Shorts in Winter? Yes.

Hi, dolls!

I'm sure you've been seeing more and more of this look lately. It's now totally acceptable to wear your shorts in the dead of winter with tights underneath. I'm cold just thinking about it, but we're going to try it out today. Bear with me here as we bare it all, because I've never done this before.

Let's start with this lovely "short and sweet" ruffle blazer from Anthropologie. I know... I'm obsessed with anything with ruffles. Like yesterday's denim jacket, this also has shorter sleeves so we can show off our fabulous accessories.

This white racerback tank is from Charlotte Russe. It's simple, yet feminine and flattering. It works well with the blazer since it's length goes a little past the hips, while the blazer will probably only go just above your bootie. This way the "short and sweet" blazer won't leave you looking too SHORT... but we'll keep the sweet. :)

And now for the shorts... I was torn between black shorts and denim. When I picture the whole look together, I think these denim short short short shorts would look the best overall. However, if you're trying to be a little less casual, you could do black shorts also. These ones are from Charlotte Russe for $22... not too bad, but you sure aren't getting a lot of fabric out of it.

These sheer black tights are from Urban Outfitters but you can get them a lot cheaper anywhere else... like Rite Aid. Save your $ for your statement pieces.

I LOVE these Fergie black gallop boots! They are great quality, too. You can tell even in the picture that these will last you a long time and stand up to a lot of wear and tear.

I've been wanting to use this jewelry for so long but didn't have the right outfit to go with it. This necklace and bracelet are from J.Crew. Aren't they just fantastic? A little on the pricier side but they would go great with this outfit. It brightens up the black and white look, and turns it from bland to glam. I'd just match this up with some simple stud pearl earrings.

And finally, we can head out with this Metallic Beacon Tobo from J.Crew. It has a nice little gold shimmer to it, but it's not overwhelming. Classic and Elegant.

More tomorrow!
Peace and Love,
Annie Clay
