Short Suits

27 March 2012

 I'm always looking for new takes on short suits, and adding print seems like the best way to make a blazer short pairing really pop, and though this blazer is a little on the boxy side (I'm going to alter it now...) it still adds a bit of flare to my print mixing pairs. 
Jacket Thrifted, Shorts Target, Top Old Navy, Shoes Kohl's, Jewelry Jewelmint and Vintage, Bag Old Navy, Scarf Vintage.

This look is so fun! I for one LOVE polka-dots and am really into and having fun w/ mixing prints. You my dear are an expert "mixologist"! The pop of red w/ the blazer just tops the look off! <3! :)
