I’m baaaaaack! Hope you guys enjoyed the content that went up while I was away. It was such a relief to not have to work late each night to get a post scheduled while I was in London and France! It really gave me chance to unplug and actually take a break for once. While I did post a lot on Instagram (and will continue to there and here!), it was nice to not feel chained to my laptop or feel a sense of urgency to get anything done while abroad. So THANK YOU for your patience and continuing to follow along!

While on my short stopover in London, I had the chance to catch up and shoot with Michaela. In case you’re a more recent follower/reader, she was my photographer when I lived in London back in 2015! She’s the best – so nice and fun… and oh so talented! You can check out some of her work here and on her Instagram page.

This is the first look we shot, and the one I was most excited about! I’d been eyeing this scalloped blazer and short set for months, and saw both pieces finally went on sale ahead of Memorial Day Weekend! I actually ended up getting an additional 25% off each piece because of MDW sales, so that was pretty perfect timing right before my trip. I’m always a little worried about how shorts will fit my hips/butt, but I’m SO glad I decided to take the plunge and give these a try! They are the perfect high waist rise and a good length – not too short on my 5’9 frame. The shorts and blazer both fit true to size for me – I’m bigger in the hips/butt area so went with the 6 in those, and got a 4 in the blazer.

In addition to wearing this blazer and these shorts together as a chic short suit, I know they’re going to be super solid standalone items as well. I already wore the shorts styled another way in France here! Stay tuned to discover more ways to style these scalloped beauties…

PS: I’ll be sharing more on these heels in Wednesday’s blog post, but if you want to order them now: I normally wear a 9 1/2 and took a 40.5 in these! They run small.
