3 Piece Suit With Sensible Shoes

I was sort of feeling like I had run out of things to show you this week. I haven't bought anything new in a while (which is good. I have plenty of clothes), and as I went through my closet, I realised that I have probably photographed just about everything in there at least once. That sentiment lasted all of about four minutes. There is always another combination or reinvention to be had. I think that the posts where I "shop my closet" are some of my favourite looks, because it forces me to see things in a different light.

I have always loved the idea of a shorts suit, but hadn't really thought much more about it, as my opportunities to wear a suit, let alone shorts, are quite few here in Scotland. That said, I like this look a lot, and will probably reproduce it with some other items in my closet. It's a great summer look, and even though it's a "suit", the shorts keep it casual enough to be able to wear it in a variety of environments. With just a change of shoes you could bring this look from a more daytime vibe (as I am wearing it here) to an evening look. The next time the weather is as balmy as it is today and I'm going out to dinner or drinks, I'm totally wearing this. Yup.

  1. Hi! You look great wearing those shorts! And I like them matched to that blazer! As a friend of mine said... clothes are not to be worn just once!!

  2. Very cute look.


  3. Brilliant summer suit, Kristin. Thanks for sharing with Visible Monday, you look fab in shorts (and everything else!).

  4. You can totally pull this off.

  5. Are you old enough to remember that old Nair commercial..."we wear short shorts"....? That's you all over! The shorter the better!

    1. I am every bit old enough to remember that add. Hilarious.

  6. Cute suit!! I love the vest underneath, and I like the barette in the hair on you to dress it up as well

    please stop by, jess xo


  7. The shorts make the whole ensemble quirky and cheeky and I love it

  8. I saw the title of this post and thought - Kirstin, no way! But then I saw the pics and I was like, way! You've put your imitable spin on the suit and sensible shoes idea and come out looking sassy as usual. Not something I could rock, but fun to see, anyway.

  9. All legs ... you should be so tickled with yourself, young lady! What a nice yield your closet shopping gave you. Way cute, and I'm all admiration of your combinations. Very cute little shoes with it, and can see you out and about in this so easily! Enjoy your week, lovely!

  10. What a perfect combination of elegant blazer and shorts! You look great.
