Return of the Cocktail Shorts

I don’t remember what possessed me to pick up these short-short, high-waisted, fancy shorts at TJ Maxx, but I’ve gotten plenty of use out of them. At $14.99, the cost per wear is 88 cents.

Shirt, Fifth Sun. Shorts, Sans Souci. Shoes, Gianni Bini. Sunglasses, Meow Meow. Purse, Anne Klein (thrifted).

The previous sixteen outfits:

Phew, that’s a lot of leg!

365 from Saturday and Sunday:

Eating healthy and getting exercise so I can keep squeezing into these shorts.

Sneakers and a Dress

As I’ve begun wearing heels less often, sneakers have entered my consideration set. Sneakers and shorts. Sneakers and denim skirts. But what about sneakers and a dress? To work? I gave it a whirl.

Dress, Gap. Belt, thrifted. Shoes, Vans. Sunglasses, Girl Props. Necklace, Banana Republic. Purse, Anne Klein (thrifted).

I LOVED this outfit. I felt comfortable, but still put together.

I think the secrets to wearing sneakers with a dress to work are:

1. Clean sneakers in good condition.
2. A skirt that falls above the knee or at the ankle. Knee- and mid-length hems can look frumpy with flat sneakers.
3. Extra dressy accessories, like a lady-like purse and a statement necklace.

Is this a look you’d try?

I wore those same sneakers to take Jasper to the vet this afternoon. (But I changed out of the dress.)

We always do selfies to pass time in the examination room, waiting for the vet.
