I bought these shorts a few months ago because I thought they were adorable and envisioned outfits with tights and ankle booties. But I haven't worn them yet. I don't know exactly why, but I think my aversion to shorts in the summer (it is commonly thought that AZ denizens are bronze 24/7/365, but a lot of us hide from the sun and are thus pale and pasty) has carried over to the rest of the year. Something must be done to change my mindset! Showing off pale get-away-sticks doesn't seem right, but I know people do it all the time, so I set out to find some cute shorts that would look fresh for spring and wouldn't embarrass my pasty gams:
These Reed Krakoff shorts are easy, simple to wear, and the wide cuff at the bottom is very flattering. I am thinking sandals or brogues would do well....
I think I have made it clear that I love Ikat print anything, (evidence here), and these LOFT shorts are super fun, but might be more statement than I can handle!
These Modcloth shorts are romantic, affordable, and in a color that flatters pretty much every skin tone. What's not to love?
A lady-like prepster and a street-savvy urbanite could both be seen wearing these Stella McCartney lace shorts. They would happily pair with pearls or ankle booties :)
Layers of crochet and lace make these Charlotte Russe shorts super adorable:
OK, so maybe shorts aren't that bad, and with a little self-tanner I would really enjoy wearing some of these. Are you a lace and layers kind of shorts gal or do you steer towards grounded basics?
What about shorts for night? Don't worry about that, just check in tomorrow ;)
