You could throw a crisp blazer over a casual tank and jean shorts, and it would instantly pull your look together. A linen blazer is definitely a classic summer piece. How do you style blazers in the summer?

I posted a teaser photo on Instagram a while back of a Givenchy shopping bag, and I’m finally debuting the contents on the blog! Husband gifted me the Obsedia for my birthday while we were in Paris. I’m loving the the delicate pink lambskin with rose gold hardware, and its versatility as there are three ways to wear it.

    You look so pretty as always, Carolyn. I LOVE the blazer, and was expecting it to be some fancy designer that I can't afford, but H&M I can do 😉
