Heather gray jersey blazer; H&M, asymmetrical brown tunic; H&M, brown draped pocket shorts; courtesy of StylebyMarina, socks; H&M, Jeffrey Campbell Mariel wedges in black fur courtesy of solestruck.

Today I really felt like playing with the brown tones of the draped shorts and tunic by layering it with a heather gray blazer and ash-blue socks and a deep mahogany almost black nail polish.

The H&M jersey blazer is perfect by the way, it really wears like a cardigan and has a slight boxy-boyfriend fit which makes it really versatile in styling, especially for layering on top of shorts, skirts, rompers and maxi skirts and dresses.. (you know, to make things a bit more grungy or easy and laid-back instead of an uptight corporate look πŸ˜‰
