i know i have said this before, but summer
is my favorite season! there is something special about
the bustling city – people out walking, biking,
and enjoying time on the water; farmers markets;
traveling to our family cabin; of course, summer
fashion can be a great deal of fun, too!
although fall has begun to make an appearance
in seattle, i am determined to hang on to some of
my favorite summer clothing items. i am not ready
to put my sandals and shorts away. just
hang in there, summer. i need a few more
of sun (and i have a few outfits i would like to wear)!
disclosure: asa of lace and pearls jewelry graciously lent me the necklace
i am wearing in today’s photos. i am thrilled to support my dear
friend and talented business owner! as per usual, all opinions are my own.
despite my pleading, i think fall weather is
around the corner; while i love jewel tones, knits
and layering, and anything plaid, i am determined
to re-style a few of my favorite summer pieces
in the coming weeks. first up?
these adorable floral shorts from zara!
shorts are an essential in every woman’s summer
wardrobe. after labor day, i typically pack up
my shorts and exchange them for leggings,
jeans, and other cool-weather styles, but not this year!
here are a few simple ways you can wear shorts in the fall:
1. add tights
black, grey, colorful or patterned tights are a quick
and easy way to add warmth and excitement to your
outfit (i.e. your shorts).
2. grab heels or booties
looking to dress up a pair of black shorts
(while also making your legs appear longer)?
heels can do this! booties are a casual alternative
and pair perfect with any fall look.
3. add a blazer or structured jacket
i recently pulled out my navy, denim, and black
blazers. i have a green bomber jacket from last
season that will pair well with casual shorts (such
as the floral pair i am wearing today).
a structured jacket of any color, fabric, or
print will go well with darker-colored shorts.
4. grab a chunky sweater
your favorite knit sweater? structured
shorts with booties (or tights and ballet flats)
are a fun way to style shorts in cooler weather.

earlier this week, i spoke of my passion for
supporting local business owners and creatives.
today, i am thrilled to be wearing one of my dear
friends’ designs, (and fellow blogger, asa of lace and pearls)
‘lace and pearls jewelry.’ asa and i have been
friends for more than two years, and i have to say, she is
one of the sweetest and most hard-working women
i know! she juggles a full-time job, blogs,
and maintains her beautiful social media platforms.
recently, asa also began making jewelry.
asa’s designs are handmade, and each piece
is crafted with exquisite detail and care. i am wearing
the lariot pendant necklace, and i cannot wait
to style it with other tops and dresses.
asa’s website will be launch soon, but in the
meantime, be sure to follow along here for updates
and new designs!
do you wear shorts in the fall?
if so, how do you style them?
