SHORTS-not just for summer!

Shorts are not only a cut off look for staying cool in the summer, but a new way to add interest to your wardrobe. Just by adding knee-high socks with tall boots, tights and booties, or even just a fun pair of heels or wedges while the weather is still fairly warm in the early fall, you can take your casual everyday look and turn it into something "dressy" enough for work or a night out on the town.

Check out this look, posted by another fellow blogger, Pretty Pleased. She is wearing light grey tweed shorts with a simple shirt, leather jacket, and fun Seychelles wedges. I own & LOVE these shoes! (Seychelles Hawk) This is one way to wear wool or tweed shorts in early fall when the temperatures are still fairly warm.
*The ladies of this blog own a great boutique on the east coast, Hallelu. Check it out for some fun and unique items!

There really are many ways to wear shorts all year round...they can be just as versatile as a skirt, while creating a more unique and intriguing look. For the more traditional look, there are suiting options-a matching blazer & shorts as compared to the typical and expected trousers or pencil skirt.

Wearing shorts is easy...just choose your look.

Shorts + Print Tights + Basic Heels + Simple Blouse

Shorts + Knee-High Socks + Tall Boots + Cami + Casual Blazer

Shorts + Dark, Thick Tights + Tall Boots + Favorite Sweater

Have fun pairing different pieces with your shorts. Don't get caught up in the fact that they are shorts, just work with them like you would a skirt.....and be creative!
