As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, I ordered quite a few clothing items to try from Amazon – most of which are from their collection THE DROP. Most arrived yesterday and today, but I got this linen double-breasted blazer and these matching drawstring shorts in the mail over the weekend and couldn’t wait to share!! I was very pleasantly surprised by the quality and fit for such a budget-friendly short suit – the blazer is $59.90 and the shorts are $39.90… so the entire thing is under $100! I have a similar short suit in blue from MANGO that I love (several years old), but the fit and quality isn’t nearly as good as this set. The drawstring shorts are very comfortable, and are stretchy, not stiff at the waistband. The double-breasted blazer features tortoiseshell buttons, which I seem to have blocked in these photos – you can see them here!
I’m really into earthier neutrals like this right now, and think it is such a great color for wearing now and into fall. Plus, it is *super* lightweight, making it ideal for even these hot Texas temps! This set is 100% cotton, but it has more of a linen look and feel – it’s a bit more stiff and wrinkles like linen, but a good steamer does the trick. As far as sizing goes: I ordered a small in the blazer since it’s an oversized boyfriend fit, and opted for a medium in the shorts. I love sets like this because they are so versatile! Style the blazer and shorts together like I have, or wear them separately – I’d suggest a black tank and bsandals with the shorts for summer, and perhaps a blouse and dark jeans with the blazer for fall!
I’ll be sharing more of my faves from this Amazon order both on Instagram stories and on the blog soon, but below are some additional finds in earthier neutrals I’m loving! PS: most of the items below come in black as well!
