As it is rather a grey and chilly day here today, I am definitely typing this one as a bit of a heads up to those of you in the Northern Hemisphere. Hey there! These photos were taken a couple of weeks back, which was still mid-winter but it was nice and warm. Unlike today! I just wish I could be wearing a cute shorts suit today! Instead, I am layered up nice and cosy and avoiding what will definitely be a stormy afternoon. So, if it is warm where you are, enjoy it for me.
THE CHIC SUMMER SHORTS SUIT
Let’s talk about the summer shorts suit. Not something I feel a few years back I would have been so keen on! Now though, I am loving the combination of a chic pair of shorts (generally high waisted) and a clean, minimal strappy sandal. Add a blazer to match or a nice light knit or chic blouse and you have a chic look for heading out or if you are lucky enough, heading into the office. Most workplaces are probably not caught up on the chic-ness of a short suit just yet but I feel they will get there.
Right, so what have we here? I am wearing a pair of shorts from Everlane, which are on sale right now. The blazer, which I talked about last week, can also be seen styled back here for reference. These shorts? They are down to $41 USD and also come in black. I opted for dusty pink because though I would probably wear black shorts, I didn’t need yet another black blazer. And I wanted a matching set. The fabric is a drapey, comfortable lyocell, which can be machine washed.
If not a strappy heel, I would pair these with a white sneaker, block-heeled mule, or a simple slide.
Tell me below if you would wear a shorts suit? I am off to make a cup of tea before I buckle down to draft another blog post for this coming week. xx
