ttF Fashion Diary: Summer Suit

ttF Fashion Staple: Sheer Floral Button-Down
For my final episode of Quick Switch last week, I decided to embrace one of spring’s trends I have not tried yet: the shorts suit. I went mismatched with tan and navy, then brightened it up with a printed top and pink lips. My cameraman said I looked very American. I felt very Americana chic so I took it as a compliment.

Equipment Signature Floral Shirt, Theory jacket, Marc Jacobs shorts, Flirt ring, Essie nail polish in Tangerine, Steve Madden Stokker pump

    I love this look Sydney! I’ve been wanting to try a shorts suit but wasn’t sure how to put it together. I like how you’ve paired the tan blazer and black shorts, it makes it look more relaxed than a matched look.
    I really enjoy your styling and am glad to have found your blog.

      So happy you like the look! It is more relaxed than matching separates. Def worth a try 🙂

    This look just screams summer chic! I wish it would finally get warm enough here to wear shorts.. still in the 50s!
    I love all your colors and textures here too.
