Shorts

Pink Me Up

Fall fashion means bold colors and popped colors in my world. Pairing shorts with a button down or longer top in the fall helps to extend the life of your shorts. These shorts are perfect for a fall day with their bold color and scalloped edges. A heavier button down or sweater would help this outfit last all day from the morning to the cooler night. It’s also an outfit that can seamlessly transition from day to night if you are going from a brunch to dinner during the weekend.

Savor Summer

Today was the first day I wore a true “fall” outfit. Boston had a bite to the air and I need to cover up a little more. I mixed in some darker colors and heavier fabrics. While I love that first fall outfit I’m still holding out on packing away my shorts as long as possible. There’s something about shorts and a tank top that I can’t help but love anytime of the year. The thought of endless summer is what inspired this outfit.

Fall is one of the best times of the year for fun, relaxing outfits. It’s the chance to pair shorts with a big fuzzy sweatshirt or a tailored one. The days and nights are that perfect in between temperature for bare legs and covered arms.

This outfit would be perfect for a Red Sox game (Go Boston!) or any other sporting event you are attending. The layers will keep you warm when the sun goes down while the shorts will keep you cool during the first half when the sun is shining. I’m planning on wearing a similar outfit next time I go to Fenway.

Stripes All the Way

Shorts are out in full force. They are the colors of the rainbow with every design and pattern in between. Adding in a fun patterned short can make an outfit bump up from every day to something special. This illustration hits the combination of everyday casual and easy to dress up. I can see her spending her day with the cardigan on then slip it off and add a chunky necklace for a more formal nighttime look.
