In Short Supply

Source: tumblr.com via Sunny on Pinterest



I have to admit that I'm not a fan of wearing a traditional suit, which unfortunately my job occasionally requires. I find most suits to be boxy and very unflattering on me. For slightly more casual work environment where well tailored shorts are acceptable, I love the idea of using those shorts paired with a sophisticated blazer to create professional outfits that are less uniform and demonstrate more personality.
I love how this peach blazer compliments the tan shorts without being too matchy-matchy. Paired with a cute floral blouse and mostly neutral accessories makes this look very professional looking.

Over the last year or so I have developed a huge love of all things from ChloƩ and this beautiful nude blazer is no exception. However, the attached price tag is too steep for most budgets. I recommend checking out : Zara for some beautiful, high quality chic blazers for a fraction of the price.

The girl above looks amazing and her look is extremely easy to copy. I love how easily this look can pull double duty by going from the office to hanging out with friends on the weekend.

If you are going to be running around from meetings to meetings with clients all day cute flats are definitely the way to go, especially when they provide a beautiful pop of color. I love combining colors. Plus, there is no way anyone can deny the adorable poodle pattern on the blazer.
