{ PERSONAL STYLE } A LITTLE SUMMER PATTERN PLAY...


{ Paige shorts (c/o); Zara top; Zara blazer; Dolce Vita sandals (c/o); Ray-Ban shades; vintage belt. }

Can I just say, I may never put my arms through the sleeves of a jacket again? I love a good cape look these days. And I know I've probably said it a dozen times on le blog by now, but I am utterly obsessed with this Zara blazer. I wanted a white blazer for so long, and now that I have one that I really love, it's become indispensable in my closet.

This is what I wore to work yesterday - am I a lucky girl or what? We have a pretty flexible, "just look stylish" dress code that allows for creativity, open-toe sandals and lots of denim. These little Paige shorts don't get out and about as much as I wish they did, but better late (summer) than never, right? The blues and purples in the floral play nicely with the navy stripes of the shirt and what can I say other than I wear these little DV Dolce Vita flats almost daily, so there they are.

  2. I own a similar Zara blazer and after reading your post, had a mini panic attack bc I could not recall its exact location (just moved and sh$# is everywhere). Found it, thank God. Phew. I adore those shorts with that blouse!
