spring wardrobe preview

Nebraska's winter season still has a solid three and a half months to go, but I can't help but look forward to spring. I've been scouring thrift stores for vintage suits that I could transform into the matching shorts-and-blazer combo I love so much, and I finally found a winner with this red linen one. I sliced off the pants into slightly dolphin-style shorts and left the hem unfinished -- the fraying compliments the fabric, in my opinion. This would also be perfect with a graphic tee and Converse, a la Elin Kling.
