work it wednesday: blazer + shorts!

The blazer and shorts look is one that I have wanted to try since spring... but since our spring is so short and our summer has been so hot - I haven't gotten the chance to yet!  Time is running out and I'm hoping to get  few of these looks put together soon.  It's also a great look for summer to fall... so there is still time!  I am still TOTALLY in love with blazers for fall... I'm hoping to add at least one more to my collection.

In the meantime... here is some great blazers and shorts outfit inspiration!




So do you love this look or what!?!? I can't wait to give it a try!

I do love this look and am totally loving the second outfit!! Not at all looking forward to summer being over any time soon but I may as well look forward to some fall looks. ;)

I love all these outfits! The striped shirt in outfit #3 is one of my faves...I have been loving stripes lately.

Question...To carry the shorts and blazer trend into fall, is it weird to wear textured tights (like cable knit) or leggings with the shorts? I don't know if I am brave enough to try it.

oh my goodness, those outfits are so adorable! Blazers and shorts are an excellent combination! You could try it out on a rainy day perhaps, one that isnt steaming hot? love it!

I absolutely love this look! It was something that I tried last year for summer into fall and I got lots of compliments (and saw other people following shortly after!). It's very chic and sophisticated yet casual enough and cool enough. I can't wait for it to get a bit cooler to pull it off again!

When I saw your post today, I thought, "That's awesome! But I could never pull it off." Then I saw Kimmie from Blue Paper Lanterns wearing shorts and a blazer today and now I'm DETERMINED to try it! I'll post links to both of your blogs to show where I got the idea! Thanks for the inspiration (God, I love fashion blogging)!

I do love the blazer and shorts look BUT I like it more on the dressier side than the casual side. That's just my opinion!!
