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!

I love this - so preppy. It's funny, I actually have that bag, blazer and shorts and I never would have thought of putting them all together. Thanks for the inspiration!

Amy said...

Lovin your shorts and blazer combo lady! Those shorts are so adorable. You're right, it's a tricky thing to find a day that accommodates shorts and blazer, but you have done it amazingly well as usual.

I love this look - chic and cute!

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.

Josie said...

You look SO cute! I'm obsessed with that pretty little blazer.

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

Love this look. The cool weather is making me have some questionable outfit choices, personally, but blazer + shorts is an excellent solution.

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

Bella said...

This absolutely wonderful. I wish I could wear short shorts!

rlutz said...

I am so in love with everything you ave going on here! The hat, tweed shorts, blazer, red belt..oh my!!
That bag is timeless chic!

Katya said...

GORGEOUS look. The simplicity (with a little pop of color with the belt) is pretty awesome.

PS. What an awesome thrift find!

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!

Such a darling look, love the blazer!

lol...you look like you are vacationing in the french riveria. are you?

Mommyblogger said...

You look great & so well put together. I love the shorts/blazer combo & your new bag!

Tabitha said...

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

TrophyBoutique said...

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...

Shea said...

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!

Mochachocolata Rita said...

super chic and the perfect outfit for this early fall!

Laura said...

I have always always wanted to pair a blazer with shorts, but could not for the life of me think of the appropriate weather in which to wear the ensemble. Thanks for the inspiration!

Mrs. J said...

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!! :)

StyleIDnet said...

Beautiful outfit. You look great with a hat, love the pop of color of the belt.

Oh man, I think blazers and shorts weather has already passed me by... seeing as it's raining so hard right now I can't even see Brooklyn.

I love this outfit and that bag!

Marie McGrath (The Joy of Fashion) said...

I have some grey shorts that I just don't know how to wear... but now I do thanks to you!!

You have the most incredible style. I really mean it. I get tons of inspiration from your blog. Keep up the wonderful work!
