Start the week off with an outfit you can hurdle hydrants in. Keeping it lightweight is key this time of year, and with the dog days of summer upon us a linen blazer is a must. Easily dressed up or down, this time it meets somewhere in the middle. A slim pair of flexible dark blue jeans impart a relaxed and comfortable vibe on the look while the tie and tie bar let people know you mean business. I've always been a fan of dressed up utility pieces and the chambray certainly does its job: keeping the look clean while adding a unique texture. The navy shade of the tie blends closely enough with the pants to fit in but is different enough to give the look a spark, thanks in part to its sheen and subtle pattern. Finished with a pair of minimalist white leather sneakers, my usual first choice when wearing sneakers with a blazer. If you put this look together the right way, the only Monday Blues people will be talking about are the ones you're wearing.
