Bundled Up In Shorts

I wore this outfit for a photo shoot for work on a chilly day. Weird to be taking photos of someone that isn't myself - I've gotten used to me being my only model. November is crisp, and I am never prepared to be outside all day. This is as warm as it gets for me, especially since I'm still going strong on my New Year's Resolution to not wear pants for all of 2012. Best resolution ever I tell you.

  2. Very cute! I love shorts and tights, and have been dreaming about wearing a similar combo once I get access to my full wardrobe again. Stay warm!

  4. Wow, I can't believe you're not going to wear pants for a whole year! Kudos to you!

    Seriously. I couldn't do it. Even with fleece lined tights my legs get too cold.

    I love your jacket and boots.

    1. I had five in all, but this one was kind of a style challenge. I always feel uncomfortable in pants and very frumpy in jeans, and I felt like when I wore jeans, it didn't work out for me, and I'd be sitting there uncomfortable and feeling uncute. It actually turned out great and has been a great thing for my confidence - I feel ultimately better in dresses and shorts and probably won't go back to wear pants much at all.

  11. So gorgeous! I love your jacket and those gloves are amazing! Your New Years Resolution is great too - I'm working on that goal as well - something about wearing dresses and skirts make me feel more confident and pretty. But I do still wear pants - just not jeans (or I try).

    Awesome post (as always),

  15. That is the funniest resolution ever! I actually made the opposite one, to find some good-fitting, high-waisted trousers I love but that was just a few months ago. Do you ever wear sweater tights? Word on the street is they’re warmer than pants. Love this classic outfit, it looks comfy and so put together. Those gloves are amazing!

    1. I have some, and they are warm, but I feel like they are bulky, especially up top, and that drives me nuts! Truthfully, I just don't like things on my legs. I wore no tights yesterday and it was 38 degrees out. Haha

  16. I keep promising myself to reduce my trouser consumption, but often find myself reaching for a pair. :) Must try and wear skirts more. x

  26. I love the black and burgundy together! I really want to find a pair of black scalloped shorts to wear in every season! So cool that you got to take pictures of other for work as well. Hope you're having a beautiful day!

  27. What an interesting resolution. Hope you write about it when the year is through!

    Love the idea of a ring OVER the glove too.

  28. That has to be the most clever new years resolution i've ever heard. I love this outfit and i'm jealous that you are able to wear tights and boots while I'm stuck in hot and sweaty Florida.

  36. i was just going to ask you where your bag was from and then i read that you designed it?! that's so awesome. i really like it and want one for myself! ha

  37. Oh wow, you have gorgeous photography, I might have a new photography crush now! I really like those first two shots, the mood is great and I love the setting with the boardwalk and the tree right in the corner. (Plus, the big leather handbag is stunning. Mmm, I love broken in bags, they always have the best personalities.)

  40. Pretty scalloped shorts. I love your resolution. That is really amazing. I would love to wear skirts all year round but I love lounging in jeans so much, though I feel most comfortable in skirts. You are so so pretty!!!

  41. There are so many aspects of this outfit that I love. The ring over the gloves is pretty much my favorite! I also dig the shorts over tights, I do that all the time. What a great resolution, that's so clever. You look amazing in dresses so it's a win-win :)

    P.S. That's so funny that you tried on the same dress. I'm sure it would have looked great on you, but I think I would trade you the larger bust for the dress haha!

  45. One of my friends always says that if you have to wear tights with your shorts, you shouldn't be wearing shorts. This is proof that shorts and tights rock. I also adore the handmade hat. I always try to pull off similar hats and I end up looking so silly. Maybe I'll give it another try this winter.

    I love being able to take pictures of other people besides myself. Sometimes it's just nice having a different subject in front of the lens. ;P

  46. Oooooo girl, love the bag. I hope you will tell us more about your bag designing dealo! I've discovered brightly colored pants in summer/fall 2012 so now I wear pants 2/3 days of the week! I was on a good no pants run in the beginning of the year but these darn bright red cords have gotten the best of me!

  48. You got those gloves I love from ASOS! I bet they are as cute in person as they are online. :) I can't believe your resolution was to not wear pants. That is quite the task! I never keep my resolutions, so I never make them. LOL. Love your top with the sheer panel! <3

  51. This is such a cute outfit! I didn't realize that you weren't wearing pants all of this year - that is such a great resolution. Wish I had the power to do that, but I just love my skinny jeans too much for those days when I wake up 10 minutes before class.
