Shorts are the New Skirt

Sweater: Zara (similar), Shorts: Madewell (similar), Belt: Nine West, Shoes: c/o Steve Madden, Eyeglasses: Tiffany & Co., Watch: Michael Kors, Bracelets: J.Crew

Okay, so maybe the title isn’t technically fashion-fact (just in case it is, you heard it here first), but these silky shorts really are a great alternative to a skirt. I dressed them down here with a comfy sweater and loafers, but they could easily transition into evening with a sexy tank or a comfortable T and heels. Or pair a blazer with silk shorts for an updated preppy look. What do you think? Are silky shorts the new skirts, or what?!

I’ve always adored pointed-toe shoes for their super-feminine/kick your ass dichotomy… Let’s be honest a round or peep-toe style just won’t get the job done. These are some of my favorites for Fall. (Notice that one pair is much bigger and more central than the others… Yuppp, would kill for these Wangs.)

No Fuss, No Frills

Dress: Cynthia Rowley (similar), Shoes: COACH (old, similar), Bag: Rebecca Minkoff (also love this one), Watch: Michael Kors, Bangle: old, totally coveting this one, Ring: Allison Moses

I wore this easy, black midi-dress this weekend for brunch and some errands… I love a dress like this for summer, because you can change it up in so many ways. This time I styled it with a touch of tribal. For Fall, I can layer with a sweater and some brogues! Hope you all had a wonderful, long weekend!
