Welcome to summer, Boston! It is the season for baseball, internships, ice cream, and white outfits. My favorite part about summer on the east coast is being able to wear upscale hot-weather outfits. Because I am in Boston for internship training, I was in the mood to experiment with a more professional look.
Whoever said blazers are strictly for the workplace was definitely wrong. Blazers are the perfect statement piece and can add so much class to an outfit. The key to working a blazer is being able to add casual elements to your outfit mix.
In this look, I chose a white blazer as my statement piece to work off of. It is a textured cotton blazer that is lightweight and extremely cool. But you know what the best part is? It was five dollars from a little boutique in SoHo that was going out of business. You can find a similar one here.
Denim is almost always necessary to create a blazer look that doesn’t scream summer internship. I chose to wear a Forever 21 denim skirt with a white tube top to match the white blazer. I added a pink Ted Baker clutch to the outfit and a pair of matching Ray-bans because what says summer more than a pop of color?
A huge trend this summer is the block heeled sandal. I am obsessed with them because they are so darn comfortable and versatile. The heel makes it a more formal shoe but the thick heel keeps it casual. My favorite part? The extra inches they add to your legs to make your look perfect.
I don’t know about you all, but I am so excited to incorporate more colors and patterns into my outfits this summer. Are you trying a style you’re not used to? Comment below! Summer is all about exploring new things!
