Lady Blogger Meet Up

Is that... could it be… a chill in the air? Yes, it’s true!It’s cold in O-town, home to a blazing hot sun and scorching temperatures! Finally, winter is here! I couldn’t resist dusting off my (not often used) favorites:closed toe booties, toasty tights, and a cozy blazer. Luckily, the perfect event was already on the calendar forthis warmer-than-usual outfit, the Central Florida Lady Blogger Meet Up! (You can read about my experience here: Central Florida Top 5)

This layered combo is one of my favorite outfits to pair with this bi-polar weather. The cotton blazer keeps me warm in the crisp morning air but it’s light enough to stowaway once the day warms up. And the blouse and tweed shorts are a stand-alone outfit - if the temperature rises, I can sneak away and remove the tights too. It’s a truly versatile ensemble … and colorful too! The blue blazer gives the usual fall colors a boost and takes them from dreary to dramatic. It’s amazing how a pop of color can change the spirit of an outfit!

Fashion tip: If you are short in stature (like moi), consider pairing short shorts (but not so short that they are hot pants) with dark colored tights. It tricks the eye into thinking your legs are long and lean. Pair it with some heels and voila! You are now practically a runway model…okay, maybe a stretch but you’ll look a little longer than usual!

What I’m rockin:
Blazer: Forever 21
Blouse: A’gaci
Shorts: Forever 21
Tights: Target
Booties: Charlotte Russe
Bracelet: Miami Merchandise Mart (Best place to buyaccessories!)
Watch: Burberry


  1. Love that outfit, really cute shorts!

  2. Alright missy....what exactly constitutes as a 'chill' in the air in o-town? I am afraid to ask...and also afraid to tell you this...chill in the air in chicago is about 40. ewwwwwwwwwwww

  3. Love this look. Those shorts are great with the color of that blouse!

  4. LOL.. that day it was actually 50!! Admittedly, I wore shorts today... that bipolar weather again. 40!!! Ewww indeed. But you get to wear cute boots!

  5. You're so cute and creative! I love how you can find such great buys at inexpensive stores, and put them together to look like a million bucks!! You're adorable as a mini-model! :)

  6. haha thank you!! Glad you like it :-)

  7. I love your booties! I have one pair almost like yours and simply obsessed by them!

  8. It doesn't matter if you're 'short in stature' or 'long and lean', to use your fashion tip words.
    Actually, I almost prefer 'short', because high-heeled outfits like this one really show off the luxurious curves of your legs.
    Black tights and heels may be a trick - But you sure look feminine and sexy in them !
