wool shorts + velvet blazer

 

wool shorts, velvet blazer and over the knee boots - thrifting diva Yes, I am rocking shorts in the middle of winter!  But as you already know, “winter” in San Diego really feels like early spring.  This is the perfect weather for experimenting with fashion and of course layering.

  1. Yes ma’am!! Loving your style! I actually plan to blog a look soon with shorts here on the east coast. However, I am further south than DC. So hopefully it will be okay 🙂

  2. As always, you look smashing. I haven’t worn shorts this season because it’s cold, although, I am wearing tights with everything so I probably should.

    I hate wearing shorts in the summer since I hate my legs, so, really, this would probably be rather ideal.
