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!

nautical escape

top <maeve>, trousers <level 99>, wedges <l.a.m.b.>, bag <diane von furstenberg>, hat <purchase in mexico>, necklace <anthropologie>, bracelets <anthropologie and gifted>

wearing this look i’d like to find myself at a beautiful resort in the hamptons or palm beach.  this look is lightweight, surprisingly comfortable and perfectly nautical for a seaside venture.  it also creates the perfect silhouette.  peplum tops are the ultimate waist defining top.  i love its simplicity. with its barely-there abstract floral design, it contrasts these leg lengthening, bright pants nicely.  with a wide brimmed hat, having a similar nautical feel, a cocktail by the sea would be quite fitting!

“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!
