As For Me, I Am A Watercolor

the clothes horse, theclotheshorse, fashion, style, retro, vintageI probably wear more shorts in the fall and winter than I do in the summer...which is still to say I don't wear shorts that often. Perhaps this summer in Virginia that will change, but somehow I doubt it. Still, I like the look of shorts with tights and the freedom of movement they allow. These shorts also seemed like the perfect compliment for my new blouse from Modcloth. It's such a pretty, silky blouse and has a great deep v back with button detail.the clothes horse, theclotheshorse, fashion, style, retro, vintagethe clothes horse, theclotheshorse, fashion, style, retro, vintagethe clothes horse, theclotheshorse, fashion, style, retro, vintagethe clothes horse, theclotheshorse, fashion, style, retro, vintage

  1. I am absolutely in love with this outfit - especially the scarf!
    I agree with you: I love to wear shorts and tights in the winter.

  2. I do like your blouse a lot and also those shoes. Watercolors best describe your look here! Since I'm not seeing the V back of the blouse, does the blouse ever make you feel cold because of that one exposed part? I'm sure the scarf'll do it! :)

  3. I've been wearing shorts & tights all month, but now that it's snowed in nyc it's officially too cold. VERY good colors in this outfit, tho!

  4. oh me too, i feel i can be so much more sassy wearing shorter shorts in the winter paired with tights & probably over the knee socks for warmth too!
    ps. love the way the scarf is paired here too rebecca. i love pic #3

  7. In addition to hardly wearing pants most of the year, you hardly wear denim. So that you're wearing denim shorts, it's a double whammy against your usual.

    But honestly, nothing in your wardrobe seems "usual" or "unusual". Your style is both modern and vintage chic at the same time.

    I wonder when the cold and snow will hit you? If it does at all. DC got snow last year. But that's quite a bit north of you, no?

    I love the long scarf. Those are always so fun to wear.

  11. @Mae Lu, It's been hitting us! We've had snow twice (doesn't stick for more than a day) and it's been in the 20s for more than a week--I just don't dress super wintry! :)

  12. I really love this one. I think it's because that scarf actually manages to make blue a warm colour, and I think it just goes so excellently with the tights and the blouse. Also because I love the boots. Mahogany is a great shade for footwear. ; )

  21. I'm not so good at shorts either. I keep wanting to try the shorts with tights look until I remember that all my shorts are athletic...

  32. I've been warming up to the shorts/tights look lately. I think it makes you look super tall actually!! Maybe thats your wonderfully oversized scarf... I could have used that today!!
