  Yessssssss.

  1. There is something so comfortable about wearing a long sleeved top with shorts! Although it's never cool enough where I am to be able to!

  2. I love the blazer/shorts combo!  In doing some research for fall trends, I saw that short suits are back in for a time.  You rock it, girl!

  6. Your legs are amazing!! And I think those shorts are adorable - I feel like they'd be adorable paired with tights for the fall.

  11. I'm trying to put together clothes for remixable outfits for my upcoming two-week vacation, and will be packing both shorts and a blazer. I'm hoping it will be cool enough in Seattle that my blazer won't be sweltering. Even being a lightweight knit blazer, it is too hot in DC to wear anything in layers at the moment.

  12. Blazers and shorts, heck yes I'd wear that. (: I wear anything that people don't expect to go with a pair of shorts, though! I am in love with the color of your blazer and it plays well with the shorts.

  15. I love the shorts and blazer look on you!  I can never figure out when or where to wear it in my own life, though.

  16. Red is your color! It looks amazing on you! The blazer completely transforms your simple tee and shorts combo into a chic look.

  18. I love blazers!  But now that I think of it I haven't ever worn one with a pair of shorts!  The combo looks really good and I can't wait to try it out!  Thanks for the idea!

  19. Oooh, tights and shorts is still something I have not had the guts to do.  Maybe someday!

  20. My understanding is that it's in the low 70s and sometimes colder in the Pacific Northwest these days, so I don't think it'll be sweltering!  I hope you enjoy the escape from the heat! :)

  21. Omgz I love this clutch.  I stalked it for nearly a year and finally decided to buy it.

  22. I think this is a super chic, awesome summer look, but not something I will ever be able to comfortably wear in a Southern summer :( Guess it's time to move!

  23. Looking adorable as always! I had not worn any of my blazers with my shorts yet...I associate all my blazers with work and who wants to think about work on the weekend!  I need to change my mindset so I get more mileage out of my clothes.
