summer suiting








I love the idea of pulling business appropriate pieces and pairing them with something unconventional -- like reflective silver bike shorts. Roughened up with some shiny and spiky jewelry, yet still demure with a collard shirt, starry sky jacket and a strand of dime-sized crystals -- this might just be my go to deconstructed summer suit.

{Zara jacket; Target top; AA shorts; Ralph Lauren sandals; See by Chloe bag; JCrew necklace; bracelets--JCrew, H&M, F21}
