Hey Shorty!

Wednesday! Wednesday! Wednesday! How is it already mid-week? I'm loving the idea of wearing a blazer with shorts. It adds an extra layer that gives the look a little bit of a punch. I love the touch of menswear. I'll let you in on a little secret: I absolutely adore menswear! I love the look of a well dressed man. They can be wearing jeans and a t-shirt but if they are well fitted and have a great pair of shoes on---I'm sold! What about y'all? Do you love a well dressed guy? Or does that not matter as much? 






Blazer: UKStyle by French Connection
Top: American Eagle
Shorts: Lauren Conrad for Kohls
Wedges: Steve Madden

  2. Oh Giovanna you know my heart! There is something to say about a well dressed man, even if he is wearing jeans and a t shirt! I love this look and that blazer paired with the shorts definitely gives you a fun, but chic look!

    I don´t know why, but I haven´t got shorts I REALLY like, so I don´t wear them. Hmm...I should buy some!

  40. Oooh, way to rock that blazer! I love how you styled it with the shorts <3
    Plus, your wedges are too cute.
    Hmmm, and for me, I like a guy who dresses well, but if I reeeaaally like a guy, then it doesn't matter too much what he wears. However, if he knows how to dress, that is definitely a plus! :)

  47. I love menswear and women who like to dress like men. You gave me an idea for a future blog - a celebration of the actress Marlene Dietrich who often wore men clothes.

  57. Great combo -- don't know why I haven't ever paired up a blazer with shorts before. Casual yet still polished. :) Clothes don't make the man; however, I appreciate that my Mr. cares about how things fit and look and dresses with care. :)
