Blazer and shorts

What to Wear to a Sporting Event

1.STATE Chiffon Inset Camisole in White / J. Crew Sophie Open Front Sweater Blazer in Heather Khaki / AGOLDE Parker Vintage Loose Fit Cutoff Shorts in Rock Steady / KAANAS Recife Bow Sandals in Nude / Ray-Ban Original Aviator / Daniel Wellington Classic Petite Mesh Watch in Rose Gold

 

The heatwave finally broke here in Boston and I am here for it. Bring on the cute booties, cozy layers, and the ability to commute to work without sweating my ass off. Let’s not forget how much more enjoyable it is to spend time outside when it’s not sweltering hot.

With cool mornings and hot afternoons, layering has been my saving grace. It’s also the key to not freezing your buns off in over-air-conditioned restaurants! I’ve had this sweater blazer for a few seasons now and have mostly styled it in spring and fall with jeans, OTK boots, loafers, etc., it has more recently been one of my favorite pieces to style for summer. It’s heavy enough to keep me warm on those cooler mornings and light enough that I don’t overheat once the temperature starts warming up. Another plus? It’s extremely comfortable while still looking put together.

Since my sweater blazer is a little bit heavier and has a boxy shape to incorporating feminine touches into the rest of my outfit is a must. My white camisole is the perfect top to pair under it and the inset in it adds a little extra detailing without it being overwhelming and the bows on my sandals add a little extra fun to this casual look.

    I love a blazer and shorts outfit! I am looking forward to getting my blazers out again when the weather heats up a little more here, it’s gotten quite cold for the last few weeks of winter!

    Hope that your week is off to a great start!

    I ordered this blazer after you shared it in your Portland travel guide! I already had the black and loved it and once I saw this color on you and how you styled it, I knew I needed it!

      I love, love, love the camel! I’m thinking about picking up a second color for fall but can’t decide which one I like the best – I’m thinking either the black or green, but the light pink is also SO cute!
