It’s been unseasonably warm here in North Carolina this last week or so. It was like 63 degrees on Christmas. But the week before it was barely above 30. HUH?! So, every morning when I get up I feel like I have to check the temperature before I figure out what I’m going to wear for the day. Because it could either be a high of 30 or a high of 70. I have no clue.
But regardless, one of my favorite things to do is to “winterize” very “summer” clothes. Whether it’s a skirt, a tank top, or even my favorite lace shorts, I love a good challenge for taking a summery clothing piece into the winter…
These lace shorts I got last year are my absolute favorite so I set out to style them for colder weather. Of course I wouldn’t wear them if there’s snow on the ground or anything like that… but if it’s just a chilly fall or winter day where the temperature’s hovering in the 50’s, who says you can’t wear on your lace shorts with some tights and a pair of boots?
It’s one of those outfits that looks way more complicated than it actually is. People will think, “Oh wow, you’re dressed up!” when all you did was just throw a couple of items together for a completed look!
This outfit also has the pattern / texture / shine mix, too… which brings interest! I also love the colors… maroon / burgundy / marsala / whatever-color-you-want-to-call-this is such a classic fall / winter neutral color.
