Floral shorts … summer staple.
My obsession with shorts (particularly floral shorts) continues unabated, despite yesterday’s post on the lovely wrap skirts around for this season. My collection of shorts can be matched only by my collection of sky high heels; which I continue to purchase thinking I will wear them to various press days, but then remember I’ve got to schlepp on the train and tube all day, so the comfy flats win out every time. But the shorts do get an outing or two, particularly when that strange orb like thing in the sky makes an appearance. As soon as that sun is out, I hot foot it to the closet and throw on my floral shorts with gusto.
Although my obsession started young… a few of my really old gal pals will remember a serious pair of turquoise floral shorts back in the day, but since my stint in New York – where the weather actually agrees to cooperate with my fixation, my shorts collection has become a thing to marvel at. Short shorts, long shorts, patterned shorts, textured shorts… shorts to grow into and shorts I’ve grown out of… there are a whole mess of shorts lurking in my wardrobe that’s for sure.
So for this season, my shorts du jour are these floral babies. Acceptable in the work place or on the beach – these cuties are from J.Crew and sold out, but you can get similar here. The jewelled collar shirt is J.Crew, as is the wool bomber sweater-jacket…. note to self… stop stalking that store.
