Casual Suit: Blazer and Denim Shorts

Forever 21 blazer
Marc by Marc Jacobs t-shirt
One Teaspoon denim shorts
Alessandro Dell'Acqua heels
Balenciaga clutch

A simple way to add some polish to an easy tee and denim shorts look is to throw on a blazer. For this look, I like blazers that are longer and oversized; I keep shorter, structured blazers paired with pencil skirts for work. Though not usually a proponent of heels and shorts, the upward cut of these One Teaspoon denim shorts is even more flattering with a pair of heels.

Btw, early bird gets the worm! Early Access for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale started today - click here to see some of my favorite picks.

  32. I LOVE this look! When I saw it on your ig I was just like "perfection!" So casual/cool/chic. I do like the addition of heels. The heels along with the structured blazer help to feminize and dress up this look a bit :)
