Chambray

Good afternoon everyone :) I've had a busy but fun week of dinners, reunions and even a baby shower! The festivities continue today with my mom's birthday barbecue. Even though she's half a century young (leaving the number ambiguous haha), my mom truly has the spirit and energy of a woman in her twenties. You can witness her beauty at the end of this post :)


Blazer: Club Monaco  
Dress: Zara  
Watch: Michael Kors 
Shoes: Zara 
Clutch: H&M 

When I first saw this chambray blazer at Club Monaco, I was praying they had it in my size. It looked like the perfect summer blazer -- one that's light in color and weight, but thick enough to defend against air conditioned offices. With a loose fit consistent with the casual vibe of chambray, it was perfect. My outfit was centered around the blazer, so I paired it with a white shift from Zara and yellow, gold hued accessories. An updo an pearl earrings completed the look. What do you think? And this is probably only helpful for readers in NYC, but Queens Center Mall has a Club Monaco outlet where items are 50% off the marked price. This blazer was an absolute steal at $24.99!

Below are sets from Polyvore, in case you want more inspiration pics:


And as promised, here's a photo of my lovely mom (right) with my grandma:


If you're reading mom, HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I love you ♥ Thanks for visiting ladies & gents (aka boyfriend), and talk to you soon!

  15. Blazers are always a great thing to have in one's closet. I like how simple your white dress is. The little yellow clutch is such a fantastic colour that it really makes the outfit.

  30. First off, I cannot believe that was your mum in the picture! I actually thought your grandma was your mum and your mum was your sister or something. Secondly I am soooo in love with your blazer, you're right it is the perfect summer blazer. I love the oversized look. Club Monaco is one of my favourite brands, so jealous you live near one of their outlets. I'm your newest follower.

  31. I'm in love with the way you paired the neons with those neutral clothings. And if that's your mum and grandmother you do not have to be afraid of ageing (good genes)

  55. Cute outfit. :) You're definitely having oodles of fun dressing for the office. Summer is my favorite season to shop and dress for.

    Just copying my response to your comment below since it's hard to tell when I respond to your comments on my blog and vice versa.

    It was a good vacation since I was amongst family. Can't ask for much more. My little sister who is 5'7 borrowed my orange fishy top (she always borrows at least one shirt while I'm back).

    I'm glad you found me too! It's nice to come across fellow bloggers with helpful tips, whose style you can relate to or whose style inspires you to try something different.

    xo,
