Summer and blazers – I know, not generally in the same sentence especially in the midst of this New York heat. But sometimes, a girls just gotta layer. I love the structured look of blazers and how they really pull an outfit together but I am not about showing up to meetings drenched in sweat (what? It happens when you are forced to take the subway). I spend a ton of time searching for those perfect Summer blazers that are light colors and even lighter fabrics, so you still get the layering look without dying from over-heating.
Funny story about this shoot – you know how you always see those bloggers who just happen to have a beautiful bouquet of flowers perfectly situated and ready to shoot with their #ootd? Ya, that is not typically me but I have always wanted that shot. As we were leaving the Bryant Park restrooms after a quick outfit change, the bathroom attendant was putting together the days fresh bouquet of flowers and they were so beautiful I actually asked him if I could borrow the flowers before he finished the arrangement so I could shoot with them. He was so sweet and excitedly handed them over so I could shoot with them! Sometimes living in New York is really hard, but it is little acts of kindness like these that make the grind worth it.
Below are some of my favorite summer blazers!
