business shorts...?

business shorts

When I saw Jessica (from whatiwore) wearing shorts with tights, I knew I wanted to be a little copy cat and do it too! I have put together a 'shorts-over-tights' outfit several times, but Friday was the first time that one made it out of my bedroom. I played it safe with grays and blacks, super classic denim shorts, and my favorite scarf! (have you noticed it's my fave!?!) I love wearing super tall socks with boots. It makes me feel like I have super tall boots (which I would LOVE but cannot afford!) They also happen to keep your legs hella warm! Is it totally a style cop out to try a daring idea and then mix it with blacks and grays? 

That night I changed into my super stylish (and not pictured) SLHS Swim and Dive T-Shirt to coach my divers in their second to last dual meet! One more this Friday and we are off to districts! Oh! Let's say that's why I wore that scarf, because it is one of the Seahawks colours!

  1. Honestly, I think the shorts-with-tights looks best with black or possibly grey or navy shorts. When I saw girls wearing this in Europe, before the trend hit the US, they always wore the equivalent of "short trousers" - as if you shrunk dress pants. Here, we wear it a little more casual, but I still can't wrap my head around jean shorts over tights. I think Jessica wore it best with black shorts and a brighter top.
    Congrats on braving the style outside your closet, though!

  2. Yvonne - I totally agree! I wish I had more professional shorts... I liked wearing the outfit - but I agree that the jean is just a bit wrong :) Hit or miss, it's what I was wearing!
