Easy Lightweight Blazers- The Piece I Wanna Wear All Summer

As of late, I have been obsessed with oversized blazers because they are effortless, chic, they always pull together an outfit. Plus they dress up a super casual outfit in a jiffy (think cut off shorts and a t-shirt, a dress with sneakers, or ripped jeans and a simple tank)! I'm a sucker for ease while looking fashionable, so blazers are my go-to when I'm running low on time and need a pulled together look stat.

I found this light weight one at Crossroads, one of my favorite consignment stores in LA, and it's a fave piece of mine from the collab by JOA x Chriselle Lim.  I love it because it's super summery, oversized (at least the one I found at crossroads...It may be meant to fit tighter but I like the oversized fit of the one I found) so much so that it's almost a dress, and the fabric isn't fussy at all so I don't have to be precious with it. It's the perfect "throw on" piece.  This look is kinda my cheating way to look stylish when I don't want to put much effort in. I find myself wearing blazers again and again through the summer for a polished look, but I opt for light weight and slightly long. Check out 11 styles below that I love as well as the details of my look. 

I'd love to know what you are loving and if you are into this look as well!

Now that it is officially summer, its time to get that versatile and cute bag for your Hawaiian vacation or that cute trendy tote just for those farmers market trips. But, there are so many options and trends out there. Which one do you choose?!

Personally, I love a bag with a little spice and color that feels interesting in some way. Whether it be texture, color, design, or pattern! Some of my favorite styles for summer are the super cool Cult Gaia arhcitectural bags were seeing so much of, the very cool netted market bags that are great for EVERYTHING, the woven options and those fun little drawstring pouches. I am seeing these everywhere and absolutely love them for all the festivities summer brings us!

Why I love these styles::

1. Architectural- I love a bag that looks like a piece of art. These types of bags really showcase personal style and truly are pieces of wearable art in my opinion.

2. Woven - I love how easy and effortless woven totes look.  They are perfect for everything from beach days to shopping days.

3. Pouch bag- These little bags are so cute and fun! They are super versatile, easy to use as a purse or even throw in a bigger purse to keep your lipgloss and credit cards organized.

Check out some versatile picks below. There are a ton of options for all sorts of styles. Let me know which ones are you favorites!
