I like a challenge when getting dressed and so I'm always trying to think of how to style my shorts in a new way. A shorts suit is a sophisticated twist on this summer staple and really gives a pair of shorts a full "look." I will be mixing shorts and (lightweight) blazers all summer long for sure! Side note: I also recently realized the importance of a pair of primary-colored shoes. They are something that I recommend that everyone has at least one of. I'm really in to cobalt blue right now, but a vibrant red pair would do you just as well! I bet you'll also be surprised at how easily they will fit in with the rest of your wardrobe.

  2. I went the shorts suit route with my post today too -- love it for a summer variation that keeps my blazers in the rotation even when it's hotter!
