Now and Later – Shorts

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!

The Now of Now and Later

The Now of Now and Later

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, 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?
