The long and short of it!

Here’s to a very happy and healthy New Year, everyone!!

In the spirit of celebration, and in honour of the “clean slate” that is today, I’m debuting a brand-new look!! I’ve never done shorts in anything but a casual way before…so this Forever 21 quilted pleather pair (care of my mom, who sent some Christmas money!) is truly unexplored territory!!

Opaque tights and booties made this feel a little more seasonal for me; the sparkly necklace, studded tank, and Chanel-esque jacket are my festive touches. And just because I’m a newbie, I’ve added my knee-length black Only coat for a bit of extra coverage!!

What do you think? Can the right pair of shorts be appropriate for a more dressed-up look?!

    Awesome! I love the whole layered look and the shorts are fabulous! I think what really makes this work is that the colors are so "together" but the texture is so varied.

    I don't remember the last time I wore shorts, but this makes me want to run out and find a pair.

      I really liked these shorts as soon as I tried them on, but I just wasn't sure I'd get a lot of opportunity to wear them. Now I'm so glad that I did take them home, though!! You're right about the great texture, Shara…it gives a monochrome look that extra pop, doesn't it?!
