With just a hint of balloon shorts peeking out from under the sleek lines of this boyfriend blazer here’s a look that’s at once sophisticated but not too serious. The flats from Lela Rose for Payless lend a nod to nautical and the gold details on the clutch and earrings top off the outfit with a luxe touch. After a looong winter why not try Nivea’s Summer Touch for a gradual natural-looking tan that has the added benefit of also reducing the appearance of leg hair. Spend the extra time gained by not shaving sipping bubbly at the waterfront.
