So sorry for the lack of posting lately - I just got back today from a weeklong class trip to Orlando, and unfortunately our resort didn't provide wifi strong enough to upload pictures (I kid you not). It was a helpless feeling.

I am very glad to be reentering the blogging world and to be able to post of course, but let me tell you, Orlando was beautiful and I had a wonderful time! Now that I'm back to reality and out of the 80 degree sunshine state, it's boots and sweaters for me. I can still wear my shorts though!...accompanied by tights that is.  

I've always liked the look of shorts paired with tights, and this particular pair of shorts can't be worn any other way (in my opinion.) Due to the length of these denim short shorts, I either wear them to the beach or in the winter with tights (two very different occasions.) 

My black leather boots paired with this look provide just the right amount of edge that is so appealing to me! The cool vibe this outfit gives off is perfect if you're feeling confined to a winter wardrobe's same-old jeans and coats. Break out of your winter rut! Mix up your daily ensembles with some summery pieces that swing both ways.
