Copy Cat Closet - Shorts in Winter

I could probably call this post So What I Wore Wednesday, because I still have a So What, and it's so what if I got all dressed today with makeup and everything and have no where to go except a few neighborhoods over to walk my brother in law's dog. So what if I only got dressed so that I could participate in a new link up called Copy Cat Closet over at Ma Nouvelle Mode.

So I came across Copy Cat Closet through the Twitter grapevine. They send you kind of a fashion challenge every week, then you post about it. The one I came upon was Shorts in the Winter. I thought "Hey! I have exactly two pair of shorts that I've worn exactly once between the two of them, (yes, that means I've never worn one of them and have had them for 3 years) so let's try it!"

Here is what was posted on Ma Nouvelle Mode, which I thought was super cute:

And here is what I came up with:

Shut up, yes, I'm standing on my bed and the cat's all So What the F'k Wednesday are you doing? I definitely need a tripod or to teach my dog or cat to work a camera.

Now, to the outfit. I'm not sure if it's working for me, but maybe that's my natural aversion to shorts. I tried this outfit with a pair of white, tweed-like shorts, but that definitely looked silly. Then I popped on these black shorts (which fit me way better now than they did in that post). They look better than the white shorts did, but I'm still not 100% sold on it. Ah well, I tried, and that is about all I can say about that.

Have you adventured into the land of shorts with tights? How'd it go?


  1. Once upon a time I'd do a look like this. Now I'm lazy. I think it looks good on you though! Still loving the hair. Not a cut that works for me but wish wish wish it did.

  2. I think it's cute! And I like your scarf! You could maybe try come colored tights with it? Thanks for linking up!

  3. I think colored tights would work better with the black shorts. I guess that means I just HAVE to go buy some! Darn. :)

  4. Had to come back and tell you that your post inspired my outfit for today. I'm wearing a tank with leggings and sleep shorts over them. It was too cold for the shorts alone around the house and I refuse to just rock these leggings without a long shirt or something over it. :-) Your outfit looks way better than mine!

  5. Haha! I wish I could see that! :P

  6. Super cute! I love it! I think I love the fact that you're not afraid to being you and that in itself is inspiring. (: Your hair also rocks!(:
