Trend of the Month: Colorful Blazers!

{Lipstick: Revlon Are You Red-dy | Blazer: Zara | Necklace: Target | Top: J. Crew | Shorts: Gap | Shoes: Target}





I'm joining Marionberry Style for the trend of the month...colorful blazers!  This one was a no-brainer.  I got this red blazer at Zara recently and hadn't worn it...so this was the perfect opportunity.  
I went out for drinks with a friend and this was the ideal cocktail outfit.  Heels and shorts...yes please!  About those cocktails though...I don't know what I was thinking!  I had so much fun I got carried away.  Maybe I thought I was back in college or that I didn't have a child or that I wasn't a stay at-home-mom...but I had one too many...and this was on a THURSDAY.  We literally shut down the bar.  Who does that?!?  Apparently I do! A word to the wise, dealing with an almost toddler when you go to bed at 3 a.m. is not fun.  Most people probably know that, but I had to test it out.

    1. Alyssa, thanks! I love having some cool days in summer because you can play around with layers and wear things like blazers or sweaters with shorts.

  15. I love the bright red blazer with the polka dots! All these bright blazers I've seen today made me go on a bright blazer hunt on my lunch break. I didn't find myself one, but I did get a few other things. lol

  16. Hopefully the colorful blazer will still be in when the weather cools. With 100+ degree heat here now, I can't imagine putting one on. Yours is lovely!

  20. Love this look! I did my blazer with jean shorts too. :) When you're a SAHM you just don't have as much of a need for blazers. ;) Thankfully some genius blogger decided to show them with cute shorts and now we can wear cute blazers too! ;)

  25. Lindsay,
    So glad to have just found you via Marion's site. I love this outfit. Probably my favorite part is the blazer paired with the denim shorts (of which the latter is my everyday staple :). I love the dots and and the bright pops of color. And, the shoes are wonderful too! I am now looking forward to more wonderful posts!
    Best, Whitley
