Not sure how it happened but the dog days of summer are upon us. A fall season of long sweeping hemlines is almost here. So I'd like to suggest you give one of my summer go-to faves a final whirl: shorts with a blazer. Do it. Now.
The combination is just the right bit of pulled-together, warm weather chic for ladies of a certain age and certain size. It gives those of us who aren't teenagers or size 2s a nice amount of coverage while still showing off the tanned gams. Love love love.
It's a look that can work equally well for day or evening. Shoes make a big difference. Flats skew more day, heels more evening. The material and color of the shorts and the blazer also factor: lighter/matte materials read more day while heavier/sheen-ier materials read evening.
It can be the ideal combo for nights in with girlfriends.
You know those kind of nights you head over to a friend's house for her birthday par-tay.
And she just happens to have rented a bouncy house!!!!
And grown ass adults go apeshit.
So you get the hell out of that HIGH-larious death trap and you end up playing (and sucking at) flip cup.
And then you take out your sore loser, drunken angst on a poor pinata, beating it within an inch of it's life to amass as much candy as you can. Like a pig.
You know those typical adult bday party kinda nights ;)
