a shorts story

 

top <dolan>, shorts <geren ford>, wedges <matiko>, necklace <amrita singh>, bracelets <the limited, retropolitan and gifted>, headband <anthropologie>

i’m crazy about dressy shorts!  i used to be a little timid about wearing heels with shorts (i still am a bit), but here wedges make the look a little more casual.  since these shorts are pretty short, i wore them with a fuller top.  you will usually find me with a statement necklace and i adore this necklace.  it goes with just about everything.  happy endings!

remix

top <fei>, sweater <willow and clay>, shorts <jcrew>, booties <chloe>, bag <antik batik>, jewelry <antique and gifted>

shorts coupled with booties is probably one of my favorite combinations. luckily a “cold” front came through okc:), so i was able to wear these wonderful booties without much of a sweat.  these chloe booties are soft as can be and fit like a glove.  the chunky heel gives just enough support making these heels incredibly comfortable! as with any closet, the ability to remix pieces is a reflection of one’s style and it’s pretty much necessary to remix your daily looks (unless you have the means to shop continuously).  this sweater can be thrown over almost anything (maxi dresses, tanks, long sleeved tops). see how i wore it last here.  with it’s versatility and shiny, metallic fabric (a major fall 2012 trend), this sweater will make an easy transition to fall.

“pear” of shorts

top <zara>, sweater <sparrow>, shorts <daughters of the liberation>, wedges <matisse>, necklace <anthropologie>, bag <gifted>

dresses, shorts and tops with repeated prints are “in,” no doubt.  from prints of bunny rabbits to strawberries, these prints are whimsical, light-hearted and just-plain-fun!  these culottes have a “pear” print: a perfect print for a farmer’s market and/or trip to the grocery store.  paired with a mint green top, wedges, straw bag, and frilly sweater, i’m dreaming of fruits, vegetables and local flavor!
