It’s ba-aack. When I told you last March the white blazer was a must, I did not lie. I’ve pulled mine out of the closet (for the thousandth time) and paired it with the black romper for a posh little getup that’s cool and sophisticated and excellent for transitioning into Fall.

Finding a long blazer that hits the hem of the shorts makes for a very flirty silhouette. When wearing shorts with heels, the length of the blazer can really draw the line between a cool, sexy look and just plain trashy. Lets aim for the former, shall we?

I love the black and white trend. Its sharp and especially fun to accent with bold accessories like the City Slim Clutch. Once again I’ll say it, IT’S MY FAVORITE!

Pairing the Frances Pearl necklace with a caged heel is an unexpected play on traditional pearl-related femininity…these certainly are not your grandmother’s pearls! When an accessory has the ability to promote more than one style, when it can be lady-like and edgy at the same time and when it can be worn with a silk dress as well as a plaid shirt and jeans..well that’s a piece I’m willing to invest.

The Pearl Spike Cuff and Deja Vu studs are additional layers with lady-like edge. Blythe Harris said it best last month after the fashion show when discussing these pieces. In reference to the Pearl/spike stud, she commented, “These earrings go from nice to naughty very quickly.” I couldn’t agree more.
