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 :: Rainbow Pants

You ever see something on someone else and make the mistake of thinking, "Hey, I will look exactly that cute in that outfit!"

That's what's happening here. Sure, the girl on Instagram wearing these pants was taller and thinner but in my head I thought, YES, LET'S COVER MY BODY IN COLORFUL STRIPES like I'm Joseph and the Technicolor Dreamcoat or something. Are these the most flattering pants in the world? Absolutely not. Do I care? Absolutely not.

PS - if you'd really like to see what nightmares are made of, check out the matching top. Yep, it's a set, and if you think I won't wear them together you don't know me at all.

Pants, Free People (exact).
Top, Lush via Trunk Club.
Bag & Shoes, JustFab.
Necklace, BaubleBar.

AJ Wears :: A Sporty Sweatshirt

I saw this shirt/sweatshirt combo on H&M's Instagram the other day, and ta da! I had to have it. ADVERTISING WORKS. I've been favoring slouchy, sportier styles lately, and LOVE these sneakers. I may or may not have ordered another pair of Adidas from Asos last night.

I did. I also bought some Casper pillows, a face mask from Sephora, and a rose gold swimsuit. Someone needs to cut off my internet connection.
