A Short Story (Part 2)

Back in April I announced my love for short shorts (A Short Story).  And I maintain that support even now in November.   Honestly, my love may have only grown deeper.

What makes them even better now that it is cold out?  No tan required.  After all, just like a winter skirt, winter shorts are best worn with a pair of tights.  In fact, if you are unsure of how to wear shorts during the cooler temps, skirts are the perfect point of reference.

Wait, you haven’t found a pair of winter shorts that speak to you?  Well you are in luck—here are a few of my favorite picks…

Do you wear winter shorts?  How do you like to style them?


  1. I do, sometimes. My 11 year old is the queen of shorts in the winter. Her fave. . .to wear them with wooly boots, and a scarf. Its a cute look!

  2. I wore wool shorts when I was in college but it went way out, and now it’s back…not sure, maybe if I find a great vintage pair…or maybe will get sucked into the lace trend. It’s so fresh right now, I do love the look. You would look great in it!
