I am generally not a fan of shorts and tend to stick with skirts in the summer, but when I saw these safari-inspired walking shorts, I decided to give them a try. You know how I enjoy menswear inspired pieces {evidence here}, and I think they pair quite well with a blazer and dainty heels. The lightweight material is perfect in this southern heat, and the shorts have a slightly more polished look than most of my cotton sundresses.

One problem that I have in the summer is that as soon as I step inside somewhere, I am freezing. Don't get me wrong; I am incredibly thankful for the arctic air conditioning that most places have, I just end up toting around a sweater or cardigan everywhere. That's why I love this seersucker blazer. It's light enough to feel summery, but warm enough to keep me comfy in the icy air conditioned buildings.

I have the same issue; I sweat like crazy outside and then freeze all day at my office..I'm like an old lady bundled up currently and thought its in the 80s outside, I have my space heater on!

Love the outfit and ps. great job rocking the socks with sandals look! I don't think I could pull it off!
