Miami - specifically South Beach - calls for bold colors to match the art deco buildings and overall vibe of the area. The energy is high, so naturally, my look had to keep up! I can’t begin to tell you how happy I was to accidentally come across a blazer like this. I’ve always been into the boyfriend blazer fit, but find it difficult to track down a quality fit, color or print. My interpretation of the this pinkversion is that inspiration was drawn from Asian silhouettes such as the kimono in terms of print and fit. The blazer hangs so perfectly and the movement doesn’t get better! Well done Free People.
I love the idea of mixing smaller fitted pieces with oversized flowy pieces like this blazer, which is why I went with a white LF crop top and linen shorts that I found at Lord & Taylor. The large criss cross detailon the top does wonders for the midsection. This upside down V-shaped illusion that it gives right above the belly button is super slimming! I find this to be especially true when wearing it with a high waisted bottom. My only recommendation when wearing shorts with a large blazer like this is make sure the shorts meet the length of the blazer, or at least be somewhere close to it. Keeps the look classy!
Taking full advantage of me being tanner than normal this summer and sporting a lot more gold jewelry than usual. I Have been playing around with body jewelry and layering much more as of late. I didn’t want to spend a huge amount of money I was experimenting with, so I went for a cheap body chain from Brandy Melville. Now that I know, I’m obsessed, I may invest in a higher quality one. I truly think that small details like a gold body chain hanging out of the bottom of a crop top like this can enhance an outfit. It definitely added that Miami vibe and an ounce of glam to the look!
Finally, sandals are the map of summer shoes, especially this Stuart Weitzman style. It was the perfect shoe to pull the look together will helping to give all the glory to my blazer! they were the perfect wing woman support for this look. Let e know your thoughts in the comments below!
