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.

Get the Look: Printed Pencil Skirt

The only thing hotter than a printed pencil skirt is Naya Rivera in a printed pencil skirt.  This small screen vixen is quickly becoming a rising style icon in Hollywood. Here she is wearing one of my favorite silhouettes with a pencil skirt and peplum top.  This look may be a little intimidating to some wearing a fitted skirt that has a pattern.  It may draw a little more attention to your hips and rear than you may desire, but a mirrored print tends to be more flattering because it draws the eye toward the middle.  A peplum top is a perfect item for all ladies to incorporate in their wardrobe because it creates a beautiful hourglass shape.  I also love pairing a body-hugging outfit with a lace up sandal.  The height of the heel and the bareness of the sandal elongates the legs.  I have created a similar look to Naya’s for the fashionista on a budget :-)
