A must have for spring/summer 2013 is the shorts suit.  Say goodbye to the classic pant suit and show off those gorgeous legs of yours.  I'm wearing a two-piece by Stella & Jamie and what's great about this is it's perfect for a night out.  If you want to change up wearing a dress for that special event then I highly recommend a feminine, fun shorts suit.  Below are several different takes on the shorts suit--you can find the perfect one for your style or occasion.

Living in Los Angeles and working in the entertainment industry, I always have events to attend.  I normally wear a dress, but this past week I opted for a lovely shorts suit by Stella & Jamie.  Showing off your legs is sometimes enough to make a statement without baring too much.  So I'm currently in love with the conservative yet foxy look.  John Singleton, the genius filmmaker behind BOYZ N THE HOOD, POETIC JUSTICE, HIGHER LEARNING, and much more was honored by the DGA.  John Singleton welcomed me into his family many years ago and since then we have become exactly that--brother/sister from another mother/father.  I always look froward to his events because it becomes one big family reunion.  Below are some photos from a wonderful evening.  I apologize for the quality of photos as they were taken in a rush.

I love this dress by Stella & Jamie; it's perfect for spring and summer.  What I love the most is that it's appropriate for almost any occasion.  You can throw a blazer over it during the day with some flats then slip into some fun heels to transform your look for a night out.  It's flirty and fun without revealing too much.  Perfect for that special date or girls-night-out!  

For those who aren't familiar with Stella & Jamie; I love them.  They are based out of Los Angeles and their clothes compliment every type of body.  April Mun, the owner and designer, is so kind and talented.  I'll be featuring their clothes and accessories a lot on my blog.  I love supporting local designers--and when you know they are great people--it's a bonus.
