With the weather transitioning back and forth between hot and cool, its got to be time for more Now and Later. This time with a focus on shorts!
Today is going to be a “Now” look for the Southern Hemisphere but tomorrow I will share the “Later” look. Of course if you are in the Northern Hemisphere, you can just flip them!
Now and Later – Now: This is a really comfy look that is just nice enough to get away with wearing to work. Or at least I can get away with wearing it to work. The shorts are a pair I purchased last year from Boohoo.com, on sale of course, and I have chosen one of my Ralph Lauren shirts to wear with them. I like the gold tones in the shorts and shirt and have carried that threw the rest of the look.
I know for most people this is a look that is far too casual for work but it would be a great weekend look if you were heading out to meet friends. If you need to run a lot of errands you could always wear leather sandals and still look great.
Accessorizing Shorts – Now: Working with the gold tones I opted for some mustard cork-heel shoes and neutral Coach handbag. The jewelry is my favourite pair of rose-gold earrings, vintage copper bracelets mixed with a couple of wooden bangles, my Marc Jacobs watch and a beaded necklace that ties the mustard and neutrals together.
Again, just dressy enough that I can get away with wearing this look to work.
Well, that’s the Now side of Now and Later – shorts. Tomorrow, the Later!
Do you wear shorts to work? Or are they only for play?
