I’ve decided that this Spring I’m going to work on trying new things with my personal style. That’s where this long blazer, denim shorts and Vans Old Skool Shoes outfit comes in.  I feel like I’ve fallen into the habit of always wearing variations of the same looks over and over again, and sometimes you just need a few pieces to change up your style just a bit.

One of those pieces for me this Spring is this long blazer that I was lucky enough to find at Crossroads. I love that it’s something unlike anything else in my wardrobe. I also like that it makes a statement with any outfit. It’s already become a go-to piece for professional events, and I think it adds a fun tomboy vibe when paired with denim.

Speaking of tomboy vibes, I recently purchased these Vans Old Skool shoes and they’ve quickly become a favorite. Since I mostly live in heels, this is another piece that is unlike most things in my wardrobe. I love this classic Vans style because it pairs well with everything from jeans to dresses. Moreover,  I love how comfortable they are! That really makes me wonder why it’s taken me so long to add more casual shoes to my wardrobe.

    I think that’s awesome that you’re challenging yourself to be more creative with your outfits, styling pieces and creating outfits you otherwise wouldn’t; I try to push myself to do the same thing. That said, I love the way you’ve styled the blazer with the shorts and Vans, it makes for such a nice casual outfit taken up a notch with the blazer! Thanks so much for sharing, girlie, and I hope you have a great week ahead!

    I love pairing a cute blazer with some denim shorts, it´s like a mix between casual and formal! And you did it in a great way, with a simple white tee. Love it!
