I love the combination of casual basics paired with more formal wear, like these cut-off jean shorts and navy blazer. The shorts and striped tee make the blazer less stuffy, while the blazer brings more pizzazz to the outfit. Lately, I’ve felt a little stuck when dressing up to go to brunch or early dinner with friends. I’m constantly battling a feeling of being overdressed or underdressed, so am attempting to find a balance. What do you think about this combination?

On a totally unrelated note, I went and saw Amy on Sunday, and loved it. It was so heart-wrenchingly sad and utterly beautiful all at once. I had to take time to walk it off a bit afterwards, and was left thinking about it days later. Like one critic mentioned, in-your-face-intimate.
