I admit that I am a little in love with all things Missoni, M Missoni, and even resembling Missoni prints. I bought these shorts on Shopbop when they first debuted on the site and I was waiting and waiting for a warm day to wear them outside without tights, but that day never came so now you get to see them inside with tights. They are way too sparkly and adorable and high waisted to wait around for a sunny day. I actually am surprised at how great they look with the tights. The shorts themselves are very thick and well constructed. The neutral tones are good for matching with many items already in my closet. You saw me wearing a different pair of M Missoni knit shorts last year on Fashion Snag without tights.
Since I was wearing so little on the bottom I wanted to cover up the top a bit more. I opted for this drapey white tank top from Tea Leaf Clothing. As you know, LnA makes some great basics and this tank top is nice and lightweight so you can wear it alone in the summer when it's really hot or pair it up with a businesslike blazer now. I personally love it worn underneath this blazer because it subdues the shorts a little bit due to all the extra draping in the front. It is a nice addition to have peeking out between your lapels. This Rock & Republic blazer was the buy of a lifetime. It is extremely well made, lined in silk, and it has leather trim. I remember it was one of the first black blazers I bought and at the time I thought it would be very versatile. It has proved to be a timeless piece and because it is high quality it has held up quite well. I wore my Prada suede ankle strap platform sandals. The heel on these gets me every time. You saw them worn a couple weeks ago on the blog without tights. I wish the weather was still that wonderful!
