Short and Chic

05b54861c7bb8beec0bf5c33218799c9Waiting to check in for our flight home I saw the chicest outfit of the holiday: striped shorts teamed with sandals and the simplest of off-white tops. She looked so chic I immediately started planning how I would get the look…810f3ca6d2944f24a862e9a0e3ff2130Brown legs are a must (fake is good, here), so I’ll slap on This Works Perfect Legs Skin Miracle or Perfect Legs Gradual Tan and then add these gorgeous boucle shorts which are smart enough to wear out (or for work if your office dress code is less than formal). I’ve recently acquired this marled tangerine Tippi sweater from J.Crew – I think they’d make a lovely pair. Or tuck in this neatly-fitted chambray shirt or a sheer summer tee. The temptation would be to add leg-lengthening heels, but resist! Flats all the way, my friends. Preferably uber-stylish ones from Ancient Greek or this summer’s hottest shoe – the espadrille (try these lace-up bargains). I also like these simple black shorts, this pair of scalloped shorts and these ikat print beauties.
