AJ Wears :: A Tan Blazer

I really enjoy my tan blazer from Banana Republic (last seen here), but it’s really more of a coat and quite warm. So I set out to find a lighter blazer in a similar color for the warmer months. This brand from ASOS has quite a few cute blazers and I LOVE the fact that the sleeves are already ruched. I’ve always preferred 3/4 sleeves or rolling my jackets, and it wasn’t until I saw someone say that long sleeves didn’t feel as feminine that I realized why.

Well, that and being short. I just don’t like stuff hanging around my wrists. I could blame left-handedness as well, since I grew up dragging my sleeves through whatever I was writing.

Anyway, what was I saying? Right. Blazer. Shorts. I wore this to work, as an effort to continue defying all laws of office dress code.

AJ Wears :: A Plaid Suit

Happy Friday! This truly has been the summer of suits - especially this one. I love how easy the pants and jacket are to mix and match with other things; you might remember both pieces from my trip to San Diego.

If you’re normally a t-shirt and jeans kind of person, a suit may have some unintended side effects, such as duping your coworkers into thinking you have a super important interview somewhere fancy. Keep them on their toes by dressing for the job you really want - Diane Keaton.
