|Women's Perfect Khaki Shorts, Old Navy, $19.50.|
Don't ask me why this particular pair inspired me to take a fashion leap of faith, but they did and I had to have them. They were on sale so I wasn't investing too much on this risky (at least for me) style move. Long story short (hehe), I love them! The color, a perfect plumy shade, flatters my pale skin. The length is just right, hitting mid-thigh, makes my legs appear longer (a nearly impossible task when you are 5'2"). The cotton fabric is comfortable and easy to care for. I love these shorts so much that I have worn them at least three times this week. In honor of my new favorite shorts (words I thought I would never utter) I have put together two looks with just three pieces (button down shirt, tank top and cotton shorts) with an added a dollop of accessories. Enjoy!

That's it for this edition of outfit chronicles. What did you think of the one pair of shorts worn two ways? Do you have a favorite pair of shorts you wear again and again? Thanks for reading.
