Shorts and Color


You guys help me more than you know.  Not only do you support me as an audience, you inspire me with your ideas.  When you put together unusual outfits, I feel free to follow your lead.

So when someone as stylish as Larissa wears shorts with colored tights, I believe I can too.  Without role-models, I wouldn't try half the things you inspire me to do.

I'm playing here with bright colors.  I mix several and hope they gel.  (I'm wearing  pink tights; they almost disappear in the photos.) 

What do you think?

  3. This is a perfect example of wearing colors that go together but may not actually "match" - perfect!

  7. I LOVE PINK AND GREEN! I've actually been looking at my single pair of shorts wondering if I could wear them with tights.

  8. Oh very cute! You do have killer legs and you should show them off! I love that top too. Pink and green is always a fantastic combination and you could pick up that green colour in accessories like bracelets too. I am not brave enough to wear shorts at all, and not even with tights, but then I don't have your legs.

  11. I never thought about wearing shorts with tights! I will look at them in a new light. Well, when I have shorts that aren't swiss cheese denim from when I was 20 I will. :D

    These are the most feminine shorts I think I have ever seen. Good match for your killer legs! You have a sporty look with the socks and shoes. I think it's because the socks are about the same height as leg warmers. :D

    I like your new pose in the penultimate photograph.

  12. Adorable look! Those bright colors are lovely together. I've never worn shorts with tights before - I think I'd get some funny looks here, but you pull it off well. I think this would also be really cute bare-legged with a strappy flat sandal.

  13. Such a vibrant, cute outfit! That style of shorts take me back to the days of hanging out at roller skating rinks (something few of today's youngins have likely had the fun of experiencing - and yes, I fully acknowledge that I sound far older than I am with that statement ;)).

    1. Let's see... if you went to roller skating rinks in the 1950's, that would make you... in your Seventies!

    1. I never plan that, but it works out that way 'cause my color-preference is consistent.

  15. I love this! I love the little tiny scallops on the shorts too! The best thing about bright colors and prints, is that you can get so much more out of them than you think. I feel that most people would pair these shorts with a plain colored shirt, etc, so that they are the focus of the outfit. But sometimes, pairing something like these with an equally awesome top, just works!

  16. Love you enthusiasm. You are right you can barely see those pink tights. Love the shorts.

  17. Oh thank you so much for mentioning me in here! You made my day :)
    I hope you had a nice Easter-holiday-weekend!

  18. If I had your legs I'd be wearing short shorts all the time : )

    I like the pocket detail on the shorts too. They remind me of shorts from the 80's with those colours.
