My younger self would tell you suits are terrible and boring. They are for bank managers, and government officials. Now in my thirties, I view suits in a completely different way. They can mean business, but you can also have fun with them. There is no wrong way to wear a suit these days, and I am proving it by rocking an all white suit in a fun casual way.
I am a blazer addict- they are a great way to spruce up a look without a lot of effort. I am wearing a tee shirt and shorts, but the blazer pulls everything together and makes it chic. The Bryant blazer from Lane Bryant has been my go to this year. They have made several different versions (ponte, lace sleeves, off the shoulder), and the fit it perfect. I wear a 18 or 20 in blazers due to my arms and chest, and these give you the room to move around. Nothing worse than feeling restrictive in your blazer. Since this one is lined, I went with a 20. I love the nautical vibes with the gold buttons. Even though this blazer is white, you will definitely see me in it way after summer is through.
Suits can be fun just by adding items with cool detail, like these Allie Scallop Shorts. Suits can read serious, but with pairing the blazer with shorts with cool detailing it makes it casual. I have been a fan of the Allie since their debut last fall, and with them adding new silhouette's, there is an Allie for everyone. The waist band prevents gapping, and these are one of the most comfortable shorts I own. Wearing shorts this length for me was a no no when I was younger, but I am at a point in my life that why should I not wear something I like cause of what someone might say. These are my thighs, and these thick thighs are enjoying their summer in shorts, dresses, and whatever else I want.
I ended out my look with my new sneaker of the summer, all white Nike Blazer low tops. My summer sneaker for the past two summers has been the Adidas Stan Smith, but when I went to get a new pair, they were sold out in my size. So when I was browsing Footlocker for another white sneaker these popped up on sale. They are extremely lightweight and they are very comfortable. Just to avoid a sold out situation, I may buy another pair for next summer...lol.
So lover's what do you think of my casual summer time look?
