Summer Mixology

acne jacket

Before going to a lunch I had these photos taken and realized who the f**k needs black when there’s color to experiment with.

blue suede jacket

Jacket: ACNE (found this local consignment shop!!). Try PAUL by Paul Smith, Shopbop or Shoptiques. Shorts + blouse:  French Connection.  Try Jean Paul Gaultier or one of these at Asos. Shoes: Sigerson Morrison (on sale). Try Alexander Wang (on sale too – heck what isn’t right now?),  Bag: Alexander Wang. Try DVF (yep – it’s on sale). 
The purple linen shorts are slouchy enough to avoid sausage leg syndrome – basically the same reason we wear ‘boyfriend’ styles. 
Most know that cobalt is a fave color (the jacket is a lucky find from here!!), so it took less than 10 seconds to pick these sandals  (the black, white and stone are also on sale).  Bonus: they are a unicorn meaning it’s a very walkable heel.  They’re kinda bendy flexible when you walk around or stand.

This means a lot coming from someone who’s just getting back into the heel thing.

The leo bag on top is my fun exclamation mark.  Gotta love a bit of leopard…

    That guy in the background photo bombed your pics lol, but I love the blue heels ♥ and bag. Also nice score finding the ACNE jacket 😀

      actually he was there well before I was so I just got in HIS way if you ask me LOL!!! I Thought it was funny that he stayed there knowing full well that he’d be in the back ground.

    Cobalt is one of my absolute favourites too but I’d probably never have thought to pair it with purple. Your blog is always so inspiring!

      Ah thank you Karina. I think cobalt looks best paired with another ‘colour’ versus something plain like white (although of course that works too).

    • Karen says:

      and let me you the shoes are comfortable!! Talk about a rarity with heels.

    • Karen says:

      Thank you! I do love deep colors a lot.

    LOVE all the royal blue. It’s one of my favorite colors for summer actually, because it looks so good against a tan! It definitely looks great on you–especially with the magenta pop. Agreed about black–who needs it when you’ve got so many other chic colors? 🙂

    • Karen says:

      Yea I love this shade of blue. It never gets old does it? Yea I love black and it’s actually striking in summer but heck lets face it, bright colors just MAKES you feel better.

  6. Pree says:

    Ohhhh those shorts just look sooooo comfortable! I want them!

    • Karen says:

      Omg they so are….!!! Baggy shorts are a woman’s dream! no cycling short tight shorts for me unless I’m feeling REALLY confident that day
