A linen blazer is a summer classic, and while one may say you shouldn’t invest in one with fall right around the corner, I say that’s so wrong! California may be the exception because it doesn’t get cold around here until late October, but if you don’t have a linen blazer, then you are missing out on an outer layer that is almost at the same echelon as the denim jacket.
You can trade in your black blazer and wear the linen blazer with a blouse and pencil skirt. You can also scream summer with linen pants and rock the pantsuit with either a heel or sneaker. You can really make it glam and pair it with a little black dress, too! I opted for a cool and casual look, with boyfriend jeans and a linen slip on sneaker that I found in the men’s department of Old Navy, perfect to run around in.
For the gal on the go, a small bag like this Louis I picked up for a killer deal at Crossroads Trading Co. keeps all of your essentials close while not weighing you down. If you are looking to get yourself a luxury bag, I HIGHLY suggest following Crossroads on Instagram and also following their account for your region (for Northern CA it’s @crossroads_norcal, for Southern CA it’s @crossroads_socal, etc.). They’re always posting their consignment items on the account so get ready to find your next dream bag.
