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.
