The weather this past weekend was beautiful and I attended a couple of outdoor gatherings. Saturday was the Malcolm X Jazz Festival and it was nice as usual. This was our 3rd year attending. I was accompanied by Mel and my sisters in-law. You're always guaranteed to run into friends and the performances are almost always good. I wore some overalls that I thrifted for less than $10. The overalls are a vintage Gap pair and were wide in the legs. I tailored them and made it more fitting. I paired it with a plain white tee and some cognac ankle boots.
Friday's here! Phew!! Another Style Me Friday challenge for me this week. This week's challenge consist of short suits. It can be a matching suit or it can be a pair of shorts with a nice blazer. When I found out on Monday what this week's challenge was going to be, I smiled from ear to ear because I had just purchased my suit two days earlier. Great minds think alike! The suit I'm wearing is by MNG by Mango from JC Penney. It's a neutral color so I can wear it with almost anything and I like that the fabric is linen which is cool for the summer months. I paired it with a tribal print button up with the same colors as the suit and styled it with two different shoes. One way I added a pop of color with my red wedge pumps and the other way was with my all black perforated oxfords. For accessories, I kept it simple with a gold necklace, bangle watch and a few rings.
What do you think about short suits? Will you be wearing one this summer?
Hey guys! Since the weather has been nice here in the bay, this week's outfit is focused on shorts. We chose a rose colored pair and styled it with a long sleeved gingham button up. To incorporate mixed prints, a patterned vest was added to give it a different look. We finished it off with a pair of all white chucks and a NY Yankees baseball cap. What do you think about this look? Are you guys ready for shorts weather?
