Iâ€™ve noticed more and more smart womenÂ rocking shorts for a night out. Itâ€™s just so hot and sticky in Florida — withÂ restaurants still packed withÂ outdoor seating — that denimÂ or a maxi dress can make me go into gross sweat mode. Enter = shorts! Simple and genius.
Like I mentioned in Mondayâ€™s post, shorts have become a staple for me this season, great for every occasion. I found this pair recently at Target for a cool $19.99 — now on sale for $14,99 — and couldnâ€™t resist. I grabbed this vest on the way to the fitting room, and bam, outfit! Donâ€™t you love when the unexpected happens in the fitting room? This swingy moto vest, which I totally didnâ€™t need, is my new favorite. I could easily layer it over a dress, wear with a tank and work-appropriate pants, and style it with denim for a night out (in the fall!). Itâ€™s just cool. Not to digress on the shorts, but did I mention they also come in solid hot pink and a solid bright blue, both with black piping? Very cool. Theyâ€™re a lower rise so a drapy top that you can do a half tuck is ideal, and Iâ€™m also thinking these shorts could be perfect for any pregnant readers. The rise and elastic band in the back would be really comfyâ€¦ and work post pregnancy.
