a classic pinstripe blazer and skinny jeans

we kicked off the week talking about how to wear a blazer this summer. we’re continuing with that trend today:  we’re featuring a classic pinstripe blazer and skinny jeans.  i’m tapping into my inner prep today—my favorite style—because i’m feeling particularly good.  the sun is shining, summer is here, but even most importantly, so is my family.  a lot to still be thankful for.   

a classic pinstripe blazer

it feels good to put on a pair of jeans and a blazer.  it really does.  today, i’m featuring a pinstripe blazer from Ann Taylor.  i’ve paired it with a flutter sleeve shell also from Ann Taylor.  the colors are a subtle neutrals with visual interest created by the pinstripes.  layering is useful even during the summer months:  going inside into an air-conditioned room for the warmth of the sun can be a sharp contrast.  and a sleeveless shirt with a blazer is a great way to combat the temperature change.

and skinny jeans

i’m loving these luxe high waist skinny jeans from Nordstrom.  they’re new, soft, and so comfortable.  i generally minimize the number of times i wear jeans during the summer, but i can see myself reaching for these on the regular.  they stay cool even on the hot summer days we’re now seeing in Athens.  if you love jeans, but tend to avoid them in the summer, i’d still recommend a pair of these.

summer is for sandals

i love espadrilles.  and these Verla platform sandals from Nordstrom pair perfectly with these ankle jeans.  keeping with the neutral theme, i’ve accented my OOTD with this leather bucket bag.  leather accessories are always a great way to give an outfit like a classic pinstripe blazer and skinny jeans that extra bit of class.

    I love the crisp look of blazer and jeans but when the real feel temps are triple digits it’s hard to wear extra layers. I like the notion of unlined linen and sleeveless shell.

    Neutrals are beautiful. I don’t own a pinstriped blazer. I can see how I should get one in neutral stripes. You look stunning in this outfit. It’s amazing how well you and your home are coordinated together. 🙂

    Oh Beth you got me! I adore all of your outfits but this one bowled me over! I have lost about 40lbs to date and am down to a size 14! I have ordered the jeans and the top. I have the grey denim jacket from Talbots and a pair of wedges coming from Vionic so I think it will work. BTW – my first Ann Taylor purchase – I’m generally a Talbots girl. Looking forward to my new outfit!

  8. I love a blazer, especially with a bit of a nipped waist and a hint of a shoulder pad. Or, a little more casual, similar to yours.

    Good post, as always. thanks

    You look great Beth! I am loving blazers lately! How do you like your hair?! I just noticed how long it is! It looks fabulous, what a sharp style.

    This looks put together and versatile. I like those sandals with it. And I like your hair longer. I’m realizing since my hair is growing out that I don’t actually have all that much gray yet. A few strands of gray, but I was expecting it to be all over. I’m 65, and I was kind of hoping I’d find it was all silvery and white-ish but it turns out it’s barely gray. I’m honestly sort of disappointed. I may just let it grow out and start thinking about letting it be natural. Amazing what a pandemic can do to one’s attitude, eh?! hahaaaa.
