I was flipping through the pages of this month’s issue of Harper’s Bazaar and I came across the “Rules of Summer.” You know…the things you should be wearing this summer, according to HB. They listed “12 Easy Updates,” which include leather shorts and a white blazer.

I am so down for the white blazer, I think it would look great with almost anything. Very versatile. Shorts and a tank, a pair of jeans, or a summer dress would all look very chic. And it’s probably really easy to find one at a thrift or vintage store (sorry the brain is always on bargainista mode). This one below is by J.Jill.

Hmmm…I like the idea of leather shorts…but it doesn’t seem very practical when you live in L.A. where the temperature can reach into the 100’s during the summer. But, then I think, they look kinda cute. (FYI…these are by Juicy Couture and they are available up to a size 14). Then my mind starts thinking about the “what if’s?” What if they stick to my legs when it’s hot…or they make me sweat? Am I thinking too much into this?

What do you think?

    I love white and have a white blazer but it's short. I like the one pictured not too long either. The shoes are really nice too.
