Jersey Girl, Texan Heart: Blazer and Shorts

Blazer and Shorts

4:00 AM

Blazer:  Ralph Lauren // Shorts:  Ralph Lauren // Shoes:  Betsy Johnson (Marshalls, old) // Necklace:  Macy's // Clutch:  Ralph Lauren // Sunglasses:  Gucci

It’s finally warm enough to whip out shorts!  As long as you come prepared to keep the rest of you warm.  I am absolutely in love with these particular shorts because they have an equestrian print and they are Ralph Lauren.  I think everyone and their mother know that I love Ralph Lauren and anything equestrian by now.  Actually come to think of it, this whole outfit minus the shoes, jewelry, and sunnies, is Ralph Lauren.  Wow, I think I have a problem haha.

I thought this outfit would be perfect for a lunch or meeting with friends.  It’s still tailored and classy looking because of the blazer, but I feel like the shorts give it that little extra pizzazz.  When I uploaded these pictures onto my computer I actually had to do a double take on myself.  I feel like this doesn’t even look like me.  Then I started thinking, how is that possible, it’s an outfit I wear and have worn so what’s so different?  Then it dawned on me; my hair.  I changed my part because every once in a while I like to switch it up and try different hair styles and also use my extensions which I’ve been doing a lot lately.  In order to not look like every other picture I decided to part my hair different.  So instead of the side part which is how my hair natural goes I went straight down the middle.  Now whenever I change my part and have long hair I always tend to feel like a hippy so I changed it up even more and did the poof in the back.  I don’t actually know what it’s really called because it’s not even close to a beehive but it’s along the same lines so POOF it is! 

It’s crazy how one little minor change can change your look completely.  I feel like that’s how it is with clothing.  If you’re like me your style is constantly changing but if you stick to something for so long and then make the smallest change it’s very noticeable.  A good example is if you wear a lot of classic and tailored pieces and then one day you decide to throw in some animal print in there, you can still look tailored but you have a little extra goin’ on.  Or even if you are wearing a really awesome outfit but there’s just something missing and BAM you add the PERFECT pair of shoes.  Sometimes it’s all in the details.
