Short Order

Ironically, after stating last week that I am not a big fan of shorts, I've been wearing them an abnormal amount thanks to the heat wave we're experiencing here in NY.  I always prefer a loose & flowy style because they pair equally as well with a slouchy open-knit sweater as they do with sleek tailored pieces.  I decided to dress up this floral pair with an easy tee, structured blazer + edgy necklace for happy hour with my girlfriends.

What I'm wearing:
Mossimo t-shirt (on sale here), H&M blazer (similar here or here), JCPenney shorts (similar herehere or here), Marc Fisher heels (on sale here), ASOS clutch (similar here or here), c/o LoveStylize necklace (under $25! - here),  Olivia Burton watch (similar here or here), Tobi ring (similar), Eyes: Almay Intense I-Color Eyeshadow, Lips: Revlon Lipstick Smoked Peach + Revlon Super Lustrous Lipgloss Pango Peach

I love how you've styled these shorts. I'm not really a big fan of shorts normally, but a loose style like these really appeal to me...they're more feminine and like you say are super versatile!
