One Short Day To The Emerald City…


Madewell, $78

Despite us all being stuck in the dead of winter right now (cabin fever anyone?!) it’s nice to know that we don’t have to wait for summer for our shorts to see the light of day. Now, I’m not talking about your denim Daisy Dukes (if you’re over 22 then those should never see the light of day again, ladies) I’m referring to silky shorts with longer hemlines. They sort of look like trousers but, well…they’re shorts!

These dress shorts are perfect for the season because you can just as easily wear them with tights in the cold weather or bare legs in the summer. Not sure how short is too short for your shorts? (Say that 10x fast…ha!) If they’re above fingertip length then they’re too short. Keep them long to keep it classy.

These bright blue shorts from Madewell are my obsession. Their neon color is so eye-catching, and the way they paired them with such a simple T-shirt and cardigan is nothing short of fashion perfection.
