Happy Monday everyone!  Here’s a outfit that I wore out to dinner with Justin last week.  I’m not really a “shorts” girl, but these Milly for Banana Republic shorts caught my eye instantly and I knew I couldn’t leave the store without them in hand.  The pretty print and bright colours work perfectly for a more dressed up look.

 

Speaking of perfect, Beth from Seersucker & Saddles is also showcasing a dressy shorts look below.  I’ve been reading Beth’s blog almost since she started it, and I was immediately drawn to her preppy, polished style.  Plus, we both share a major love for colour.  If you haven’t already done so, you absolutely must check out Seersucker & Saddles.  I know you’ll love Beth’s style just as much as I do.

    I’m a huge fan of printed shorts and pairing them with heels for a night time look. You look amazing, the shorts look great on you, you have great legs show them off 😉

    Jenny, how Darling are those coloured Shorts on you. You paired it perfectly with the black neutrals, so the Shorts Keep the centerpiece of your Ensemble. You really are in great shape my dear :-). Funny, I am wearing Shorts on my post today too but in a more casual way. This look is super sophisticated and you should wear it more often 🙂

    I was very happy with this Milly/BR line. I bought a dress & a top from this line that I will be posting tomorrow. Love how you paired it with black & dressed it up.

    It would be a shame not to wear shorts with such a lovely shape, you certainly take the pair to another level, and makes it look really elegant, what a beautiful look!
