Get Shorty





Sweater, Shirt & Tights (The Limited); Shorts (Gap); Boots (Nine West); Necklace (Cherie Consignment Boutique); Sunglasses (Charming Charlies); Earrings (Nordstrom)

Shorts with tights is such a fun way to winterize a summer staple. Plus, you can't help but feel a little rock and roll! Even if you aren't a fan of your legs, this style still works with the right tights and length of shorts. When my Dad and brother saw me in this outfit, I'm pretty sure they thought I was insane (I recall one of them saying, what are you wearing?), but most of the time guys just don't get it (fashion or otherwise)... It's a good thing I dress for myself and not for da boys :)

I take it you got the little midwestern heat wave out by you too?? What better way to celebrate that than with a pair of shorts! Love the blue tights = )

Very cute! I personally love the shorts and tights thing even though my husband makes fun of me! I'm curious though- do you actually walk your dog in heels?? I have little dogs too and any walk immediately turns into a run with them!

Haha, I know, guys just don't get fashion most of the time!
But you look great :) Love the color of those tights and boots.
I've tried this trend a couple times and I like how it winterized my favorite shorts. Love how you styled it!

That is too funny! My husband asks that of most the new trends I try, or if it's different from anything I've ever worn. I think you look adorable ;)

I love this look on you Heather! It's edgy and feminine. Guys will never get it - my brother says "woah" and not the good woah to what I'm wearing pretty regularly. I recently bought some faux light brown leather shorts I can't wait to put tights under! Your layering is just so chic!

This looks awesome! Coloured tights aren't the easiest thing to pull off and with tights and boots, you did a fantastic job!

Just found your blog and stopped to say hi. I like how this outfit is simple and interesting at the same time. I love how tights with shorts look, but don't have the guts to do it myself! Haha.
