AJ Wears :: A Short Suit

I’ve worn a short suit on the blog before, 1000 years ago. This one happened quite by accident, though. I bought the shorts at Zara when I was in San Diego in March, and the blazer from Asos in July. I was absolutely tickled when I realized they would match. Because the short suit is perfect for days when it’s too hot for pants but you still wanna be business cazzzsssh. How do you spell shortened casual? The world may never know.

AJ Wears :: Red Pants

How many photos do you need of an outfit for you to decide if you like it or not? I typically post 3-5 photos, of little details and full body shots, but that’s merely due to tradition. It feels like just posting one isn’t enough CONTENT, although surely you get the gist.

Anyway, it sounds like I’m really going through it right now, but in fact I’m writing these all in one day and am just incredibly lazy. Plus you’ve already seen this on Instagram, so.

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.
