Favorite Trends - Shorts Galore

Lace and trouser shorts are everything right now. They are definitely on my list of top trends for spring and summer and I can’t seem to get enough of them. I’m a huge fan of shorts in general, but I love the fact that they are so versatile and can be worn for both formal and casual occasions.  I've always thought that lace will never go out of style. There's so much you can do with them, really and it’s just such a glamorous approach on boring every-day shorts.  I typically pair mine with an oversized blouse or tank, lots of arm candy and sky high heels. My only tip when wearing crochet or lace shorts is to be careful with what you pair them with…SOMETIMES, depending on the garment, the white ones especially, tend to look a bit like pajamas or loungers.  So make sure to pair them with something tailored and shoes other than flip flops so it doesn’t look as if you´ve just rolled out of bed!

Trouser shorts are equally major!  Instead of choosing the same dresses and skirts for office-wear, turn to stylish evening shorts to dazzle downtown with fashion know-how; or at least attempt. It’s true that a good pair of perfectly aligned/draped dress shorts are going to cost a fair bit of money (with such little material necessary to make), but keep in mind that these shorts are not a fleeting trend and will be used many times over and in SO many different ways.  The perfect fit is worth a few more dollars spent!

Favorite Trends - The SNEAKER

| Wearing: | Blouse - Top Shop | Tights - American Apparel | Shoes - Aldo | Jewelry - Stella & Dot | Watch - Michael Kors |

Let me start by saying I am OBSESSED with this season’s trend of sneaker wedges. Sneakers were once just for the gym, basketball players and 12 year old boys - but not anymore. The comfort of a shoe that protects your feet from the daily wear and tear of the streets is now considered suitable for every occasion, from a workout to the workplace.  I’ve worn mine with a loose summer frock, jeans, trouser shorts and tights… they are majorly versatile. Ever practical woman and major trendsetter seem to be wearing them.  Being the shorty that I am, wearing comfortable fab red sneakers with a little height is like the ultimate icing on the cake!!  Heels are great and all, but sometimes our wee feet get tired.  Luckily, this style is readily available at a price point we can all afford from designers like Marc Jacobs, Steve Madden or Aldo Shoe Company.  Whether you go with traditional running shoes or rock some height, the element of cool comfort can’t be beat.
