Winter Shorts

So sorry about that little detour yesterday, but I promise today I will stick to talking about fashion. I do want to say I appreciate everyone's comments and thanks for putting up with my occasional rants. Anybody get anything at the sale today? I will have to live vicariously through you since I'm banned from shopping until January. :-(

We are having a little heat wave of sorts in my neck of the woods this week. It's been in the 70's. It's so hard to dress during this type of weather because it's chilly in the morning, but warm in the afternoon. Since we are having a heat wave, I decided to break out my shorts - my winter shorts that is. I got these from The Limited a couple of weeks ago. This is probably the only pair of winter shorts I will buy, because they are just not that practical in my opinion. I got charcoal grey because I thought that would go with the most things. I based this outfit around the shoes. I wore my purple Claudine Tee to compliment the purple in the shoes. I liked how it turned out! It feels good to step outside my comfort zone and try different things! Speaking of stepping out, I decided to try a photo shoot under my carport. It's not the best lighting, but at least it's something different than my hallway. Have a good night!

  1. This outfit is AMAZING! I'm crazy about your shoes especially.

    I probably won't be shopping until January either. Dang holidays! ;)

  2. I really like your winter shorts look! I actually bought a pair of winter shorts last January from Anthro, but they had some odd pleated detail so I never ended up wearing them. Guess when I finally returned them??? August (as in 8 months later!) Gotta love Anthro's return policy!

    But now I am inspired to track down a pair and try a winter shorts look of my own. It has also been unseasonably warm up here -- mid 60s yesterday. Crazy! Usually, I have to defrost my windshield at this time of the year.

  3. Great OOTD Bonnie, love the shorts, tights, shoes combo. You look smart for work but like you could carry this through for an evening out as well :)

  4. Hot legs! I really like how you translated the shorts for cooler weather with the tights underneath. It's a lovely outfit and looks youthful but grown up at the same time. I'm sure you can last until January to purchase new items from Anthro :-)

  5. I'm loving the Winter Shorts on you, Bonnie! And that particular purple of the shirt is one of my absolute favorite shades :)

  6. Those shoes are fantastic. Love them!
