Blazer + Shorts

I've mentioned before that I think shorts and a blazer are one of the most perfect combos, but it's usually tricky to find weather conditions that lend themselves to bare legs and wool blazers, simultaneously.

Since the days are cooling down, but some summer air is still lingering, this is my small window of opportunity for blazers and shorts. I'll probably be wearing them again soon.

Check out the newly thrifted Coach bag, it's in pretty good condition, and I like it. It's certainly not a rare or unique bag (judging by the number of them on ebay) but I rarely turn down a classic leather bag.
And I did go back for the other one, so giveaway for you guys soon!

  8. I like many elements of this outfit. Most especially that coach bag because it doesn't look like coach to much. What a great pairing.

  12. LOVE it! I still have yet to wear shorts with a blazer, but that's because I don't have any appropriate shorts :(

  20. I think that Coach bag was a great find, and I'm sure the thrift store was a lot cheaper than etsy or ebay.

  24. HAHA Lyddie! That's so true about the weather! Because you don't want to 'burn-up' in the jacket, nor do you want your legs to get cold. HAHA I love those tweed shorts and blazer together. And I love that hat!!! You look great girl. The belt gives it just the right color :) Hope you're having an awesome Wednesday!

  35. I couldn't agree more. I absolutely LOVE shorts and blazers, but unfortunately shorts are not allowed at work :(

    ReplyDelete
  36. Yes! I wore a blazer with shorts a few days back, but it got kind of hot, fast. I love the idea, though. Perhaps I will end up wearing tights with my blazer and shorts someday soon if it ever gets cold in Texas...

  37. I think this look is so perfect for the early fall weather, especially with the texture of those shorts. I wish I had a pair like that--I want to recreate your look!

  40. Love this look and only thing I can think of is Gossip Girls. You have the whole chic, preppy and too cool for school vibe going on. I can't believe you found a thrifted Coach bag. I'm jealous!! :)
