Styling Shorts in the Winter

by Friday, February 19, 2016


Unless you’re living in Southern California where it’s in the 80s in the winter, you probably miss wearing shorts through the winter months.  In my household the shorts get put away starting in September and I generally don’t see them again (other than the winter blues getaways of course) until June.  But, sometimes I just get that urge to wear an adorable pair of shorts and dress them up for a date night out.

With this outfit I dressed up a pair of shorts & jacket to unleash my inner “chic rocker chick” for my husband’s work Christmas party.  I do not personally own a pair of tights or nylons so I layered the shorts over a pair of black leggings, with a simple white tank top, “pleather” jacket, cheapo boots that I purchased for a Halloween costume, and finished off with my studded Michael Kors clutch. When I came down the stairs my husband was stunned, “who wears shorts in the winter?” After 13.5 years together he should know by now not to question my fashion sense! #Wink.
