What I Wore: Winter Shorts

Winter shorts. It seems like an oxymoron but it’s a look that I have embraced along with many other fashion-minded ladies out there.  It’s a nice alternative to a dress or a skirt with tights and for some reason, it seems a tad more flirtatious.  Last week I wrote a post about revisiting the classic look of houndstooth. I found these cuties years ago at Macy’s and they are still very relevant.  The shorts speak for themselves so I usually just wear a solid top and tights and some sexy heels to accent the legs.  Another cute idea is to wear over-the-knee boots and show just a peek-a-boo of thigh.  The booties were an old purchase as well from Nine West.  I honestly kind of forgot about them until I stumbled upon them a few weeks ago.  There’s nothing like dusting off  a great pair of shoes and giving them new life.  Do you wear winter shorts?  If so, I’d love to see how you rock them.

Revisiting a Classic: Houndstooth

Houndstooth is one of those classic prints that never goes out of style. Once worn by aristocrats meandering the lush greenery of the U.K. duck hunting for sport is now worn by all.   I used to not be a huge fan of this pattern because it seemed a little granny to me, but recently I have revisited this classic and I view it in a whole new light. It helps that designer have branched out from just coats and capes to flirty shorts and body con dresses giving this traditional look new life. I’m also loving the use of bright colors in leiu of the traditional black and white. Have you embraced this classic pattern with any key pieces in your wardrobe? Please feel free to share your favorite houndstooth looks.
