You may be thinking “a blazer in the dead of summer? That’s absurd.” And for the most part, I agree. We’ve been over this but I loathe being hot. Which is why summer is my least favorite season. However, the weather has been kind of wacky in LA and we’ve had some nice cloudy days that call for some sort of jacket. When the weather is a little cooler I often reach for a lightweight blazer.
I found this one at H&M for less than $40!! It’s made of gauzy type material and I think it’s the perfect length if you’re petite, like me. The white screams summer while the subtle black stripes help tie in my top and shoes. My top is actually a tank top so you can easily take off the blazer if you get too warm and you’ll still have a complete outfit. I do however love how a blazer can dress up any look.
I also wanted to rave about my jeans for a second. In the past, I was nervous to order jeans from Zara because every time I did I found that they were way too long and didn’t hit high enough on the waist, for my liking. While perusing the Zara app I came across these labeled “Slim Fit Hi-Rise Jeans” and that description alone compelled me to order them immediately. I love straight leg style jeans but often times they’re too short or they’re too bulky around the leg. To me, these are perfect. They’re long enough to cover the ankles and also flattering on legs and have a nice high rise fit. In my opinion, they look way more expensive than they were!
What do you pair with your blazers?
