draped blazer X shorts X striped espadrilles

Hello friends! The other day we went down to East Beach to admire the perfectly manicured front yards and the southern style homes with big porches, dressed up with the American flags. It feels so good to change into casual clothes after work, go for a walk and discover the community. Being married and living away from our families has changed me. Having a life besides my 9 to 5 and spending time with family jumped to the very front of my priority list.

Even if I’m all about casual, I still have to add elements to my outfits that polish things up a bit. Adding stripes and a draped blazer did just that. they polished up my casual look just enough, without losing the effortless flare. This striped top is actually a tunic, but the length didn’t work well my shorts, so I decided to tie the excess fabric into a knot. The draped blazer pulls the casual outfit together nicely and the zippers on the side are the perfect finishing touch. The espadrilles are my favorite part of the outfit! These shoes are not just stylish, but they are super comfortable and the price is unbelievable! $15! You can’t get much better than this.

    Love the espadrilles and the blazer. I am quite surprised to see you are wearing them with tights. I have no idea how the weather is over there but where I am tights would be suicidal this time of the year :)

    • http://redreticule.com Red Reticule

      A pair of barely there tights are a basic must have for me. I never ever go to work without them and the only times I don’t wear them when I do some sort of activity outside like hiking, walking in the sand, picnicking or if it’s really, really hot.

    Like how you used the sheer nude hose to make your legs look amazing. It’s one of my favorite fashion tricks and I’m glad I’m not the only fashion blogging gal still wearing them.

    • http://redreticule.com Red Reticule

      Thank you, Alexis! I find a pair of barely there tights a must have. They do make your legs look great and prevent from blisters on those run around days.

      • http://mrsflexkavana.blogspot.com Alexis Grant

        So true. Making my feet slip in and out of my shoes and preventing blisters is probably the biggest reason I wear them so frequently but also making my legs look great is an added bonus :-)

        • http://redreticule.com Red Reticule

          I am so glad to know that I’m not the only one wearing tights. :-) I am looked at like I had three heads sometimes. LOL Hope you are having a wonderful weekend! Bogi
