Shorts and a Blazer at a Bouncy Birthday

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.

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 ;)

I love that!! Perfect kind of party for adults who are still kids at heart.
I've been wanting to try out the shorts with blazer trend. The closest I've gotten is a cardigan. It is way too hot and humid to think about this, but I'll definitely give it a try when the weather is cooler. And perhaps I'll finally get the nerve to try shorts and tights together.
