Style Me Chic: Dressy Shorts

Shorts are showing up everywhere this season – even the red carpet! The Dressy Short is a trend that is hanging around… so I decided to give it a try!

Dressy shorts need to be short, in order to keep from looking matronly, and pair them with heels or wedges. My shorts are from Old Navy: I could not resist the polka dots!

I paired them with a blazer I picked up on consignment for only $10.

What do you think? I can’t decide if I like this outfit or not.

I'm also linking up with Monday Mingle!

  1. I think the shorts would work better with a more casual outfit. I love all of the pieces individually – just not as much together. I think the blazer screams “PROFESSIONAL!” while the shorts say, “Eh, not so much. We’re just cute.” πŸ˜‰

    So, all of that to say: I’d probably go with a white (embellished, of course) tank or tee with the shorts. Save the blazer (which looks great on you) for a cute mini or jeans.

  2. I like those shorts! I think they look cute with the blazer. A printed or color top might be fun to try out too.

  3. I like the shorts and the blazer, but not together. I don’t like those wedges with the shorts either.

    • Yeah – those shoes did not work. I was trying to work with my closet.. guess i need to go shoe shopping! DARN πŸ˜‰
