White Short Suit (See Jane Wear)

Zara jacket (old, last seen here), J Crew sweatshirt, Anthropologie shorts (old but similar), Zara heels (similar), 3.1 Phillip Lim bag, Super sunglasses
I love a good short suit but to be honest, they make no sense to me.  You can't really wear them in a corporate-type setting but they often appear too dressy for a casual workplace.  What a conundrum; good thing I never invested in one.  By pulling out older pieces in a similar color palette from my closet, I was able to achieve a similar look.  Now if only I still had those palazzo pants from grade school hiding in my closet...


  1. Great blazer and bag!

  2. Great outfit, but I totally agree with you. I'd never wear a short suit to the office and for going out in the evenings I'd rather wear a cute dress or something casual. Ás you said, what a conundrum. ;)

  3. Pretty cool look! Gorgeous bag and shoes!

  4. I love the white on white look and the different textures look really cool together!

  5. Love this! So simply, yet classy! Perfect in white.

  6. Completely agree with you about short suits - I have been creating my own too! Also, if I had your legs, I'm pretty sure I'd wear shorts every day :)

  7. This outfit is so adorable! I love your jacket and shoes!

  8. beautiful!!! I´m in love with your sandals! xo, Alma

  9. I love any kind of suit that allows me to wear blazers in the summer!

  10. WOW that jacket is amazing !

    Check out my new outfit post :

  11. I feel exactly the same way about short suits. Cute but I don't why or where you would wear one (except on a blog). I like your version better since it's not matchy.

  12. Love this! Classic and chic.

  13. You're so right Anna... but I'm still obsessed with the short suit trend this Summer! I think you found the perfect solution and I'm loving that gorgeous blazer.

  14. You're right, they don't make any sense. But they sure are cute! Love you you made one from your closet!

  15. i love your style!

  17. I love this whole look, and I'm totally coveting these shoes now!

  18. I agree re: the practicality of a shorts suit. My office's conservative dress code would never allow for shorts, no matter how chic.

    But I do rock the shorts suit combo for dinner dates/drinks with the girls. :)

    Love the all-white look!


  19. So chic! You can never go wrong with an all white outfit :)

  20. pretty look. love the shoes and nail polish

  21. Great outfit! Definitely the right idea to remix your own pieces rather than buy a short suit.

  22. Love this blazer!


  23. This is a great solution to a shorts suit! More modern. Love a good neutral outfit.
