Cold Weather Shorts

Aqua blouse, Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent vest, Forever 21 shorts, tights, & necklace, Steve Madden booties, vintage clutch



This outfit might have been my favorite "holiday date" ensemble of the month.  I love winter shorts for their comfort and versatility and this pair from Forever 21 has become a cold weather staple in my wardrobe.  I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas weekend and were able to spend time with family and friends!

Yes! Love this! I've been thinking about shorts and 'summer' clothes non-stop for some reason, but your version is a lot more pratical than mine haha

While I find the idea of "winter shorts" a bit odd, you look fantastic. I now love Winter Shorts!

You totally rock the shorts + tights. I really love the sequin-y vest too!

You look amazing, the whole outfit is awesome from the shoes to the vest and necklace. CA is a perfect place to wear winter shorts since we never get snow or crazy cold weather!

Love this look on you! The tights make the outfit. I have been wearing tights 24/7 this season and love it. Hope you had a great holiday!

I have been wanting to wear winter shorts for awhile now, but not sure if they are office appropriate.

Molly said...

YES! I looooove your winter shorts. This settles it, I NEED a pair. I love the way you styled them too! So festive without being "Christmas overboard". Nicely played.

Happy (almost) 2011!!!
